EPTD Discussion Papers contain preliminary material and research results, and are circulated prior to a full peer review in order to stimulate discussion and critical comment. It is expected that most Discussion Papers will eventually be published in some other form, and that their content may also be revised. World Bank Disclaimer: The findings,(More)
This paper discusses the use of standardized bibliographic metadata sets for the retrieval of software components. Their proven success, and the assumption that software components are a sort of dynamic document, leads to the assumption that it could be effective to adopt bibliographic metadata element sets for resource discovery of software components.(More)
Emulation has been proposed as a preservation strategy for longevity of digital objects. An advantage of emulation is the relative platform independency. Emulation with a high degree of platform independency requires a Universal Virtual Computer (UVC), as described by Lorie. This paper describes the realization of the enhanced UVC developed for the National(More)
The DARELUX project envisages long-term storage of hydrology measurement data in a permanent archive. In order to make the DARELUX hydrology data sets accessible in an unknown future, a future-proof metadata element set is wanted. An analysis of current standards and best practices for metadata lead to the choice of the metadata of the Dublin Core Metadata(More)
The purpose of the DareLux (Data Archiving River Environment Luxembourg) Project was the preservation of unique and irreplaceable datasets, for which we chose hydrology data that will be required to be used in future climatic models. The results are: an operational archive built with XML containers, the OAI-PMH protocol and an architecture based upon web(More)
