Preserving Access to Government Websites: Development and Practice in the CyberCemetery
This paper discusses the development and practice in the CyberCemetery. In the late 1990's, online U.S. government information was appearing and disappearing at a rapid pace. In 1999, the University of North Texas Libraries (UNT) formed a partnership with the U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) to address this issue by archiving electronic government websites. This archive, known as the CyberCemetery, provides permanent public access to the websites and publications of defunct U.S. government agencies and commissions. This partnership between UNT and GPO has expanded to include the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). This paper covers the CyberCemetery's development and the process of identifying, capturing, and publishing content in the archive. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc67623/

Transport Neutral Digital Object Replication
This paper discusses digital object replication. The University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries has implemented a simple transport neutral digital object replication strategy in its production digital repository infrastructure. This strategy is built with the same ideals as other Curation Micro-Services, in respect to lightweight, software independent specifications coupled to provide a set of services for digital repositories, this approach to replication has allowed the UNT Libraries the flexibility of multiple storage infrastructures and the reassurance that objects are being fully validated as they are replicated throughout the repository. Building on standard Web technologies and methodologies like the Atom Publishing Protocol and REST, coupled with digital library technologies such as Checkm and BagIt, a transport neutral replication strategy allows institutions to meet the increasing demands on their services while keeping the overall costs low by allowing the use of a variety of storage platforms. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc36293/
