This paper describes the Stanford Digital Repository (SDR), a large scale, digital preservation system for scholarly materials. It examines the lessons learned through over five years of development and operational experience.

Preserving Virtual Worlds

Interactive media are highly complex and at high risk for loss as technologies rapidly become obsolete. The Preserving Virtual Worlds project will explore methods for preserving digital games and interactive fiction. Major activities will include developing basic standards for metadata and content representation and conducting a series of archiving case studies for early video games, electronic literature and Second Life, an interactive multiplayer game.

GAip (Gloucestershire Archives ingest packager) is a proof of concept demonstration system written in perl. It provides archivists and others with the means to, 1. ingest a digital object and create the associated Archival Information Package (AIP), 2. compile metadata for the digital object which is included in the AIP, and 3. create Dissemination Information Packages from AIPs in order to provide access to the ingested digital object. GAip operates by way of a graphical user interface.
