1.30 - 1.45 Introduction (René van Horik, DANS) Link to Presentation

The introduction contains background information on the APARSEN network and introduces the "sustainability" topics that are covered by the project. These topics are: preservation services, storage solutions, cost issues related to digital preservation and business cases.

1.45 - 2.25 Preservation services (Prepared by: Science and Technology Facilities Council – STFC, Simon Lambert) Link to Presentation

Sustainability may be built on services that transcend an individual organisation. Both the supply and demand will be considered. What services are needed for a sustainable infrastructure? Conversely, what service offerings already exist or are under development? How may they be delivered? Is there a common view on what services can be shared?

2.25 - 3.05 Storage solutions (Prepared by: National Library of the Netherlands - KB, Jeffrey van der Hoeven) Link to Presentation

Storage is of course a central component in any preservation solution and requires special functionalities in order to adequately address the need of long-term preservation. APARSEN has surveyed the storage solutions currently in use among its partners, with emphasis on any exploitation of cloud based storage solutions. Business models and costs are the two main aspects considered.

3.05 - 3.25 - 3.05 Tea/Coffee

3.25 - 4.05 Cost issues related to digital preservation (Prepared by: British Library – BL, Kirnn Kaur) Link to Presentation

The first part of this presentation deals with why and how cost models contribute to sustainability. This is followed by an overview of a number of existing cost models for the preservation of digital information. Finally an analysis will be given of the different cost models with respect to their contribution to the sustainability of digital archives.

4.05 - 4.45 Business cases (Prepared by: University of Patras, Giannis Tsakonas) Link to Presentation

Based on recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Task Force (BRTF) on economically sustainable digital preservation, work is ongoing to produce:- a view of the current landscape in digital preservation activities and preparedness across Europe, and a roadmap that gives pointers and methodological guidelines on how to design, implement and operate digital preservation activities and services in the long run and under sustainable conditions.

The intention is that the roadmap will provide an efficient method for defining and reporting the interaction of memory institutions or repositories with other key stakeholders (policy makers, funders, private industry). The issues that are considered include, the preparedness for preservation management, digital curation of commercial content, Open Access content and Open Research Data, what infrastructures are available, what skills are needed, what funding is needed etc.

4.45 - 5.00 Conclusion
