Enduring Access to Rich Media Content: Understanding Use and Usability Requirements | D-Lib

Through an NEH-funded initiative, Cornell University Library is creating a technical, curatorial, and managerial framework for preserving access to complex born-digital new media objects. The Library's Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art provides the testbed for this project. This collection of complex interactive born-digital artworks are used by students, faculty, and artists from various disciplines. Interactive digital assets are far more complex to preserve and manage than single uniform digital media files.

Seeking Comment on Migration Checklist | The Signal

The NDSA Infrastructure Working Group’s goals are to identify and share emerging practices around the development and maintenance of tools and systems for the curation, preservation, storage, hosting, migration, and similar activities supporting the long term preservation of digital content.

The NDSA Levels of Digital Preservation and the Fixity document are examples of this.

Dataverse 4.0: Defining Data Publishing | Mercè Crosas

A Framework for Building a “Data Museum” | Cannon | International Journal of Digital Curation

In the current digital age, data are everywhere and are continually being created, collected and otherwise captured by a range of users for a variety of applications.

Selecting, collecting, preserving and archiving digital assets, especially research data sets, are important steps in the research life cycle and can help expand the boundaries of research by allowing data to be reused.

Development of a Cross Institutional Digital Repository

Through the expertise of many, we can leverage success for the collaborative was the guiding philosophy as members of the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries considered how we might utilize technology and software to join our digital collections enabling access to a wealth of collections. In 2013, members of the Alliance were struggling to develop and support digital collections in a variety of formats. Librarians were unsure how to handle video, photos, books, and learning objects that seemed to mushroom overnight with rising and uncontrolled costs.
