2013 State of the University Announcement

2009 Media Preservation Survey Findings
• More than 560,000 audio, video, and film objects are owned by
the Bloomington campus on more than 50 formats housed in
more than 80 units
• Actively degrading, obsolete formats, high risk of loss of content
over the next decade
• We have a 15- to 20-year window of opportunity to digitally
preserve audio and video holdings.

Batches: Format Based
22
Who?
• Many, many people throughout the
campus university
• On-the-ground coordinator of batch
preparation: Patrick Feaster, Media
Preservation Specialist
23
What and When?
• Memnon Bloomington Facility
•
•
•
•
Open Reel Tapes and LPs (start July 1)
Audiocassettes (start August/September)
VHS videotapes (start December)
Other formats: still being planned
• Memnon Belgium Facility
•
DAT tapes and CD-Rs (ship May 30)
• IU Facility
•
Still being planned
24
Where?
• Starting at William and Gayle Cook
Music Library and Archives of
Traditional Music
• Why these two?
•
•
Large enough to fill many batches (meet
initial deadlines)
Work through models of two different
sources of data: IUCAT and MediaScore
• Reaching out now out to other locations
for DATs, CD-R’s; later for other formats

MDPI Information Technology Challenges
• Tight timeline
• Large volumes of items and data
• Variety of metadata, content, potential
users
• Many issues of software and systems
• Close collaboration between UITS and
Library Technologies
28
Developing Workflow Tools
29
Workflow Support: POD
• Physical Object Database
• Support for tracking of objects and
construction of batches
• Populated from
MediaSCORE/MediaRIVERS and
IUCAT
• Ruby-on-Rails based web application
using MySql database
• Agile development process
30
Workflow Support: POD
31
Post-Digitization File Workflow
• Deposit on SDA
• Initial validation
• Quality control of files
• Automated
• Manual
• Transcoding
• Creation of SIP
• Submission Information Package
• Ingest into preservation and access
repositories
32
Metadata for Preservation and Access
• Descriptive
• From IUCAT when available
• Technical
• File and original object
characteristics
• Checksums
• Process History
• Digitization and preservation process
• Structural
• Support navigation within an object
33
Access Technology
•
•
•
Need to support access for both collection
managers and end users
Discovery
• IUCAT, Archives Online (EAD Finding
Aids), other environments?
Delivery
• Key requirements: usability,
reusability, access control,
performance
• Looking at Avalon Media System
34
Long-Term Preservation Technology
• 9 petabytes+ to be preserved
• Local storage
• UITS Scholarly Data Archive
• Fedora 4 repository layer
• Out-of-region storage
• APTrust, DPN
• Data swap agreements
