EPIC (Evaluating Plato in Cambridge)

EPIC is a six month JISC funded project ( February to July 2011) which will investigate ways of improving the preservation services currently provided with DSpace@Cambridge    http://www.dspace.cam.ac.uk/

DSpace@Cambridge is the University’s institutional repository – a  service providing a digital archive for scholarly publications and materials produced by the members of the University of Cambridge.

A key activity of the project will be to explore the feasibility of using Plato and associated Planets tools for preservation planning and relevant preservation activities. It will identify a small number of deposited collections that are at risk and use Plato to investigate preservation options and develop plans for them.

In order to inform the planning and to evaluate the results the project team will engage with user communities,seeking to capture their understanding of the significant properties which must be preserved. While the focus of the project is on preservation planning, we expect to carry out preservation actions on some collections. In other cases experiments will be conducted to identify potential future actions.
