Appendix A: Preservation Business Model
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. This appendix includes the 2010-2013 Strategic Plan which highlights the Educopia institute's strengths and achievements to date and details the strategic planning process. Specifically this strategic plan declares Educopia institute's: Mission statement, Vision, Three Critical Challenges, and Six Programmatic Goals (with objectives and strategies).
Appendix B: MetaArchive-SRB Transfer
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. This appendix document is a report on the status of a two-phase transfer test being carried out between the MetaArchive Cooperative and Chronopolis. These tests aim to demonstrate a proof-of-concept that the MetaArchive network may use Chronopolis's data grid preservation service as an exit strategy in the event that either MetaArchive or LOCKSS becomes unsustainable in the future.
Appendix C: MetaArchive-iRODS Transfer Prep
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. This appendix document describes the preparation of archival units residing on a LOCKSS file system that have been designated for packaging and exchange with a non-LOCKSS-based preservation environment-in this case an iRODS grid-based environment. This process was tested with the University of North Texas (UNT) and Chronopolis (SDSC). Further development would be needed to integrate packaging mechanisms for use with other non-iRODS environments. The packaging process is accomplished using a combination of content serving features enabled through the LOCKSS software, a custom script ("lockssbagger") developed by UNT, and BagIt (CDL-LOC) as the primary exchange mechanism. The lockssbagger tool is detailed in Appendix B.
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. This appendix document describes tools. These tools are designed to facilitate the transfer of data contained within a number of LOCKSS archival units and packaged into bags. The bags are then transferred to the iRODS grid. The user has the option of creating and sending filled bags, or holey bags. The primary tools are written in Python, and make use of the iRODS command line utilities for data transfer.
Appendix E: MetaArchive-iRODS Transfer
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. This appendix document describes an automation process that involved the sending of a Folger Shakespeare Library collection (246 archival units measuring 1.3TB) hosted on a University of North Texas (UNT) LOCKSS cache to a storage resource hosted by Chronopolis at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). In order to transfer the content to the iRODS-based Chronopolis data grid, each archival unit needed to be extracted from the LOCKSS cache, and sent via use of the iRODS icommands client utilities. In addition, it was imperative to monitor the transfer at all possible points to detect corruption and make certain that the integrity of the data was maintained. Finally, for the purpose of benchmarking and information gathering, time-based statistics needed to be recorded for each stage of the transfer. These processes were managed by a set of Python-based scripts and utilities that are described in this document.
Appendix F: MetaArchive Microservices
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. The purpose of this document is to explain the PREMIS Event microservice as prototyped for the MetaArchive Cooperative, primarily from a developer's standpoint. The document will attempt to explain the purpose of the microservice, the underlying principles on which it operates, and a practical example of its usage. The MetaArchive has installed all of the components needed to deploy this microservice and looks forward to opportunities to experiment with practical implementations in future development projects.
Appendix G: Contingency Plan Outline
This is an appendix to the MetaArchive Final Report. In this appendix, the policy statements address the general requirements and procedures related to the enactment and handling of the MetaArchive Contingency Plan.
