Community Projects: Introducing E-ARK
20th May 2015 : 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
For decades memory institutions have put effort into dealing with pieces of the digital preservation puzzle. Unfortunately this has also resulted in quite a lot of fragmentation – solutions in place in different institutions and countries are not easily reusable in others. After carrying out extensive consultations with the European Commission a set of institutions (including OPF members: the Danish and Estonian National Archives) secured funding for a project which tackles the standardisation of the core interoperability aspects for a digital repository: pre-ingest, ingest and access. The project, called E-ARK (European Archival Records and Knowledge Preservation) has now finished its first year of activity and is able to present its main efforts, including draft SIP, AIP and DIP specifications and the workflows to implement and use these.
This webinar introduces the project’s plans for delivering a set of tools to ingest and access structured and unstructured content as well as adding big data support for a digital repository.
