Concise preservation by combining managed forgetting and contextualization remembering
2013 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
This report covers a systematic study of existing research literature on smooth bi-directional preservation transition between producers system (active system) and a Synergetic Preservation system. This transition is meant to be as transparent as possible to the user, and also be able to fetch material from the preservation system in a smooth way. The report also includes a study on gaps that could be identified from existing research and what this integration would need to cover, and how it conceptually could work in Content Management Systems (use case: Typo3) and Personal Information Management (use case: Semantic Desktop / PIMO). The report groups activities into three high-level workflows; Preservation planning and administration, Preservation, and Access and retrieval. In these workflows, the contextual preservation administration, which link the preservation and storage services to particular information systems and maintains the contextualized preservation and access workflows, interfaces and ontologies, is something that needs further development during the project, since it includes many of the project specific peculiarities. This also goes for the other components of the middleware, which also are contextually aware, and part of the "forgetting" approach. Both workshop results and the literature review shows that integration of these workflows with the producing workflows should be done in a way that makes it low-effort, generic, and transparent – which goes well together with what the project set out to do. Most likely some sort of automatic appraisal needs to take place already in the producing systems, and the challenge here would be to make it non-intrusive but effective. The ideas and results from this report will serve as a starting point for design and integration that will take place in WP5 of the ForgetIT project, in particular for T5.2 and T5.3 as well as D5.2. The ideas in this report are however not strict rules to be followed, and may be altered or improved as work continues in above mentioned tasks. Any such actions will be reflected in D5.2 or subsequent reports.
