Presentation Abstract

The Digital Collections and Archives, Tufts University, in conjunction with Manuscripts and Archives of Yale University Library, is currently working on a NHPRC electronic records research grant to synthesize electronic records preservation research with digital library repository technology to develop systems capable of preserving university electronic records. This project is testing the potential of Fedora (the Flexible Extensible Digital Object and Repository Architecture) to serve as the architecture for such a system.

This session will focus on the preliminary but critical steps of the project: The project’s synthesis of recordkeeping system requirements appropriate for an academic institution and the project’s analysis and development of requirements for a preservation system in a college or university setting. The presenters will also discuss the applicability of these requirements to grant administration records, research data, and research publications and how willing each community—grant administrators, faculty, and librarians—would be to embrace these requirements.
