The NSF-DIGARCH is building digital preservation lifecycle management infrastructure for the preservation of large-scale multimedia collections. The infrastructure consists of interfaces to TV production lifecycle systems, metadata definition and capture systems, and a persistent archive workflow which preserves the material in a SRB data grid. Kepler is used to build the workflow.

A scientific workflow solution to the archiving of digital media
This work presents production-quality solutions that automate this process and make use of Kepler scientific workflows and Storage Resource Broker (SRB) data grid environments.
Sustaining accessibility of information through digital preservation: A literature review
A systematic literature review of methods and techniques geared towards securing long-term access to digital information points towards some unsolved organizational issues such as lacking methods to support cost–benefit analysis or DP decision-making.
Investigating the Needs, Capabilities and Decision Making Mechanisms in Digital Preservation: Insights from a Multiple Case Study
The results indicate that a lack of decision making procedures and responsibilities impedes the alignment between DP needs and capabilities, which seems to foster a culture of information hoarding.


Digital Preservation Lifecycle Management for Multi-media Collections
This project takes an existing video production workflow and integrates it with a digital preservation life-cycle management process that will enable the digital content to be archived for long-term preservation.
Data grids, collections, and grid bricks
By integrating grid bricks (commodity based disk caches) with archival storage systems, one can assemble a data management environment that supports both interactive access ( data picking) and long-term persistent storage.
