BitCurator workshop – Digital Forensics at Tate

Last year I attended a talk at Digital Humanities 2013 about the BitCurator project, which is developing a software environment to support the use of digital forensics techniques for analysing born-digital content by archivists, librarians, and other practitioners in memory institutions. We are investigating forensics approaches in PERICLES, in particular in the context of the various forms of born-digital content collected by...

Introducing Significant Environment Information and the PERICLES Extraction Tool

Good news everyone: The PERICLES Extraction Tool (PET) has been set free! PET is a framework for the extraction of information from the creation and use environments of digital data. PET works outside the established metadata perspectives and their firm structures by monitoring and collecting information from the whole system environment during the use of data. It extracts scenario related information, which increases the data...

PERICLES workshop on “Automated capture of the environment in a sheer curation context”

PERICLES joined the 10 th International Digital Curation Conference with a half day workshop on ‘Automated capture of the environment in a sheer curation context’ on February 11, 2015 at 30 Euston Square, London, UK. The aim of the workshop was to disseminate current outputs to people tasked with all aspects of long-term use of data. In addition, it was an opportunity to engage with IDCC delegates on current project...

Another successful work meeting on ontologies

The Centre for Research & Technology, Hellas (CERTH) hosted our fourth technical workshop on the Linked Resource Model (LRM), the LRM service, domain ontologies, ecosystem model and policies. The workshop took place in Thessaloniki, Greece, on 28-30 July 2015 (see the other blog entries of the past meetings [1] [2] [3] ). The LRM provides the concepts and languages for the other models, such as primarily the...

October workshops: Introducing experts to key PERICLES concepts

Last month PERICLES ran two workshops with practitioners and experts in the fields of digital preservation and science data. The full-day events were organised at two different locations, London (15 October) and Brussels (29 October) to introduce specific topics that are key elements within PERICLES research and development. The first workshop entitled 'Model-driven approach to preservation management' was focussed on the...

Toward the integration of emulation and virtualization strategies into the conservation of software-based art collections

Part of PERICLES core mission is finding ways to manage the challenges posed by the changing technical environments of complex digital content. For software-based artworks, obsolescence of the original technical platform and the resulting need to migrate the work to a new one, can result in inaccurate performance of the work, or at worst, render it completely inaccessible. Emulation and virtualization techniques offer potential...

Art & Media - Media Production Scenario

Commissioning to Preservation Ingest and Re-use Tate has its own media production unit, Tate Media, which produces a large volume of audio-visual content. This content aims to increase access to Tate’s collection and exhibitions, and contributes to Tate’s core mission of increasing public understanding and enjoyment of British, modern and contemporary art. The content is published online via the Tate Channel:...

Art & Media - Software-Based Art Scenario

Long-term display and the potential for virtualization of an artwork Tate define Software-Based Artwork as any for which software is the core medium. The first acquisition of a Software-Based Artwork (SBA) took place in 2003, with Michael Craig-Martin’s Becoming (2003) and currently there are eight SBAs in Tate’s collection and one in the process of being acquired. The number of works acquired is increasing slowly but...

Art & Media - Born Digital Archive scenario

Acquisition of a born-digital archive collection Tate Archive acquires material on British art from 1900. Our aim is to document the British art world in a broad sense, and we collect material relating to artists as well as other art world figures and institutions such as critics, curators and galleries. The Archive contains a wide range of different types of material, including correspondence, writings, diaries, notebooks,...

The PERICLES Extraction Tool: Significant Environment Information Collection to Support Object Reuse - D-Lib magazine

This article on the PERICLES Extraction Tool was published in the January/February 2015 issue of D-Lib magazine, an electronic publication with a focus on digital library research and development, including new technologies, applications, and contextual social and economic issues. http://www.dlib.org/dlib/january15/01inbrief.html

Taking a long-term perspective - Maintaining digital assets by managing their evolving digital ecosystems

As digital content and its related metadata are generated and used across different phases of the information lifecycle, and in a continually evolving digital environment, the concept of a fixed and stable ‘final’ version that needs to be preserved becomes less appropriate. As well as dealing with technological change and obsolescence, long-term sustainability requires us to address changes in context. Such a changing...

PERICLES – Digital Preservation through Management of Change in Evolving Ecosystems - EPS book

This paper is based on work of the EU FP7 PERICLES project on digital preservation, and presents some general concepts including the modelling of digital ecosystems, in which abstract representations are used to assess risks to sustainability and support tasks such as appraisal. The paper also offers a description of selected research areas investigated by the project. The paper has been published in the EPS book “The Success of...
