AbstractTo date, long-term preservation approaches have comprised of emulation, migration, normalization, and metadata – or some combination of these. Most existing work has focussed on applying these approaches to digital objects of a singular media type: text, HTML, images, video or audio. In this paper, we consider the preservation of composite, mixed-media digital objects, a rapidly growing class of resources. We describe an integrated, flexible system that we have developed, which… 
PreScan: towards automating the preservation of digital objects
This paper proposes a semi-automatic approach that binds in a flexible manner (a) automatically extracted embedded metadata, (b) manually provided metadata, and (c) dependency management services, and elaborate on the problem of keeping the metadata repository up-to-date.
Adding Quality-Awareness to Evaluate Migration Web-Services and Remote Emulation for Digital Preservation
A preservation action monitoring infrastructure that combines provider-side service instrumentation and quality measurement of migration web services with remote access to emulation with results from experiments on migration and emulation services are presented.
Automatic digital preservation solutions enabled by Web services & intelligent agents
This paper briefly introduces how the aforementioned digital preservation challenge is addressed by the PROTAGE system, which is being developed by an EU-funded FP7 project.
A Functional Model of a Digital Preservation Testbed
This thesis describes the functional model of a testbed for digital preservation by using the use case methodology and describes the user profiles and roles that are interacting with the system and the main blocks of functionality that the system needs to provide.
A Metadata Extraction Approach for Selecting Migration Solutions
A new solution to retrieve information about the old situation from stored metadata is designed and evaluated in an experiment, under which there are several sets of image files to be migrated.
Automating the preservation planning process : An extensible evaluation framework for digital preservation
An extensible integration architecture for automating the analysis and evaluation of potential preservation actions connecting requirements and criteria to measurable factors both in the environment and the digital objects themselves is presented.
This is a semantic formalisation of the PREMIS 2.2 data dictionary of the Library of Congress that can be used for dissemination of the preservation metadata as Linked Open Data on the Web and, at the same time, for supporting semantic web technologies in the preservation processes.
A Risk Analysis of File Formats for Preservation Planning
The goal is to make use of a solid knowledge base automatically aggregated from linked open data repositories as the basis for a risk analysis in the digital preservation domain, and develops a tool for aggregating rich and trusted file format descriptions.
The long-term preservation of Web content
The International Internet Preservation Consortium (IIPC) is currently building on this legacy with the collaborative development of a set of tools that can be used for the capture of Web sites and for the navigation and searching of Web archives.
A Metadata Framework for Long Term Digital Preservation of 3D Data
This paper proposes a framework to support semantic data associated with a 3D object and outlines two of the greatest challenges in developing such a framework: anticipating what semantic information should be included within the framework and in what format it should be modeled.


Implementing Preservation Strategies for Complex Multimedia Objects
This paper considers the preservation of composite, mixed-media, objects, a rapidly growing class of resources, and describes the optimum preservation strategies that are determined for each exemplar and the software tools that are developed to support and implement those strategies.
Preservation functionality in a digital archive
The design of the Preservation Manager, its rationale, and the way it is used within the operational digital archiving environment of the KB e-Depot are presented.
Ontology-Mediated Integration of Intranet Web Services
The smart office task automation framework uses Web services, an ontology, and agent components to create an integrated information-service platform that provides user-centric support for automating intranet office tasks.
METS: The Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard

Using MPEG-21 DIDL to Represent Complex Digital Objects in the Los Alamos National Laboratory Digital Library
A brief insight is given into the MPEG-21 standardization effort, major characteristics of DIDL are highlighted, and research conducted at the Research Library of the Los Alamos National Laboratory into the applicability of DidL for the representation of complex objects in the LANL repository is details.
Assessing the Durability of Formats in a Digital Preservation Environment: The INFORM Methodology
Inform, a new methodology for investigating and measuring the risk factors of digital formats and providing guidelines for preservation action plans, takes into consideration individuals’ aversion to risk.
Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL) 2.0
This document specifies the second version of the Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL, pronounced "smile"). SMIL 2.0 has the following two design goals: * Define an XML-based language
Automating DAML-S Web Services Composition Using SHOP2
This work has proven the correspondence between the semantics of SHOP2 and the situation calculus semantics of the Process Model, and implemented a system which soundly and completely plans over sets of DAML-S descriptions using a SHop2 planner, and then executes the resulting plans over the Web.
