The aim of this work package is to establish policies for the weblog repository that, on the one hand, promote the long-term preservation, maintainance, management and access of weblog digital content, and, on the other, protect the digital rights of weblog authors, publishers, and repositories. This work package includes three tasks:
Task 3.1. Development of a Preservation Strategy
The purpose of this task is to develop policies for digital preservation of weblogs, related objects, and metadata. This will include selecting metadata standards and encoding methods (e.g. METS,PREMIS), testing technical preservation strategies (e.g. migration,emulation) and ensuring that the data model of the resulting repository conforms to accepted archival standards (e.g. OAIS). The outcome of this task will be available as deliverable D3.1.Preservation Strategy Report.
Task 3.2. Assessment of Interoperability Prospects
In this task we will examine methods for maximising interoperability between the prospective weblog archive prototype and other existing repositories. We will also establish a route for the efficient transfer of data to other digital repositories in the case that dissemination or succession of archive holdings becomes necessary. The results of this task will be available as deliverable D3.2. Assessment of Interoperability Prospects.
Task 3.3. Development of the Digital Rights Policy
The aim of this task is to create a healthy digital rights policy for the use of weblog archives and its holdings, inclusive of regulations for the protection of authors’ intellectual rights, policies regardingliabilities, and access control with respect to different data type. The policies developed within this task will be published as deliverable D 3.3. Development of Digital Rights Policy.
