  1. Component Business Model for Digital Repositories: A Framework for Analysis: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    van Diessen, Raymond J.; Lee, Christopher A.; Sierman, Barbara
    Digital preservation is too big a challenge for any institution or solution supplier to confront on its own. The success of any long-term digital repository will depend upon multiple “open” services provided by a wide range of service providers. No company or organisation in the world is able to provide the preservation solution for all known formats, object types, or policies. Viable approaches are likely to span organizational, institutional and national boundaries. In 2003 the KB, National Library of the Netherlands, in cooperation with IBM, developed the e-Depot as their solution for long-term preservation of digital publications. The core of...

  2. Preservation of Art in the Digital Realm: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Au Yeung, Tim; Greenberg, Saul; Carpendale, Sheelagh
    This paper discusses the challenges of preserving art in the digital context. It provides an overview of the broader digital preservation challenge, and then considers new media art within that context. Through several case studies, it illustrates and discusses problems, issues and proposed solutions to digital art preservation. We will see that while work has been done towards digital preservation, significant issues remain.

  3. Modeling Organizational Preservation Goals to Guide Digital Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Dappert, Angela; Farquhar, Adam
    Digital preservation activities can only succeed if they go beyond the technical properties of digital objects. They must consider the strategy, policy, goals, and constraints of the institution that undertakes them and take into account the cultural and institutional framework in which data, documents and records are preserved. Furthermore, because organizations differ in many ways, a one-sizefits-all approach cannot be appropriate. Fortunately, organizations involved in digital preservation have created documents describing their policies, strategies, workflows, plans, and goals to provide guidance. They also have skilled staff who are aware of sometimes unwritten considerations. Within Planets [Farquhar 2007], a four-year project...

  4. Development of Organisational and Business Models for the Long-Term Preservation of Digital Objects: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Beinert, Tobias; Rödig, Peter; Minkus, Michael; Hagel, Harald; Borghoff, Uwe M.; Schoger, Astrid; Lang, Susanne
    The number of digital objects (and digital collections) will increase rapidly within the next years since mass digitisation activities have started all over the world. Although it is obvious that these objects are of enormous scientific and cultural value, some crucial aspects of ensuring their long-term preservation and access to them have so far not been thoroughly addressed. This means that there is an urgent need for developing (and implementing) new and reliable models in order to deliver a sound organisational and financial framework for institutions (and enterprises), that are concerned with digitisation and long-term preservation of digital objects. To...

  5. Digital Preservation Policy: A subject of no importance?: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Beagrie, Neil; Williams, Peter; Rettberg, Najla
    There are relatively few digital preservation policies within institutions: is digital preservation a subject of no importance? This paper presents ongoing work and findings from a JISC funded study on institutional digital preservation policies which aims to provide an outline model for digital preservation policies and in particular to analyse the role that digital preservation can play in supporting and delivering key strategies for Higher Education Institutions in areas such as research and teaching and learning. Although focussing on the UK Higher Education sector, the study draws widely on policy and implementations from other sectors and countries and will be...

  6. Long-term Preservation of Electronic Literature: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Schrimpf, Sabine
    Authors have always been looking for new and innovative ways of aesthetical expression and they have been quick to take advantage of the new possibilities, offered by the World Wide Web and the Internet. Today, there is a respectable community – in terms of size and quality – of “digital poets”, who publish their texts in the internet and whose literature above all shares one mutual feature: a prominent and crucial use of computer technologies. Being the cultural heritage for future generations, electronic literature is worth preserving, just as any other form of contemporary literature. Yet, due to its use...

  8. Conceptual Framework for the Use of the Service-oriented Architecture-Approach in the Digital Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Saul, Christian; Klett, Fanny
    This paper presents a conceptual framework for the use of the SOA1-approach in the digital preservation. The focus of this work reflects the service composition part within the SOA service concept. Previously released approaches have been separately using process-oriented models to describe the behaviour of services, and structure composition models to represent service interactions. In this paper, the authors attempt to combine the even mentioned disjunctive models to obtain a comprehensive model, which represents both, the structure and the behaviour of the services. For this purpose, the novel SCA2-BPEL3 serves as basis for the implementation in a future-oriented SOA-compliant digital...

  9. Updating DAITSS - Transitioning to a web service architecture: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Fischer, Randall; Lazzarino, Franco; Chou, Carol
    The Florida Digital Archive (FDA) is a long-term preservation repository for the use of the libraries of the public universities of Florida. The FDA uses locally-developed software called DAITSS, which was designed to perform the major functions of Ingest, Archival Storage, Data Management and Dissemination in the OAIS reference model. A DAITSS 2 project is in process to re-write the application based on a distributed, Web services model. This paper describes the major changes in store for DAITSS 2.0, the rationale behind them, and the issues involved in their design and implementation. These changes include: moving from a monolithic to...

  10. Encouraging Cyberinfrastructure Collaboration for Digital Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Jordan, Christopher; McDonald, Robert H.; Minor, David; Kozbial, Ardys
    Over the last several decades, U.S. supercomputing centers such as the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC), the National Center for Supercomputer Applications (NCSA), and the Texas Advanced Computer Center (TACC), along with national partnerships such as the National Partnership for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (NPACI) and TeraGrid have developed a rich tradition of support for advanced computing applications and infrastructure. In addition, these centers have developed some of the worlds longest continually operating archives of digital information. These characteristics enable such nationally-funded centers to become natural partners for the library and archive communities as they develop digital preservation infrastructure. Concepts which...

  11. RODA and Crib : A Service-Oriented Digital Repository: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Ramalho, José Carlos; Corujo, Luis; Barbedo, Francisco; Castro, Rui; Faria, Luis; Ferreira, Miguel
    In 2006 the Portuguese National Archives (Directorate-General of the Portuguese Archives) engaged in the development of an OAIS compatible digital repository system for long-term preservation of digital material. Simultaneously, at the University of Minho a project called CRiB was being devised which aimed at the development of a wholesome set of services to aid digital preservation. Among those services were format converters, quality-assessment tools, preservation planning and automatic metadata production for retaining representations? authenticity. This paper provides a detailed description of both projects and discusses how these may be integrated into a complete digital preservation solution based on currently available...

  12. Persistent Identifiers distributed system for Cultural Heritage digital objects: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Bellini, Emanuele; Fugazza, Cristiano; Damiani, Ernesto; Lunghi, Maurizio; Cirinnà, Chiara
    In this paper, we present a prototype with a novel resolution architecture for an URN based Persistent Identifiers (PI) system in Italy. We describe a distribute approach for implementing the NBN namespace system and illustrate the solutions adopted for the assignment and resolution of the identifiers with the hierarchical and peer-to-peer request forwarding. Starting from the core motivations for ‘persistent identifiers’ for digital objects, we draw up a state of art of PI technologies, standards and initiatives, like other NBN implementations. The prototype is still under development and we present the next steps, in particular we describe the interoperability perspective...

  13. The Modeling System Reliability For Digital Preservation: Model Modification and Four-Copy Model Study: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Han, Yan; Chan, Chi Pak
    Research has been studied to evaluate the reliability of storage media and the reliability of a computer backup system. In this paper, we use the Continuous Time Markov Chain to model and analyze the reliability of a computer backup system. We propose a modified model from that of the Constantopoulos, Doerr and Petraki [1]. We analyze the difference, show computational results, and propose new input parameters (e.g. time to repair) for the model from our experience. Further we developed a four-copy data model to test if it fulfills the sample reliability rate set by the RLGNARA. The modeling process can...

  15. Bit Preservation: A Solved Problem?: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Rosenthal, David S. H.
    For years, discussions of digital preservation have routinely featured comments such as “bit preservation is a solved problem; the real issues are . . . ”. Indeed, current digital storage technologies are not just astoundingly cheap and capacious, they are astonishingly reliable. Unfortunately, these attributes drive a kind of “Parkinson’s Law” of storage, in which demands continually push beyond the capabilities of systems implementable at an affordable price. This paper is in four parts: • Claims, reviewing a typical claim of storage system reliability, showing that it provides no useful information for bit preservation purposes. • Theory, proposing “bit half-life” as an...

  16. Building a digital repository: a practical implementation: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Boudrez, Filip
    Implementation of a digital repository involves much more than just the installation of the required hardware and software. It is clear from the implementation path undertaken by the Antwerp City Archives over the past year and a half that it is also an organisational issue and requires fundamental consideration of core records management and recordkeeping issues.

  17. The KB e-Depot in development Integrating research results in the library organisation: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    van Wijngaarden, Hilde; Ras, Marcel; Houtman, Frank
    The mission of the KB e-Depot is to ensure permanent access to large quantities of digital resources in a national and international context. Operating an international e-journal archive at a relatively small organization such as the KB asks for a firm foundation of its policy. With support from the Dutch government, the KB has succeeded in setting up two expert teams: an operational team responsible for daily operations of the e-Depot (based in the Acquisitions & Processing Division) and an active research team that secures continuing research and development to secure long-term preservation and perpetual access to electronic information (based...

  18. Establishing a Community-based Approach to Electronic Journal Archiving: the UK LOCKSS Pilot Programme: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Rusbridge, Adam; Ross, Seamus
    Lots of Copies Keep Stuff Safe (LOCKSS1) represents a sophisticated combination of technical and business-aware elements that can be deployed to ensure the longterm accessibility to electronic journal content even if the publisher ceases to exist, a subscription is terminated, or the already acquired content becomes damaged. Given the potential benefits of LOCKSS to the UK community, and in consideration of the implications of the NESLi2 licences, the Joint Information Systems Committee2 and the Consortium of University Research Libraries3 (JISC/CURL) co-funded a UK LOCKSS Pilot Programme to explore issues associated with the practical implementation of LOCKSS in UK Higher Education...

  19. A Logic-Based Approach to the Formal Specification of Data Formats: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Hartle, Michael; Mühlhäuser, Max; Schumann, Daniel; Botchak, Arsene
    Processing information stored as data in a specific data format is tightly coupled with software implementations that handle necessary elementary processes such as reading and writing. These implementations depend on specific technological environments and thus age due to rapid technological change. The resulting effective loss of information is a major problem for Digital Preservation. In order to provide for persistent, authentic access to stored information, this paper presents a logic-based approach for the formal specification of data formats.

  20. Ways to deal with complexity: Paper - iPRES 2008 - London

    Keitel, Christian
    Several ways to deal with complexity are discussed. An archive can handle the matter by keeping the number of the single elements in the core areas of digital preservation down. The numbers of action types during the ingest process, of metadata and journals could be reduced. A preservation model for analogue and digital records is outlined. By keeping complexity down, it’s easier to see what digital and analogue archiving have in common. Instead of seeing two totally different worlds (here is the old one, there is the new one), one can shift to a less revolutionary view. This makes it...
