The Florida Center for Library Automation is pleased to announce that 
DAITSS (Dark Archive in the Sunshine State) software is available under 
a GPL v 3 license.

DAITSS is a digital preservation repository application developed by the 
Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) with some support from the 
IMLS. DAITSS is used by the Florida Digital Archive, a long-term 
preservation repository service provided by FCLA for the use of the 
libraries of the eleven publicly-funded universities in Florida. 
Although DAITSS first went into production in 2005, it was recently 
re-architected and rewritten to improve ease of implementation and 
maintenance, scalability, and extensibility.

DAITSS provides automated support for the functions of Submission, 
Ingest, Archival Storage, Access, Withdrawal, and Repository 
Management.  It is architected as a set of RESTful Web Services and 
micro-services but enforces strict controls to ensure the integrity and 
authenticity of archived content. It implements active preservation 
strategies based on format-specific processing including, where 
necessary, normalization and forward migration.  It is particularly well 
suited for materials in text, document, image, audio and video formats.

DAITSS was written for a multi-user environment and supports consortial 
as well as institutional preservation repositories.

For more information, see   This website 
provides access to source code, an installation manual, and an 
operations manual.  For those who want an easy way to experiment with 
DAITSS without going through the trouble of a local installation,  a 
fully configured VM version of DAITSS can be downloaded to run in the 
VMWare Player.  A Quick Start Guide to the VM demo provides a brief 
walk-through of the most commonly performed operator functions.

The future's so bright, you gotta wear shades!
