Preserving Digital Content at Scale: Active Digital Preservation and Data/Metadata Migration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

As institutions acquire and create more and more digital content it has become a problem to manage the workflow at an institutional level. Digital projects have been funded through different funding streams, stored in different places, and have metadata assigned in different ways creating confusion about how to prioritize and manage the preservation of this content. The focus of content stewardship is shifting from being application-centric to data-centric, with the understanding that content must move through time. In order to provide effective content stewardship and mechanisms to move repository data during content/data migrations and to preservation systems, significant efforts are needed for various import, export, verification, and management services.

This panel will present case studies in moving content through preservation activities with APTrust, the Digital Preservation Network, MetaArchive, and local applications through cases at the University of Wisconsin, Northwestern University, Pennsylvania State University, and recent work in the Fedora community. The presentations will highlight common methodologies, present new initiatives, and elicit group discussion on strategic and sustainable planning for active digital preservation.
