Preservation Services

Recognition of where there may be benefits of common infrastructure components will accelerate developments and link in to the e-infrastructures being put in place. In this work package, APARSEN aims at identifying and reach agreement on preservation services which can be shared between organisations. This is not to imply a one-size-fits-all set but rather an appreciation of the diversity of challenges and solutions appropriate to the various user communities.

The initial set of services will be based on the technical components in the PARSE.Insight roadmap: registry services, change management services, audit and certification services, and storage services. The survey will include both available technologies as well as prospective developments from research. Comparing service features in workshops and challenging services with different views and different types of digitally encoded information in testbeds will guide the identification of common services and of boundaries of their applicability.

The work will finally lead to categorized requirements of the various user communities and the actual definition of services to fulfill those requirements. The list will distinguish general, infrastructure-type components and tools and techniques specific to user communities. Nonetheless, the findings should demonstrate a high degree of consensus.
