From the Toolbox: Long-term preservation with dArceo
4th Dec 2014 : 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
This webinar gives an overview of the “Digitise and Go” toolset (DInGO, http://dingo.psnc.pl/) with a special focus on the dArceo long-term preservation tool, including its main features, general architecture and production-mode case studies. The ultimate goal of dArceo is to assure long-term preservation of master files using OAIS transformation approach (migration). dArceo runs in a service mode manner to provide simple way for integration with external systems (e.g. digitisation workflow management). To preserve data dAarceo uses many already available preservation tools (e.g. FITS, DROID, UDFR, ffmpeg, JHOVE) and well-known formats (e.g. METS, PREMIS, MIX, AES57, TextMD). There are already several production mode deployments of dArceo in Poland, including very small institutions, universities as well as large consortia. dArceo code-base was initiated within the framework of a national project funded by the Polish National Centre for Research and Development. PSNC is currently in the process of releasing dArceo open-souce.
