what do i mean by digital preservation
What Do I Mean by Digital Preservation?
  • Two distinct, but equally important functions
    • Long-term maintenance of a bytestream (digital objects);
    • Continuing access to its contents over time and through changing technology

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

what does digital preservation do
What Does Digital Preservation Do?
  • Preservation should allow future users to:
    • retrieve, access, decipher, view, interpret, understand, appreciate, and experience
    • informational entities (i.e., documents, data, records, audio, video, etc.)
    • in whatever ways and for whatever purposes are desired in the future
    • while retaining their meaning and validity (i.e., their “authenticity”)

open archival information system reference model
Open Archival Information System Reference Model
  • Framework for understanding and applying concepts needed for long-term preservation of digital information
      • Development to fit certain information types (digital images, space systems data, etc.) left to those who adopt the model
  • Facilitates description and comparison of archives
  • Addresses a full range of archival functions
  • Broad, international interest

rlg oclc working group on digital archive attributes
RLG/OCLC Working Group on Digital Archive Attributes

Scope:

  • Create a definitional document describing the characteristics of reliable, digital archives for heterogeneous research collections
  • Identify tools to support institutions in seeking or building archiving services
  • Present recommendations to RLG and OCLC suggesting solutions for developing tool sets
  • Identify any follow-on activities required

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

draft report
Draft Report

Attributes of Trusted Digital Repositories: Meeting the Needs of Research Resources (August 2001)

www.rlg.org/longterm/attributes01.pdf

  • High-level, conceptual “discussion”
  • Provides a framework for the “deep infrastructure” identified in the 1996 report, Preserving Digital Information

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

what does the report do
What Does the Report Do?
  • Provides a definition of a trusted digital repository
  • Identifies the primary attributes of a trusted digital repository
  • Articulates a framework for the development of a certification program
  • Identifies the responsibilities of an OAIS-compliant repository

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

  • Have monitoring mechanisms in place
    • For systems
    • For procedures
  • Preservation strategies (migration, emulation, etc.) undertaken are recorded and justified in context of community best practices
  • Feedback mechanisms to support problem resolution

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

other important issues
Other Important Issues
  • The importance of trust
    • What is trust
    • Between what and whom
    • How is it validated?
  • The need for certification

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

certification
Certification
  • Key component of a trusted digital repository
  • Self-assessment will not always be adequate
    • especially if institutions choose to use third-party services
  • In past, certification practices have been informal and implicit

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

however
However,

the attributes to be measured in certification are easier to define than the process and infrastructure of certification

So where do we go from here?

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

framework for certification program
Framework for Certification Program
  • Determine the need for an official certifying body
    • and who it may be, qualifications, etc.
  • Identify the attributes to be measured
  • Specify the frequency or cycle of certification
  • Define the conditions for revocation of certification

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

applicability practicality
Applicability & Practicality
  • Number of institutions in the process of building and organizing digital repositories
  • Other organizations will look for third-party archiving services
  • Report articulates roles and responsibilities of long-term repositories
    • Provides a framework for measuring reliability and performance
    • Outlines a second framework for certification

FLICC/CENDI - 11 December 2001

next steps
Next steps
  • Certification effort surging forward
  • Tools for OAIS implementers
    • Discussion list for practitioners
    • Web site of organizations using OAIS
  • Follow-on recommendations
