Co-operative Development of a Long-Term Digital Information Archives (KOPAL)
This German project involves the co-operative development of a long-term digital information archive by the German National Library, Göttingen State and University Library, Society for Scientific Data Processing mbH Göttingen (GWDG) and IBM Germany.

Creative Archiving at Michigan & Leeds: Emulating the Old on the New (CAMiLEON)
The CAMiLEON Project is developing and evaluating a range of technical strategies for the long term preservation of digital materials. User evaluation studies and a preservation cost analysis are providing answers as to when and where these strategies will be used. The project is a joint undertaking between the Universities of Michigan (USA) and Leeds (UK) and is funded by JISC and NSF.

Cultural, Artistic and Scientific knowledge for Preservation, Access and Retrieval (CASPAR)
CASPAR is an Integrated Project co-financed by the European Union within the Sixth Framework Programme (Priority IST-2005-2.5.10, "Access to and preservation of cultural and scientific resources").

CASPAR intends to:

  • Implement, extend, and validate the OAIS reference model (ISO:14721:2003)

  • Enhance the techniques for capturing Representation Information and other preservation related information for content objects.

  • Design virtualisation services supporting long term digital resource preservation, despite changes in the underlying computing (hardware and software) and storage systems, and the Designated Communities.

  • Integrate digital rights management, authentication, and accreditation as standard features of CASPAR.

  • Research more sophisticated access to and use of preserved digital resources including intuitive query and browsing mechanisms.

  • Develop case studies to validate the CASPAR approach to digital resource preservation across different user communities and assess the conditions for a successful replication.

  • Actively contribute to the relevant standardisation activities in areas addressed by CASPAR.

  • Raise awareness about the critical importance of digital preservation among the relevant user-communities and facilitate the emergence of a more diverse offer of systems and services for preservation of digital resources.

CURL Exemplars in Digital Archives (Cedars)
Cedars began in April 1998 and will end in March 2002. Its broad objective is to explore digital preservation issues. These range through acquiring digital objects, their long-term retention, sufficient description, and eventual access.

Electronic Resource and Preservation Access Network (ERPANET)
The European Commission funded ERPANET Project will establish an expandable European Consortium, which will make viable and visible information, best practice and skills development in the area of digital preservation of cultural heritage and scientific objects. ERPANET will bring together memory organisations (museums, libraries and archives), ICT and software industry, research institutions, government organisations (including local ones), entertainment and creative industries, and commercial sectors (including for example pharmaceuticals, petro-chemical, and financial). The dominant feature of ERPANET will be the provision of a virtual clearinghouse and knowledge-base on state-of-the-art developments in digital preservation and the transfer of that expertise among individuals and institutions.

Institutional Records Management and E-mail (Loughborough University)
This was a project funded by JISC under the Supporting Institutional Records Management programme.

The business of H.E. / F.E. institutions is increasingly transacted by e-mail, and the management and preservation of stored e-mail is an important part of an institution's records management process. This project is a case study of practices at Loughborough with outcomes expected to be widely applicable elsewhere. It has developed policies for retention and disposal of e-mail, examined current and possible practices for dealing with e-mail at a corporate, department, or group level rather than a personal level, and evaluated various technical options for archiving e-mail in line with the policies and legal requirements.

The project ran from May to October 2003.

The Preservation of the Integrity of Electronic Records (UBC Project)
Using the principles of archival science and diplomatics as a foundation, the "UBC Project" defined the requirements for creating, handling and preserving reliable and authentic electronic records in active recordkeeping systems. As its second phase, the InterPARES Project will apply the diplomatic and modeling methodology of the UBC Project to develop the theoretical and methodological knowledge required for the preservation of the integrity of inactive records created in electronic systems.

Preserving the Records of the E-Legislature (Minnesota Historical Society)
In April 2005, the Minnesota Historical Society, the Office of the Revisor of Statutes, and the Legislative Reference Library launched a project to explore and test the technologies available to preserve the electronic records of the Minnesota legislature. The project is funded by a grant of $264,000 from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an agency of the federal government. The partners will receive technological help and services from the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and staff from the California State Archives, State Library, and Legislative Counsel will evaluate the project for adoption in their state.

Significant Properties (InSPECT) project (Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS))
The InSPECT (Investigating the Significant Properties of Electronic Content Over Time) project was funded by JISC between March 2007 and March 2009 under the Repositories and Preservation programme. It was led by the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) Executive until its demise in March 2008, and then by the Centre for e-Research (CeRch) at Kings College London. CeRch was assisted by project partners at The National Archives (TNA).

The InSPECT project utilised design methods to identify the functions performed by an Object in its current manifestation and evaluate if they are required by other stakeholders. It adapted the Function-Behaviour-Structure (FBS) framework, a framework developed by John Gero to assist engineers and designers with the process of creating and re-engineering systems. By considering the purpose of the object in conjunction with the stakeholder that uses it, an auditor may determine the functionality and, by extension the properties, that are necessary to maintain over time. By focussing upon the properties that are essential, the institution may adopt a preservation strategy that is faster, simpler to perform and less costly than alternative strategies that maintain all elements of the object.

Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS)
The Victorian Electronic Records Strategy (VERS) has been developed by Public Record Office Victoria [Australia] to help Victorian government agencies manage, store and access their electronic records, and to ensure that Victoria’s key electronic information will be identified, preserved and accessible in the future, regardless of how it was created.
