Abstract [en]

Purpose

This paper aims to automate pre-ingest workflow for preserving digital content, such as records, through middleware that integrates potentially many information systems with potentially several alternative digital preservation services.

Design/methodology/approach

This design research approach resulted in a design for model- and component-based software for such workflow. A proof-of-concept prototype was implemented and demonstrated in context of a European research project, ForgetIT.

Findings

The study identifies design issues of automated pre-ingest for digital preservation while using middleware as a design choice for this purpose. The resulting model and solution suggest functionalities and interaction patterns based on open interface protocols between the source systems of digital content, middleware and digital preservation services. The resulting workflow automates the tasks of fetching digital objects from the source system with metadata extraction, preservation preparation and transfer to a selected preservation service. The proof-of-concept verified that the suggested model for pre-ingest workflow and the suggested component architecture was technologically implementable. Future research and development needs to include new solutions to support context-aware preservation management with increased support for configuring submission agreements as a basis for dynamic automation of pre-ingest and more automated error handling.

Originality/value

The paper addresses design issues for middleware as a design choice to support automated pre-ingest in digital preservation. The suggested middleware architecture supports many-to-many relationships between the source information systems and digital preservation services through open interface protocols, thus enabling dynamic digital preservation solutions for records management.

Abstract [en]

The fields of long-term digital preservation (DP) and enterprise content management (ECM) have remained, until recently, rather separated. Along with increasing amounts of digital content and evolving DP services, there is a need for maximal automation of preservation processes from ECM systems instead of continuing current resource-consuming practices. This paper aims at a design problem definition on the integration of ECM and DP solutions. In order to motivate and to define the problem in more detail, we conducted a review on ECM and DP literatures touching the issue. The review reveals a research gap addressing a need for designing new middleware solutions for interactive processes between ECM and DP. We suggest a general-level model of three such processes between ECM and DP: preservation administration, pre-ingest, and access. The article concludes with avenues for future research on novel solutions for integrating DP with contemporary ECM and other information systems in organizations.

Abstract [en]

In organizations, information systems produce increasing amounts of digital information that needs to be preserved. Simultaneously, human intervention in preservation activities needs to be minimized, due to scarce resources available for preservation. Thus, digital preservation services need to be integrated with other organizational information systems as seamlessly as possible, and preservation activities need to be maximally automated. Selection of adequate cloud-based preservation services poses yet another set of challenges for reaching the seamless integration and automation. Two sources of challenges relate to administrating integrated digital preservation and information systems. Firstly, information systems change over time. Secondly, digital preservation services change over time. This paper contributes by identifying and analyzing scenarios and design issues of administering digital preservation in connection to the changes in information systems and preservation services over time. We also suggest seven generic tasks of the “preservation administration” component, which are needed between digital preservation services and information systems and discuss about the choices of locating the operative responsibilities and middleware.

Abstract [en]

This report covers a systematic study of existing research literature on smooth bi-directional preservation transition between producers system (active system) and a Synergetic Preservation system. This transition is meant to be as transparent as possible to the user, and also be able to fetch material from the preservation system in a smooth way. The report also includes a study on gaps that could be identified from existing research and what this integration would need to cover, and how it conceptually could work in Content Management Systems (use case: Typo3) and Personal Information Management (use case: Semantic Desktop / PIMO). The report groups activities into three high-level workflows; Preservation planning and administration, Preservation, and Access and retrieval. In these workflows, the contextual preservation administration, which link the preservation and storage services to particular information systems and maintains the contextualized preservation and access workflows, interfaces and ontologies, is something that needs further development during the project, since it includes many of the project specific peculiarities. This also goes for the other components of the middleware, which also are contextually aware, and part of the "forgetting" approach. Both workshop results and the literature review shows that integration of these workflows with the producing workflows should be done in a way that makes it low-effort, generic, and transparent – which goes well together with what the project set out to do. Most likely some sort of automatic appraisal needs to take place already in the producing systems, and the challenge here would be to make it non-intrusive but effective. The ideas and results from this report will serve as a starting point for design and integration that will take place in WP5 of the ForgetIT project, in particular for T5.2 and T5.3 as well as D5.2. The ideas in this report are however not strict rules to be followed, and may be altered or improved as work continues in above mentioned tasks. Any such actions will be reflected in D5.2 or subsequent reports.

Abstract [en]

Successfully preserving information for the future draws upon multiple domains of knowledge, specifically knowledge about effects of technological and social change. The preservation process should accommodate for these effects in order to provide future access to the preserved information. If information production and information preservation occur in different organizations, such as when an organization uses external preservation services, special attention has to be given to the planning of the preservation process. Studies in the project ENSURE (Enabling kNowledge Sustainability Usability and Recovery for Economic value) indicate that the preservation planning is a joint effort drawing upon distinct knowledge that each organization have – knowledge about the information and knowledge about the preservation process. We describe some inherent problems emanating from cooperatively planning how to preserve information.

Abstract [en]

Websites constitute one category of official records and as such should be preserved for the long term in compliance with Swedish legislation. Collaborative Archiving Services Testbed (CAST) supports actors involved in the selective web archiving process, from harvesting to the creation of an information package ready for transfer to a long-term archive at National Archives of Sweden. CAST is developed in compliance with the ISO standards Open Archival Information System (OAIS) and Producer-Archive Interface Methodology Abstract Standard (PAIMAS), and do also consider other well-known and established standards and recommendations in digital preservation area. CAST promotes cooperation, knowledge acquisition and sharing among users in an experimental step-by-step workflow, encouraging a proactive approach resulting in authority websites better adapted to digital preservation recommendations. CAST is developed at LDP Centre, a national competence centre in Sweden, within the digital preservation area.
