Workshop on Preservation Policy-based Infrastructure for Digital Library Research Environments
Thursday, June 16th, 1:30-4:45
The ACM/IEEE Joint Conference for Digital Libraries (JCDL)
Ottawa, Canada

Digital libraries provide scholars with the opportunity to conduct research in new research environments. Supporting evolving technologies, scholarship needs, and research requirements over the long term requires an efficient, flexible underlying infrastructure. The institutional support of such endeavors relies on the development of efficient data management policies which ensure trustworthiness and govern sustainability by attending to preservation components.

In conjunction with the ACM/IEEE Joint Conference for Digital Libraries, we are hosting a half-day workshop that explores both the practical and philosophical challenges at play in developing policy-based preservation infrastructures for digital library research environments. Our workshop will showcase approaches from different institutions, demonstrating successful models and practical approaches to policy development and automation.

Scheduled topics include:
• Practical approaches for policy development
• Mapping policies into machine-actionable rules
• Policy enforcement infrastructure and integration: The view from Fedora, DuraCloud, and Data Conservancy projects
• Linked data and interoperability for the digital library community. What institutional policies are needed for supporting data exchange over the long term? How can we collaborate on research environments across institutions?
