  • repositories preservation infrastructure interoperability
  •  
  • Interoperability - a wider view
    • Interoperability isn’t just metadata, APIs and wire protocols
    • It’s policies, comparability and markets
    • People want to compare services
    • We need trust in transferability
  • An external perspective
    • None of us are perfect
    • Without oversight, standards can slip
    • External perspectives encourage improvement
    • Audit formalises this
  •  
  • Repository Audit Mechanisms
    • TRAC
    • DRAMBORA
    • NESTOR
    • DINI

  • But what about interoperability?
    • Easier to please auditors when using standards
    • Easier to compare A with B
    • Audits themselves - in standard form - allow consumers, depositors to compare
    • Is A better value/more trustworthy/more secure/more open than B?
  • An trivial example
    • What is the likelihood that you will lose 1 bit in X years ?
    • What confidence limits apply to that number ?
  • Not so trivial
    • What is the energy cost of preserving X bits over Y years ?
    • Do you do an environmental audit ?
    • Are you certified against recognised standards ?
  • Interoperable policies
    • I give you content - we have an agreement
    • Content is later transferred - merger, takeover, change of collection policy
    • Is my agreement transferred ?
    • Who do I sue ?
  • More on policies http://www.dlorg.eu/ https://workinggroups.wiki.dlorg.eu/index.php/Policy_Working_Group
  • Outsourcing
  •  
  • How does it help
    • Contracts, service level agreements, performance measures
    • Comparability is desirable
    • Interoperability - of a form - follows
    • Customers don’t like lock-in
    • Intelligent ones design it out - exit plans
