3 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report3 What is eContent? Products of digitisation of analogue materials Products of digital data creation –from scientific processes such as satellites, metrological monitoring, experiments etc. –as a part of business processes conducted in digital form –as a result of the use of digital technologies to create representations of the world (e.g. digital cameras)

4 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report4 eContent Supports e-commerce through e-content industries as well as----- Education Life-Long Learning Public Enjoyment

Kenney, Cornell University Reagan Moore, San Diego Super Computer Center

8 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report8 Meeting & The Agenda Meet 3 times (Paris (x1) & WDC (x2) Report in final stages we have released our summary findings as: –Digital Preservation and Archiving – Invest to Save

9 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report9 Key Message While acknowledging the value of many conventional archival principles, the Working Group concluded that the digital environment was reshaping the archival process to such an extent that it might, in the not too distant future, be unrecognisable. This change will require a paradigm shift in research if it is to provide the innovation, whether theoretical, methodological, or technical, necessary to underpin long-term access to digital resources. (from Report)

10 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report10 A New Focus Focus on delivering results in narrow domains Focus on tangible deliverables Have more emphasis on engineering and computing science Recognise that digital entities are the raw materials for industries of the 21 st century – intellectual capital.

11 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report11 Three Main Research Areas Emerging Research Domains Re-engineering Preservation Processes, and Preservation Systems and Technology. BUT….. –we note policy, organisational, educational and other activities that require research –we encourage regional and national takeup of the agenda

12 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report12 Emerging Research Domains Repositories Archival Media Salvage & Rescue –Digital Archaeologyrecovery –Digital Archaeologyanalysis Storage Abstractions Documentation of Functionality and Behaviour Self-Aware Digital Entities Accelerated Aging Intellectual Capital

13 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report13 Re-engineering Preservation Processes. Staging Intervention Automation of Process Detecting Trustworthiness and Information Quality Scalability Collection Completeness and Anomaly Detection Distributed and Grid Storage

14 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report14 Preservation of Systems and Technology. Preservation of Systems & Technology Managing Complex and Dynamic Digital Entities Automated Metadata Creation Long-term Metadata Viability Multilingual Entities and Technology Acceptable Loss Repurposing

15 © HATII, University of Glasgow Seamus Ross, Digital Preservation Research Opportunities, DELOS(EU)/NSF Report15 Core Topics three core research topics were likely to have the greatest impact: –self-aware (at least as far as context) objects, –metadata and the evolution of ontologies, and –mechanisms for preservation of complex and dynamic objects.
