In this paper we will explore the major themes within Chronopolis.

  2. Integrating Metadata Standards to Support Long-Term Preservation of Digital Assets: Developing Best Practices for Expressing Preservation Metadata in a Container Format: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Guenther, Rebecca; Wolfe, Robert
    This paper explores the purpose and development of best practice guidelines for the use of preservation metadata as detailed in the PREMIS Data Dictionary for Preservation Metadata within documents conforming to the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS). METS is an XML schema that provides a container format integrating various forms of metadata with digital objects or links to digital objects. Because of the flexibility of METS to serve many different functions within digital systems and to support many different metadata structures, integration guidelines will facilitate common practices among institutions. There is constant tension between tighter control over the METS...

  3. Towards a Methodology for Software Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Matthews, Brian; Conway, Esther; Woodcock, Jim; Jones, Catherine; Bicarregui, Juan; Shaon, Arif
    Only a small part of the research which has been carried out to date on the preservation of digital objects has looked specifically at the preservation of software. This is because the preservation of software has been seen as a less urgent problem than the preservation of other digital objects, and also the complexity of software artifacts makes the problem of preserving them a daunting one. Nevertheless, there are good reasons to want to preserve software. In this paper we consider some of the motivations behind software preservation, based on an analysis of software preservation practice. We then go on...

  4. Where the Semantic Web and Web 2.0 Meet Format Risk Management: P2 Registry: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Tarrant, David; Carr, Les; Hitchcock, Steve
    The Web is increasingly becoming a platform for linked data. This means making connections and adding value to data on the Web. As more data becomes openly available and more people are able to use the data, it becomes more powerful. An example is file format registries and the evaluation of format risks. Here the requirement for information is now greater than the effort that any single institution can put into gathering and collating this information. Recognising that more is better, the creators of PRONOM, JHOVE, GDFR and others are joining to lead a new initiative, the Unified Digital Format...

  5. Tools for Preservation and Use of Complex and Diverse Digital Resources: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Giaretta, David
    This paper will describe the tools and infrastructure components which have been implemented by the CASPAR project to support repositories in their task of long term preservation of digital resources. We address also the capture and preservation of digital rights management and evidence of authenticity associated with digital objects. Moreover examples of ways to evaluate a variety of preservation strategies will be discussed as will examples of integrating the use of these infrastructure components and tools into existing repository systems. Examples will be given of a rich selection of digital objects which encode information from a variety of disciplines including...

  6. A Translation Layer to Convey Preservation Metadata: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Di Iorio, Angela
    The long term preservation is a responsibility to share with other organizations, even adopting different preservation methods and tools. The overcoming of the interoperability issues, by means of the achievement of a flawless exchange of digital assets to preserve, enables the feasibility of applying distributed digital preservation policies. The Archives Ready To AIP Transmission a PREMIS Based Project (ARTAT-PBP) aims to experiment with the adoption of a common preservation metadata standard as interchange language in a network of cooperating organizations that need to exchange digital resources with the mutual objective of preserving them in the long term.

  7. An Emergent Micro-Services Approach to Digital Curation Infrastructure: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Abrams, Stephen; Loy, David; Kunze, John
    In order better to meet the needs of its diverse University of California constituencies, the California Digital Library UC Curation Center is re-envisioning its approach to digital curation infrastructure by devolving function into a set of granular, independent, but interoperable microservices. Since each of these services is small and self-contained, they are more easily developed, deployed, maintained, and enhanced; at the same time, complex curation function can emerge from the strategic combination of atomistic services. The emergent approach emphasizes the persistence of content rather than the systems in which that management occurs, thus the paradigmatic archival culture is not unduly...

  8. Born Broken: Fonts and Information Loss in Legacy Digital Documents: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Brown, Geoffrey; Woods, Kam
    For millions of legacy documents, correct rendering depends upon resources such as fonts that are not generally embedded within the document structure. Yet there is significant risk of information loss due to missing or incorrectly substituted fonts. In this paper we use a collection of 230,000 Word documents to assess the difficulty of matching font requirements with a database of fonts. We describe the identifying information contained in common font formats, font requirements stored in Word documents, the API provided by Windows to support font requests by applications, the documented substitution algorithms used by Windows when requested fonts are not...

  9. Implementing Metadata that Guides Digital Preservation Services: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Dappert, Angela; Farquhar, Adam
    Effective digital preservation depends on a set of preservation services that work together to ensure that digital objects can be preserved for the long-term. These services need digital preservation metadata, in particular, descriptions of the properties that digital objects may have and descriptions of the requirements that guide digital preservation services. This paper analyzes how these services interact and use this metadata and develops a data dictionary to support them.

  10. Curating Scientific Research Data for the Long Term: A Preservation Analysis Method in Context: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Conway, Esther; Giaretta, David; Dunckley, Matthew
    The challenge of digital preservation of scientific data lies in the need to preserve not only the dataset itself but also the ability it has to deliver knowledge to a future user community. A true scientific research asset allows future users to reanalyze the data within new contexts. Thus, in order to carry out meaningful preservation we need to ensure that future users are equipped with the necessary information to re-use the data. This paper presents an overview of a preservation analysis methodology which was developed in response to that need on the CASPAR and Digital Curation Centre SCARP projects....

  11. LIFE3: Predicting Long Term Digital Preservation Costs: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Wheatley, Paul; Hole, Brian
    This paper will provide an overview of developments from the two phases of the LIFE (Lifecycle Information for E-Literature) project, LIFE1 and LIFE2, before describing the aims and latest progress from the third phase. Emphasis will be placed on the various approaches to estimate preservation costs including the use of templates to facilitate user interaction with the costing tool. The paper will also explore how the results of the Project will help to inform preservation planning and collection management decisions with a discussion of scenarios in which the LIFE costing tool could be applied. This will be supported by a...

  12. Distributed Digital Preservation: Technical, Sustainability, and Organizational Developments: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Walters, Tyler; Wilson, Thomas C.; Jordan, Mark; Gore, Emily B.; Bishoff, Liz
    Representatives from a variety of distributed digital preservation initiatives will serve as panel members and discuss the technical adaptability, economics, and functionally compelling benefits of using cooperative distributed digital preservation networks to preserve the vast array of at-risk digital content produced by our societies and their institutions.

  13. Novel Workflows for Abstract Handling of Complex Interaction Processes in Digital Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Rechert, Klaus; Schroder, Jasper; van der Hoeven, Jeffrey; Roberts, Bill; van den Dobbelsteen, Maurice; Welte, Randolph; von Suchodoletz, Dirk
    The creation of most digital objects occurs solely in interactive graphical user interfaces which were available at the particular time period. Archiving and preservation organizations are posed with large amounts of such objects of various types. At some point they will need to, if possible, automatically process these to make them available to their users or convert them to a valid format. A substantial problem in creating an automated process is the availability of suitable tools. We are suggesting a new method, which uses an operating system and application independent interactive workflow for the migration of digital objects using an...

  14. Into the Archive: Potential and Limits of Standardizing the Ingest: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Ludwig, Jens
    The ingest and its preparation are crucial steps and of strategical importance for digital preservation. If we want to move digital preservation into the mainstream we have to make them as easy as possible. The aim of the NESTOR guide "Into The Archive" is to help streamlining the planning and execution of ingest projects. The main challenge for such a guide is to provide help for a broad audience with heterogeneous use cases and without detailed background knowledge on the producer side. This paper will introduce the guide, present first experiences and discuss the challenges.

  15. ArchivePress: A Really Simple Solution to Archiving Blog Content: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Pennock, Maureen; Davis, Richard
    Blog archiving and preservation is not a new challenge. Current solutions are commonly based on typical web archiving activities, whereby a crawler is configured to harvest a copy of the blog and return the copy to a web archive. Yet this is not the only solution, nor is it always the most appropriate. We propose that in some cases, an approach building on the functionality provided by web feeds offers more potential. This paper describes research to develop such an approach, suitable for organisations of varying size and which can be implemented with relatively little resource and technical know-how: the...

  16. Are You Ready? Assessing Whether Organisations are Prepared for Digital Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Sinclair, Pauline; Sharpe, Robert; Keen, Ann; Jardine, Lewis; Humphreys, Jane; Farquhar, Adam; Duckworth, James; Billenness, Clive
    In the last few years digital preservation has started to transition from a theoretical discipline to one where real solutions are beginning to be used. The Planets project has analyzed the readiness of libraries, archives and related organizations to begin to use the outputs of various digital preservation initiatives (and, in particular, the outputs of the Planets project). This talk will discuss the outcomes of this exercise which have revealed an increasing understanding the problem. It has also shown concerns about its scale (in terms of data volumes and types of data) and on the maturity of existing solutions (most...

  17. MIXED: Repository of Durable File Format Conversions: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    van Horik, René; Roorda, Dirk
    DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services), the Dutch scientific data archive for the social sciences and humanities is engaged in the MIXED project to develop open source software that implements the “smart migration” strategy concerning the long-term archiving of file formats. Smart migration concerns the conversion upon ingest of specific kinds of data formats, such as spreadsheets and databases, to an intermediate XML formatted file. It is assumed that the longterm curation of the XML files is much less problematic than the migration of binary source files and that the intermediate XML file can be converted in an efficient way...

  18. Mainstreaming Preservation through Slicing and Dicing of Digital Repositories: Investigating Alternative Service and Resource Options for ContextMiner Using Data Grid Technology: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Lee, Christopher; Shah, Chirag; Hou, Chien-Yi; Marciano, Richard
    A digital repository can be seen as a combination of services, resources, and policies. One of the fundamental design questions for digital repositories is how to break down the services and resources: who will have responsibility, where they will reside, and how they will interact. There is no single, optimal answer to this question. The most appropriate arrangement depends on many factors that vary across repository contexts and are very likely to change over time. This paper reports on our investigation and testing of various repository "slicing and dicing" scenarios, their potential benefits, and implications for implementation, administration, and service...

  19. Towards Support for Long-Term Digital Preservation in Product Life Cycle Management: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Wilkes, Wolfgang; Heidbrink, Hans-Ulrich; Hemmje, Matthias; Hundsdörfer, Andreas; Heutelbeck, Dominic; Brunsmann, Jörg
    Important legal and economic motivations exist for the design and engineering industry to address and integrate digital long-term preservation into product life cycle management (PLM). Investigations revealed that it is not sufficient to archive only the product design data which is created in early PLM phases, but preservation is needed for data that is produced during the entire product lifecycle including early and late phases. Data that is relevant for preservation consists of requirements analysis documents, design rationale, data that reflects experiences during product operation and also metadata like social collaboration context. In addition, also the engineering environment itself that...

  20. The National Digital Stewardship Alliance Charter: Enabling Collaboration to Achieve National Digital Preservation: Paper - iPRES 2009 - San Francisco

    Anderson, Martha; Potter, Abigail; Gallinger, Michelle
    The Library of Congress proposes extending the success of the NDIIPP (National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program) network by forming a national stewardship alliance of committed digital preservation partners.
