Are you actively developing digital curation workflows? Are you working with or are you curious about working with BitCurator, Archivematica, and/or ArchivesSpace? Are you interested in learning more about the tools and procedures that your digital curation colleagues are implementing locally?
The OSSArcFlow: Researching Archival Workflows for Born-Digital Content project is a two-year effort funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to investigate, model, and test workflows for born-digital content curation in libraries and archives.
To receive OSSArcFlow project updates, share your workflow challenges and successes, and provide feedback on project documentation and guides, sign up for the OSSArcFlow list by visiting https://groups.google.com/a/educopia.org/d/forum/ossarcflow_public or emailing me at jessica[at]educopia[dot]org
Educopia Institute, in collaboration with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science (UNC SILS), LYRASIS, and Artefactual, Inc. will
Document partner institutions’ workflows
Develop specific methods and scripts to facilitate the flexible synchronization of archival OSS systems by a variety of collecting institutions
Create and publish training modules and guides that will promote the use of the OSS workflow documentation and scripts
These activities will catalyze efforts across the library and archives fields by:
Documenting ways in which institutions of different types and sizes integrate digital curation tools into their workflows
Informing our understanding of curation approaches and priorities, and how those impact the use of digital curation tools and capabilities
Supporting more efficient and effective digital curation programs that ensure ongoing access to our increasingly born-digital legacy
Thank you for your time, and we look forward to engaging with you throughout the project!
