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]

Research in digital preservation field has realized the need for au-tomation of digital preservation activities. Without automation, the preservation of digital entities will be a complex and labor-intensive task. A middleware con-cept has been introduced by scholars to support automation of interactions be-tween content management systems and digital preservation systems. To boost the automation of workflows in the middleware, we introduce a component within the middleware, namely Context-aware Preservation Manager (CaPM), which is in charge of administration of the inner components of the middleware and the workflows for bi-directional interactions between content management systems and digital preservation systems. We describe the specifications of the Context-aware Preservation Manager and depict its inner components. Further, we explain about the processes that are improved, supported or can run automat-ically as a result of functionalities of Context-aware Preservation Manager.

Abstract [en]

Commercial organizations are experiencing a growing need to access business-criticaldata in the longer term of their operations. Governmental regulations as well as commercial interestsinfluence this need. Organizations are willing to procure cost-effective services to this end - servicesthat are increasingly based as public or private cloud solutions. With the advent of autonomous cloudservices comes the possibility to assemble (mix and match) preservation services in a workflowbasedservice-oriented solution. Following the interaction with information managers in (three)commercial organizations operating in different markets and after a review of current literature, wehave revealed a lack of comprehensive guidelines and decision support in service selection as part ofpreservation planning. Existing models and frameworks used for assessing the quality of preservationservices either manage performance-based features that service provider’s offer or the technicaldetails of the preservation actions themselves. In this paper we present our preservation-planningframework (Preserv-Qual) that addresses the need for decision support in the selection ofpreservation services that explicitly acknowledge the differences among aspects of information usewithin an organization. We describe the outcome from an evaluation of the framework in threecommercial organisations as a service quality assessment and decision support tool. This papershows how our framework supports the use of existing and proven methods, models and principlesfor service assessment, digital preservation and decision support.

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.
