In a previous blog post I showed how we resurrected NL-menu, the first Dutch web index. It explains how we recovered the site’s data from an old CD-ROM, and how we subsequently created a local copy of the site by serving the CD-ROM’s contents on the Apache web server. This follow-up post covers the final […]

NL-menu was the first Dutch web index. The site was originally founded by a consortium of SURFnet, Dutch universities and the KB. From the mid-nineties onwards it was maintained solely by the KB. NL-menu was discontinued in 2004, after which the site was taken offline. In 2006 the domain name was sold to a private […]

Related to my work exploring hyperlinks in documentary heritage – something I feel we’ll be taking care of for a long time – I created a hyperlink extract tool called tikalinkextract. Put simply – the tool will take your collection of files, extract the intellectual content using Apache Tika, and then analyse that content for […]

Much of the inspiration from this blog came from this source here. According to UNESCO, the authenticity of a record can be jeopardized by: Threats to integrity. Changes to the content of the object itself also potentially damage authenticity. Most such changes stem from threats to the object at a data level. A hyperlink is data. […]

We recently posted an article on the UK Web Archive blog that may be of interest here, User-Driven Digital Preservation, where we summarise our work with the SCAPE Project on a little prototype application that explores how we might integrate user feedback and preservation actions into our usual discovery and access processes. The idea is […]

I would like to draw your attention to the new QA tool for finger detection on scans: https://github.com/openplanets/finger-detection-tool. This tool was developed by AIT in scope of the SCAPE project.   Checking to identify fingers on scan manually is a very time-consuming and error-prone process. You need a tool to help you: Fingerdet. Fingerdet is […]

Well over a year ago I wrote the ”A Year of FITS”(http://www.openpreservation.org/blogs/2013-01-09-year-fits) blog post describing how we, during the course of 15 months, characterised 400 million of harvested web documents using the File Information Tool Kit (FITS) from Harvard University. I presented the technique and the technical metadata and basically concluded that FITS didn’t fit […]

In my last blog post about ARC to WARC migration I did a performance comparison of two alternative approaches for migrating very large sets of ARC container files to the WARC format using Apache Hadoop, and I said that resolving contextual dependencies in order to create self-contained WARC files was the next point to investigate […]
