About Digital Preservation

The issue of trust is at the core of all digital preservation work, how do we trust that this digital object or data is what it claims to be? APARSEN will address issues of trust through work on testing environments, authenticity and provenance, annotation and data quality, and repository certification.

Digital repositories must be sustainable if they are to meet their preservation commitments in the medium to long-term. Work within APARSEN on topics such as cost/benefit analysis, preservation services, storage, and business cases will seek to bring together disparate research around this topic to help us build sustainable repositories.

APARSEN will be examining issues relating to interoperability, intelligibility and scalability to help develop a roadmap for how data and digital objects can remain useable and understandable in the long-term.

Without the ability to provide access to digital objects and data within a repository digital preservation fails. APARSEN will provide some of the answers to how access can be maintained through work on identifiers and citability, data policies and governance, and digital rights.
