2 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Preservation services: the APARSEN approach Aim to characterise a set of services covering the spectrum of needs of digital preservation Examine what services already exist, are under development, or have potential for development Identify both general, infrastructure-type components as well as delimiting applicability of specific services and techniques Take into account requirements of different domains Services that perform or assist with preservation-related activities or operations

3 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Services as an aspect of sustainability Sustainability as one of the topics of digital preservation in APARSEN - Others are trust, usability, access What contributes to the ability of digital preservation systems to continue their existence into the future?

4 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN What do we mean by preservation services? A somewhat fuzzy definition, but some characteristics are: - Something that can be shared - Distinguished from a tool (partly …) - Could in principle be offered by an external party Do we include services carried out by people? (e.g. audit and certification)

5 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Some examples of services Registry/repository of representation information Authenticity evidence service Persistent identifier resolver Characterisation service Cloud storage service

6 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Key questions What services are needed for a sustainable infrastructure? Conversely, what service offerings already exist or are under development? How may they be delivered? Is there a common view on what services can be shared?

8 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Starting points for mapping services Long-Term Preservation Services: A description of LTP services in a Digital Library environment (by several national libraries)

9 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN What might organisations need in terms of preservation services? ? From Neil Grindley, JISC

10 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN How to classify services Two-dimensional classification seems reasonable - Type of data - Service function

11 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Mapping to the RAC standard ISO Audit and certification of trustworthy digital repositories Offers a detailed specification of criteria by which digital repositories may be audited A series of metrics under the following main headings: - Organizational Infrastructure - Digital Object Management - Infrastructure and Security Risk Management Each metric is accompanied by discussion and examples of how a repository can show it is meeting the requirement expressed in the metric

13 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Relation to other sustainability issues Storage solutions - … as a service Costs - … obviously depend on how activities are implemented Business cases - … likewise

14 Workshop on sustainability: Preservation services Simon Lambert, STFC IDCC, Amsterdam, 17 January 2013 Co-funded by the European Union under FP7-ICT aparsen.eu #APARSEN Discussion Does the two-sided approach to services make sense? (supply and demand) How could we map a landscape of services? Are there any services that seem not to be covered by this approach? What are your priorities for services?
