1 Behind the Screen: Successfully Managing Content for Delivery Greg Colati University of Denver National Archives Preservation Conference March, 2009

2 The Tip of the Iceberg Delivery systems, or what we are now starting to call “presentation layers,” are the most visible part of a digital library or archive. But they are just a small part of the overall system. March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference

3 A Sample Digital Collections System March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference Staples, Thornton, Ross Wayland and Sandra Payette, "The Fedora Project: An Open- source Digital Object Repository System, " D-LIb Magazine, April Management Storage Access Presentation

4 A DELIVERY SYSTEM BEGINS WITH RESOURCES … March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference

5 Characteristics The characteristics of a digital object are dependent on the relationships among capture factors, on post-processing decisions, and metadata. ◦ Imaging resolution/depth ◦ Audio/video sample rate, quantization ◦ OCR accuracy ◦ Post-capture clean-up and manipulation ◦ Metadata schemas and choices March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference

6 Digital Capture and Reusability March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference Capture for a single use Capture for many uses If you capture at the best quality that you can afford now, you end up with more options later

7 The Wide World of Metadata Metadata and Metadata Schemas are often specific to a community or a content type/format A sample list…. MARC, MODS, DC, OAI- DC, DACS, AACR2, RAD, CCO, VRA, ETDMS, METS, RSS, FOAF, IEEE LOM, SKOS, TEI, EAD, GILS, IMS, MIX, MIC, MADS, AAT, LCSH, SportsML, TGN, EDNA, VERS, PBCore, IPTC, XMP, CDWA, TIGER, CLiMB, CeLeBraTe, JHove… March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference Image: NASA

8 Metadata is Eternal! Metadata maintenance is perpetual To conform to emerging standards To adjust to new technical environments To add functionality and interoperability March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference Applications will come and go; metadata lives on!

9 …MOVES THROUGH THE MANAGEMENT LAYER… March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference

10 Objects and Collections Context First: archives are managed at the “collection” level and move though a hierarchy to deeper levels of detail. Context Second: digital objects are managed at the “item” or atomistic level and aggregated into collections through attributes March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference

11 Management MYTH “If only we had (fill in the blank)* everything would be fine” March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference * Fedora, DSpace, CONTENTdm, Insight, Filemaker Pro, MSAccess, Greenstone, Keystone, PINES, Koha, VuFind, DLXS, Documentum, Cumulus, Artesia, Rediscovery, Minisis, PastPerfect, a really big pad of paper, etc…

12 Management Reality Just having (fill in the blank)* is not enough No one system will ◦ Manage digital objects and metadata ◦ Provide public access ◦ Permit easy re-purposing ◦ Preserve digital assets ◦ Apply Manage policies ◦ Make Quality choices ◦ Determine Access controls March, 2009NARA Preservation Conference NO MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WILL MANAGE ITSELF!
