Notes

Abstract: This paper will examine ongoing work between two major preservation systems, the Chronopolis Digital Preservation Program, and the MetaArchive Cooperative. In the past year, these two systems have begun work on bridging their technical underpinnings to create a more robust, reliable, long-lived preservation community for their users. The main emphasis of this work is moving data between a LOCKSS-based system (MetaArchive) and an iRODS-based one (Chronopolis). This work also involves several other emerging preservation micro-service tools and practices, and the expertise of the University of North Texas (UNT) Digital Library in deploying them. The final result of this work is intended to be of three-fold benefit: 1) directly improving the services offered by Chronopolis and MetaArchive to their constituents; 2) offering specific technical findings which will be of benefit to other systems using LOCKSS and iRODS; and 3) contributing to the larger preservation community through the examination of organizational best practices for preservation system interactions.
