Beyond the Repository: Exploring Integration Between Local and Distributed Digital Preservation Systems
Laura Alagna(1), Sibyl Schaefer(2), Brendan Quinn(1)
1: Northwestern University, United States of America; 2: University of California San Diego, United States of America
Northwestern and UCSD were awarded an IMLS Grant to explore integration between local repositories and distributed digital preservation systems.

Part of a Greater Whole: Fedora as a Key Component of a Digital Preservation Strategy
David Wilcox
DuraSpace, Canada
No single system can solve digital preservation for all, so a modular approach provides the greatest flexibility. This presentation will provide an overview of the challenges of architecting a preservation strategy, and describe how the Fedora community responded by focusing on importing and exporting data in standardized ways.
Digital Preservation Storage Criteria: Community Document for Discussion
Gail Truman(1), Sibyl Schaefer(2), Jane Mandelbaum(3), Kate Zwaard(3), Nancy McGovern(4), Andrea Goethals(5), Steve Knight(6)

Institutions responsible for preserving digital content must use storage systems or services to perform their work. The Digital Preservation Storage Criteria document was developed to assist in this decision making process. This talk provides an overview of the development of the document, followed by a discussions session to gather feedback.
