The project will implement an ingest service based on the OAIS reference model for institutional archives built using Eprints software. Working with the National Archives, the project will link Eprints through a Web service to PRONOM software for identification and verification of file formats. The project will emphasise automation, will provide modular tools for capturing metadata and will enable the identification and verification of file formats. The project will scope a technology watch service to populate and update PRONOM where full automation is not feasible for file format recognition. This ingest service will be integrated into the Eprints deposit process for two existing institutional archives, at Southampton and Oxford Universities for evaluation, subject to prior satisfactory testing on pilot archives. The British Library and Southampton University will build and test an exemplar OAI-based preservation service. This service could be used with any OAI-compatible preservation archive to create a software-independent preservation archive. This project will work with other JISC approved projects in the JISC 4/04 programme and other JISC programmes to create institutional responsibility for preservation planning, data management, archival storage and administration, to effectively build a network of distributed and cooperating services that are based on the OAIS digital preservation reference model. Project start date: 2004-10-01. Project end date: 2006-09-01. (Excerpt from this source)
