Digital Preservation can sometimes seem more of an art than a science, how can preservation be automated in the real world?
Automation in digital preservation can sometimes be a controversial subject. How can we really automate such an imperfect and complicated process as digital preservation?
Following our recent panel session at the Society of American Archivists’ annual meeting, Dr Matthew Addis hosted a webinar to share his thoughts on the subject and exploring how preservation can be automated in the real world.
Top performing organisations trust Arkivum to manage their complex long-term data requirements
Arkivum Perpetua safeguards and preserves your valuable content for the long-term, bringing it to life by making it easily accessible and searchable for when you need it.
Museums, Galleries and Archives
The heritage industry has a big job on their hands to preserve history for future generations to access. Digitised assets need to be easily searchable and usable to create business value and digitised files need to be protected forever. Born-digital assets create a particular problem with evolving technology and long-term access, as software tools and applications are constantly evolving and being updated, which means there is often no guarantee for how long you can access your resources. Arkivum Perpetua addresses this issue by combining our fully managed service with Open Source software to ensure long-term access to your digital collections while guaranteeing 100% data integrity and the peace of mind of an out of the box solution.
Whether preserving archival collections or research data, Higher Education is data rich, presenting a unique challenge when it comes to preserving research data in order to comply with Research Council regulations. Arkivum Perpetua provides a safeguarded archive with discovery capabilities meaning you can access and analyse your valuable data for future research scenarios. The ability to easily integrate with institutional repositories and securely export your information makes collaboration effortless across your organisation.
Arkivum’s Perpetua will integrate with EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS) so that content can be seamlessly discovered and accessed across the combined solution. Perpetua supports the preservation, safeguarding and access of a wide range of content within an institution including special collections, scholarly outputs, teaching materials, organisational records and other materials that an institution might need to keep for the long-term. Through the integration with EDS, all content will be discoverable alongside other institutional resources and materials. This provides staff, researchers and students with a single place for finding and using valuable archival content.
