Automated Quality Assurance in Digital Preservation Service Architecture

Our national digital preservation repository, based on the OAIS reference model, provides services for preserving the cultural heritage and research data funded by the Ministry of Education
and Culture of Finland. Currently, we have more than one million Archival Information Packages (AIPs) in preservation, which amounts to more than 100 terabytes. Eventually, our preservation solution will provide national services to potentially hundreds of partners and is scalable to dozens of petabytes of preserved data. To achieve this efficiently, we have developed an extensible preservation service architecture including automated quality assurance. In this poster, we concentrate on pre-ingest and ingest processes including modular file format validation
adaptable for example technological changes.

I-Media-Cities – Innovative e-environments for Research on Cities and the Media

I-Media-Cities is an ambitious and innovative research project led by 9 European cultural institutions (film and audiovisual archives from 8 countries), to share, provide access to, and use their digital content, turning it into the lever of novel approaches to multidisciplinary research, to business innovation and to the overall accessibility of the European cultural heritage. As an experimental innovation action, the project focuses on the digital content that refers to cities. I-Media-Cities strives to be a cross-border, cross-language platform for the study of the history and urban development of large EU cities through large media collections previously non accessible, and the study of the history of Media through the way they depicted urban spaces. I-Media-Cities would not be possible without the funding of the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.
