Webinar: Long-term preservation with dArceo


Multiple cultural heritage institutions in Poland are involved in digitization activities, building together a network of over 100 Polish digital libraries, and making over 2 million of digital objects accessible on-line ( Since 1999 PSNC R&D centre (located in Poznan, Poland) has been supporting these activities with innovative technologies related to digitisation, metadata aggregation or ground truth production. One of the results, strictly related to digitisation activities, is a “Digitise and Go” (DInGO, toolset composed of on-line access systems (dLibra or dMuseion), digitisation workflow management system (dLab) and long-term preservation system (dArceo).

This webinar will give an overview of the DInGO toolset with a special focus on dArceo long-term preservation tool, including its main features, general architecture and production-mode case studies. The ultimate goal of dArceo is to assure long-term preservation of master files using OAIS transformation approach (migration). dArceo runs in a service mode manner to provide simple way for integration with external systems (e.g. digitisation workflow management). To preserve data dAarceo uses many already available preservation tools (e.g. FITS, DROID, UDFR, ffmpeg, JHOVE) and well-known formats (e.g. METS, PREMIS, MIX, AES57, TextMD). There are already several production mode deployments of dArceo in Poland, including very small institutions, universities as well as large consortia. dArceo code-base was initiated within the framework of a national project funded by the Polish National Centre for Research and Development. PSNC is currently in the process of releasing dArceo open-souce.
