Presentation 1
Archivematica as a Service: a Cloud-based, Consortial Approach to Digital Preservation
The Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL) is piloting a cloud-based preservation service to its members using the Archivematica digital preservation system. The service is offered to COPPUL member institutions that wish to preserve digital holdings but find a hosted option preferable to installing and managing local Archivematica instances. This service is a joint effort of COPPUL, Artefactual Systems (Archivematica lead developers), and University of British Columbia (UBC) Library (the cloud storage provider). COPPUL is responsible for promoting the service, managing the partnership among COPPUL members, and seeding the one-time set-up costs. Artefactual Systems provides account administration, installation, server administration, and user technical support. UBC Library provides fee-based server hosting and digital object storage service. Our presentation will cover the service model generally, including infrastructure and governance, as well as the experience of the service users and providers to date. We will also discuss future directions and challenges and consider how other consortia may apply this model.

Presenters: Bronwen Sprout (University of British Columbia), Lisa Goddard (University of Victoria), Sarah Romkey (Artefactual Systems), Daniel Sifton (Vancouver Island University)

Presentation 2
Mind the Gap. Bridging Digital Libraries & Archives
The overarching goal of digital libraries and archives are similar - to foster the preservation of cultural assets, published or otherwise. Despite this common goal, the different tools, terminology, and approaches of libraries and archives can prevent librarians and archivists from collaborating. This presentation will highlight features of the open source Islandora framework that can help bridge the gap between digital libraries and archives, leveraging the strengths of both fields of expertise. The resulting rich ecosystem can provide an empowering approach to building user-centric collections that also achieve the goals of long term preservation.

The OAIS reference model creates a common thread for discourse, especially with the increasing adoption of the model in both communities. The model will be discussed in relation to its application for digital libraries and archives, including non-traditional areas such as research data management. Also, new tools are emerging to bring digital libraries and archives even closer together. The tools highlighted in this presentation will include 1) the Manuscript Solution Pack (facilitating the viewing of a high resolution image of a manuscript, TEI and EAD description), 2) Drexel EAD modules (facilitates ingest and display of EAD and child object), and 3) Archidora (an integration between Islandora and Archivematica), 4) Disk Image and WARC Solution Packs. Additional preservation features of the environment will be discussed, especially those that demonstrate the intersection with library and archival workflows.

The presentation will encourage leveraging existing knowledge bases and ecosystems for libraries and archives, working with the strengths of each, including standards, policies, workflows, and applications. Doing so will spur new developments that benefit both digital libraries and archives.
