This deliverable will define what constitutes significant environment information, supporting novel approaches for its collection and taking into account a wider scope of collectable information, to improve the information use and reuse, both in the present and in the future.
Digital objects (DOs) live in an environment containing a variety of information that can be relevant to their use. In order to take into account all the information needed, we take a very broad view on the DO environment, considering information from anywhere, at any time, and of any type. We recognise that some of the environment information external to the organisation in charge of the data could change or disappear at any given time. Collecting such information at creation and use time is thus very relevant for the preserving long-term use of the data.
