New "Filling the Digital Preservation Gap" report released

I am pleased to announce that we have just published a new report on the "Filling the Digital Preservation Gap" project.

Filling the Digital Preservation Gap. A Jisc Research Data Spring project. Phase Two report - February 2016 - Jenny Mitcham, Chris Awre, Julie Allinson, Richard Green, Simon Wilson.

This phase 2 report, funded through Jisc's Research Data Spring initiative, details the work the project team have carried out with Archivematica over the last few months of the project. 

Our phase 2 work had the following aims:
  • Work with Artefactual Systems to develop Archivematica in a number of areas in order to make the system more suitable for fitting into our infrastructures for research data management
  • Develop our own detailed implementation plans for Hull and York to establish how Archivematica will be incorporated into our local infrastructures for research data
  • Consider how Archivematica could work as an above campus installation
  • Continue to spread the word, both nationally and internationally, about the ongoing work of our project

Our work in all of these areas are detailed in the report in full. Please do download it and let us know what you think.

We very much hope that the new features we have sponsored within Archivematica will be of interest to other Archivematica users (both current and future) and that these features will continue to evolve and improve over time.

Jenny Mitcham, Digital Archivist
