Preservation Planning Support decision-making about digital preservation including Identify and analyse the organisational context including a risk assessment define a framework for preservation / policy Identifying criteria for preservation within that context Defining workflow for evaluating/ defining preservation plans Developing methodologies for assessing the risks of applying different preservation strategies for different types of digital objects Enable formulation, evaluation and execution of high-quality and cost-effective preservation plans that suit the organisational needs Support the on-going evaluation of the results of executing preservation plans and provide a feedback mechanism Document the planning process decisions carefully accountability and building knowledge base

Support decision-making about digital preservation including

Identify and analyse the organisational context

including a risk assessment

define a framework for preservation / policy

Preservation Action Tools registry

XML language for describing preservation action tools

File/Content characterisation Characterise content to support preservation Reduce up-front metadata costs E.g., Harvard segmented images based on tool parameters Build on TNAs PRONOM for file-format identification Define a characterisation language (XCDL) Define an extraction language (XCEL) Define an pluggable interpreter Extend to measure loss due to actions All transformations cause loss Comparator verifies effects of preservation actions Leverage understanding to improve file formats Address a root cause of digital obsolescence
