Digital Preservation Interoperability through Preservation Actions Registries

15th Nov 2018 : 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This webinar will explore the background and motivation for the Preservation Action Registries (PAR) project. Funded as part of the Jisc Research Data Shared Service (RDSS) pilot program, the project has created an initial proof-of-concept for the exchange of recommended preservation actions.

Current digital preservation systems such as Archivematica and Preservica lack a common and consistent way to describe and execute preservation policies and actions at a technical level. Archivematica’s Format Policy Register (FPR) and Preservica’s LinkedData Registry (LDR) both define what tools and rules to use when doing digital preservation and whilst these two approaches aim to solve similar problems, they are not interoperable.

The PAR project aims to capture and share technical best practice for the preservation of digital objects in the form of a corpus of machine-readable recommendations. The registry’s data model defines what tools can be used for different digital object formats, what properties can be extracted or measured and what preservation actions can be taken.

Join us to learn about the project outcomes to date, see a demonstration of the proof of concept and find out about the next steps and how you can get involved.
