DFG-Projekt: LuKII (LOCKSS und KOPAL Infrastruktur und Interoperabilität)



 Project Description (Projektbeschreibung):                                                 lukiilogo

Scholarly information today is mainly born digital and is increasingly made available through digital means. This makes effective long term digital preservation urgent for researchers in every field. Scholars know this is important, but generally assume that others, especially libraries, will address the problem. No simple solution exists. Multiple backups are a help, but do not address problems of integrity or authenticity or usability and older backups on tape are particularly vulnerable to physical or magnetic decay. Serious research on this topic has gone on for a decade with valuable tools such as LOCKSS and KOPAL as a result, but far more research remains to do. The problem of long term digital archiving is not solved, but becomes more solvable as the research moves forward. This project sets up a network infrastructure that takes an active step toward preserving bitstream integrity while ensuring readability, and then tests the product with materials from German institutional repositories.

Specifically this project proposes interoperability between the open-source elements of two existing archiving systems (LOCKSS and KOPAL) in order to combine cost-effective bitstream preservation with an established tool for usability maintenance and format migration.

Based on these goals the chief elements of this project are:

  1. to establish a cost-effective LOCKSS network in Germany including infrastructure to provide ongoing technical support and management for LOCKSS and its variants (e.g. CLOCKSS);
  2. to conceptualize and implement interoperability between LOCKSS and KOPAL in order to combine cost-effective bitstream preservation with well-developed usability preservation tools; and
  3. to test the interoperability prototype by archiving data from German institutional repositories.
