|As many of you
probably know, Stanford was involved in the Archive Ingest and Handling Test,
a project of NDIIPP in 2004-05.
LC, Harvard, Old Dominion, and Johns Hopkins to ingesting and disseminating
the 9/11 archive collected by George Mason Univ.
|That project has
been covered here at DLF forums in the past, and the Dec 2005 issue of D-Lib
Magazine was devoted to the subject. Official project reports are available
from the NDIIPP web site.
|So we are not here
to report on that project again.
|Nancy and I do want
to share with this audience some of the specifics on a methodology that our
team developed in the course of the AIHT project to automatically assess
files in a digital collection for risks associated with their long-term
preservation. Iíll be discussing the theory and concepts underlying the
method and walk through the process.
|NANCY will discuss
metadata implications of assessment process, how we recorded in METS using
PREMIS, discuss some of issues regarding managing metadata over time.
