Servicetypename Policy-based assessment service
Description Online service for content and metadata validation against well-defined (and certified) policies and standards.

For metadata, this could be like: 1) Takes a METS document containing PREMIS elements and validates it according to the PREMIS in METS Best Practice Guidelines. 2) Accepts a PREMIS XML document and creates a METS document with embedded PREMIS elements. 3) Accepts a METS XML document and creates a PREMIS document from any embedded PREMIS. 4) One can also generate PREMIS XML document for an uploaded file.

For objects, this could be like: Format validation is only one aspect of a quality assessment workflow. Digitisation guidelines typically impose various constraints on the technical characteristics of preservation and access images. For example, they may state that a preservation master must be losslessly compressed, and that its progression order must be RPCL. A format profile is a set of such technical constraints. The process that compares the technical characteristics of a file against a format profile is sometimes called Policy Driven Validation. This corresponds to what JHOVE2 refers to as Assessment (which I think is a better description).

Gap Manager can aid several tasks related to the preservation of the intelligibility of digital objects (performability of tasks in general). GapManager allows modelling and managing the dependencies between modules of various kinds (files, software, knowledge artifacts). It also allows expressing explicitly the assumptions regarding the knowledge of a designated community (for exploiting this information when forming packages for archiving, dissemination, etc).

See Access through a dedicated SPARQL endpoint will be provided within 2012.
