1 Digital Preservation Process or Outcome? or What Hath NLNZ Wrought? Joseph Shubitowski IGeLU 2008, September 9, 2008

2 First A Word of Thanks! NLNZ are driving force for preservation –Evangelism works! Made vendors take notice –Hardware and software Sustainability is key IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

3 “Over the past few weeks I have become acutely aware that the term “digital preservation” may be becoming a problem in the digital domain, we should be selling the outcomes. While we have to use "digital preservation" in appropriate contexts, including technical and other in-house discussions, and digital curation is appropriate in other contexts, terms that reflect the outcomes are more persuasive. So I would argue that outcome-related phrases like "long term accessibility" or "usability over time" are better than the process-oriented phrase "digital preservation". Chris Rusbridge, Digital Curation Blog, July 29, 2008 IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

4 Assumptions & Perceptions Constituencies already depend on library for analog conservation & preservation Do user communities even perceive a digital preservation crisis? Usability is key no matter if analog or digital Keep stuff accessible –Users/public don’t care about the details IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

5 Sustainability (Big Picture) Policies are everything –Assessment and preservation strategies and workflows are all based on policy –Technical solutions complement policy – not shape it Mandates –Participation in digital preservation programs/workflows cannot be optional IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

6 Sustainability (Technology) Internal –Will you continue to have the funding, staff, and technical resources? Community based and/or OSS –What will you or your intended solution depend on the community to produce and support? Vendor supplied/supported –Will my vendor be around to complete and support what we started together? IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

7 Dependencies National and international standards and collaborations –Policies: OAIS, NDIIPP, PLANETS –Metadata: PREMIS, METS –Registries: GDFR, PRONOM Tools and plug-ins –JHOVE, DROID, NLNZ Indigo, MET, & Web Curator, AONS Hardware –Disk, tape, content addressable storage, grid solutions Budget! IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

8 Interoperability Internal platforms –Who makes it all work together? Community/constituencies –How will standards, tools, registries, etc. continue to develop and converge/diverge? Trustedness? –Testing and certification – who decides? Interchangeability of preservation objects? –How will systems and/or institutions agree on authenticity of digital objects IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

9 Assurance How do we know we’re on the right track? –Policy and repository assessment NARA/OCLC/CRL: TRAC:CC JISC/DCC: DRAMBORA –National/international programs EU: DPE, DPC, PLANETS, CASPAR, nestor USA: NDIIPP, NARA Directives New Zealand: NDHA Australia: PADI –Community forums/idea sharing JISC, DPE, DPC, Library of Congress, NISO, etc. etc. sponsored conferences and forums iPRES conferences PASIG and other vendor sponsored groups Groups like ELUNA and IGeLU IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008

10 Just my thoughts Thanks IGeLU Conference 2008, September 9, 2008
