Hope you are all are enjoying these summer days. I have good news to share —
* July 18th call — cancel?
* August 15th call — be there!
* Fixity conversation — new distribution list.
The agenda for our August 15th call is shaping up nicely. As discussed at our last call, we’ve reached out to learn more about the OAIS Community Forum and the review of ISO14721. A big thanks to Andrea Goethals for taking the lead in proposing this topic for conversation, and for reaching out for more information. In fact, I think our conversation will be very interesting -- Paul Wheatley from DPC will join us to talk about the OAIS Community Forum effort, and Dr. Bob Downs from Columbia University (and a member of the CCSDS-DAI WG) will talk about the review of ISO14721.
I have not heard any proposals for Agenda items for our July 18th call, and it’s reminded me that quite likely some of you are on vacation anyway. I’m not, but I will be away at IU and would welcome a recess from this months call. So, I propose to cancel the July 18th call unless someone else would like to coordinate an agenda or discussion. You might keep this time set aside to review the OAIS Community Forum<http://wiki.dpconline.org/index.php?title=About_the_OAIS_Community_Forum> wiki.
Finally, we’ve made good progress with the joint NDSA Standards & Practices + Infrastructure reconstitution of the past Fixity conversations. A joint-call with members from both groups took place on 5/31/16 and we had excellent conversation on taking additional steps to advance the Checking Your Digital Content<http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/documents/NDSA-Fixity-Guidance-Report-final100214.pdf> report (the result of a prior collaboration). At the present a survey is proposed in order to gather more details on the actual practices that organizations are employing to monitor fixity. The delay, which I apologize for as that fell on me, surrounded “how should we coordinate” and on that matter we’ve had good conversation about the new NDSA structure which proposes distinguishing Working Groups from Interest Groups. Therefore, this topic will advance as the first NDSA Working Group and we have set up a distribution list to support this coordinated effort. We’ll be sure to report back to both the S&P and Infrastructure interest groups, keeping everyone in the loop. Therefore, if you would like to join the new FIXITY distribution list with the intent of participating in some of the work involved with creating a survey around implementation of Fixity, please drop me a line and I will send your name along to our contact at DLF.
