2011 (English)In: eChallenges e2011 Conference Proceedings / [ed] Paul Cunningham; Miriam Cunningham, IIMC International Information Management Corporation , 2011Conference paper (Other academic)
Websites constitute one category of official records and as such should be preserved for the long term in compliance with Swedish legislation. Collaborative Archiving Services Testbed (CAST) supports actors involved in the selective web archiving process, from harvesting to the creation of an information package ready for transfer to a long-term archive at National Archives of Sweden. CAST is developed in compliance with the ISO standards Open Archival Information System (OAIS) and Producer-Archive Interface Methodology Abstract Standard (PAIMAS), and do also consider other well-known and established standards and recommendations in digital preservation area. CAST promotes cooperation, knowledge acquisition and sharing among users in an experimental step-by-step workflow, encouraging a proactive approach resulting in authority websites better adapted to digital preservation recommendations. CAST is developed at LDP Centre, a national competence centre in Sweden, within the digital preservation area.
