The bits (original or migrated) let us for the moment put to one side the issue of BIT PRESERVATION (but it is an issue) Physical documents that people can read e.g. ISO standards on paper Additional information we collect either held by the DCC, its collaborators or successors Slide 5 Development 5 Preservation vs Current Use There are already very many architectures to support immediate use of information Aim to support these Therefore chose to be guided by long-term preservation aspects try to ensure that components of the preservation architecture can supplement other current use architectures. to promote this we should emphasise interoperability and automated use as far as possible. based initially on OAIS Reference Model but not limited to that Slide 6 Development 6 OAIS Reference Model Functional Model Slide 7 Development 7 OAIS Preservation Planning - key aspects Designated Communities & Knowledge Base Representation Net Slide 8 Development 8 Representation Net Industry research collaborators standards bodies testbeds & tools communities of practice: users community support & outreach researc h development co- ordination service definition & delivery managemen t & admin support Collaborative Associates Network of Data Organisations curation organisations eg DPC Slide 9 Development 9 Representation Information vs File Format File Format provides only limited information Knowing that a file is in Word 6.0 format does not allow one to understand its contents e.g. File contains French text File has text with specialised terms Science data file (e.g. FITS) also has keywords and values What do they mean? Representation Information is not limited in this way N.B. includes File Format See DCC demo Registry/Repository of Representation Info Low cost of buy-in Slide 10 Development 10 Archival Information Package Industry research collaborators standards bodies testbeds & tools communities of practice: users community support & outreach researc h development co- ordination service definition & delivery managemen t & admin support Collaborative Associates Network of Data Organisations curation organisations eg DPC Slide 11 Development 11 Testbeds Hardware used by curators in the wild Details from projects Hardware suppliers Software suppliers Commercial Non-commercial Industry research collaborators standards bodies testbeds & tools communities of practice: users community support & outreach researc h development co- ordination service definition & delivery managemen t & admin support Collaborative Associates Network of Data Organisations curation organisations eg DPC Slide 12 Development 12 Standards and Audit & Certification How can people know to whom their information can be entrusted? OAIS follow-on standard(s) underway on which a certification program can be based From the standards: need to establish accreditation and certification bodies in preparation for offering audit and certification services audit, certification and accreditation are potential sources of long term funding for the DCC Testbeds and testing procedures for software certification hardware and software systems will need to be purchased, hired or borrowed. we expect to work with hardware and software manufacturers to certify hardware and software components Industry research collaborators standards bodies testbeds & tools communities of practice: users community support & outreach researc h development co- ordination service definition & delivery managemen t & admin support Collaborative Associates Network of Data Organisations curation organisations eg DPC Slide 13 Development 13 Working with Others Digital Library Federation The National Archives Global Grid Forum NARA Library of Congress Research Library Group Digital Preservation Coalition JISC community E-Science Community Associates Network and many more Industry research collaborators standards bodies testbeds & tools communities of practice: users community support & outreach researc h development co- ordination service definition & delivery managemen t & admin support Collaborative Associates Network of Data Organisations curation organisations eg DPC Development info see http://dev.dcc.rl.ac.uk/twiki/bin/view for details of Wiki and email list open to all Slide 14 The Virtuous Circle Industry research collaborators standards bodies testbeds & tools communities of practice: users community support & outreach research development co-ordination service definition & delivery management & admin support curation organisations eg DPC Collaborative Associates Network of Data Organisations
