once again a q for the av & md folk: is there a (standardized) md schema to capture film conservation analysis for factors like shrinkage, curling, vinegar syndrome, etc.?
sort of looking for a event-like md container where we can describe date & outcome of analysis

the code of conduct for ipres2018 is now available on the ipres site at ipres2018.org/code-of-conduct and has also been added to github.com/digital-preservatio . Please let the organizing team know, if you have any feedback!

"how does deal with fmt/unknowns and multiple fmt hits". @justinsimpson - multi-hits are fmt/unkown per config, for fmt/unkoen default characteristaion fule is FITS. if we do know the format, better tools are used as per format rule configs

user observation at "to me as an archivist, very unclear when i should use tools - your doing stuff but there is no guidance - it's like you should already know." IMO this is another general problem.

the dashboard is the user interface to the pipeline and the place to make human-based decisions on processes, object treatment

Various ways to deploy , e.g. via redhat/CentOS, ubuntu package managers or via docker containers. Docker container deployment currently used by JISC for rdm repositories, says @justinsimpson@twitter

storage service = abstraction layer to deal with different forms of storage systems, so workflows can function without knowing details about storage system attached (e.g., Amazon S3, DuraCloud, ...)

Glimpse into just some of the FOSS tools wraps in micro-services: AtoM, ClamAV, Django, ExifTool, Ffmpeg, FFprobe, Fido, FITS, German, Imagemagick, Inkscape, JHOVE, Md5deep, Mediaconch, Mediainfo, NFS-common, p7zip, Siegfried, Slethkt, Tesseract

McLellan on as a community project: "Archivematica is what a bunch of different institutions think digital preservation should do, rolled out into a software, mediated by us. one of the key features is being public about the development process, allowing for wide feedback"

McLellan - "a trusted digital repository is about much more than creating AIPs and using them. ... it's about how you are using the system and the people and processes you have in place" YUP. don't let vendors tell you they are selling a TDR

McLellan talks about an IMO crucial sys req - important design aspect of is transparent AIPs, i.e. it's possible to blow away archivematica and still have access to your AIP.

simplified workflow: ingest -> verify -> identify -> characterize -> arrange -> normalise (for archival but also for access) -> describe -> package (as AIP and DIP)

archivematica is not a repository / storage system, it's a factory to create AIPs, from there they can be stored in e.g. amazon s3, duracloud, arkivum, microsoft azure, lockss, openstack, ovh, ....

forgot to mention - i'm at , Archivematica's User Camp in Amsterdam, for the next three days and will be tweeting&tooting from there. and .. oh yeah ... they got socks! <3


Evelyn McLellan kicks off the right way, mentioning that digital preservation is not just about software and hardware, it's about organization as well - can it therefore ever be solved?

global spread of development peeps with @archivematica - spain / germany / canada.

big fan of community steered sw dev. i have plenty of experience with in that regard, where customers get to co-shape the roadmap via working groups. really looking forward to to start in an hour to see how this works in FOSS tools like !
