Beyond the Repository: Integrating Local Preservation Systems with National Distribution Services

Project: Research project

Project Details


Cultural heritage institutions have established repository systems to preserve digital content generated or collected by their constituencies. An essential aspect of digital preservation is risk management. To mitigate risk factors associated with digital preservation concerns, several distributed preservation services, such as The Digital Preservation Network, Chronopolis, and the Academic Preservation Trust have arisen. As these services have matured, the problem of tracking data from a local repository to a distributed service has not been resolved. This grant will articulate questions around the integration of local services with distributed preservation networks, identify broadly-applicable solutions and design patterns, and propose high-level technical solutions.
