Positioning libraries in the digital preservation landscape

  1. 1. Positioning libraries in the digital preservation landscapeSusan Reilly, LIBERTwitter: @skreillyMemory of the World in the Digital Age, Vancouver, 28th Sep, 2012
  2. 2. OverviewAbout LIBERDrivers for digital curation (European context)CollaborationSustainabilityInnovationChallengesConclusion This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp 2
  3. 3. LIBER: the association of European research libraries• University, national andother research libraries• Over 430 members• More than 40 countries This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  4. 4. Making the case for research libraries“to support a functional network across nationalboundaries in order to ensure the preservation ofEuropean cultural heritage, to improve access tocollections in European research libraries, and to provide more efficient information services in Europe”
  5. 5. Making the case for research librariesProjects: Content Europeana Libraries Europeana Newspapers Policy MEDOANET Infrastructure APARSEN AAA Study ODE This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  6. 6. Digital Curation Drivers• Digital Agenda for Europe: • All European cultural heritage available online by 2025 • All public domain masterpieces available in Europeana(Digital Agenda)• Cost= 10 billion per year over the next 10 years (Collections Trust)• Increase in Open Access and born digital content• Legislation mandating the deposit of born digital content This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  7. 7. Collaboration: Europeana Travel• Digitise resources(books, maps,photos, film) on the theme of traveland make them available viaEuropeana• Strengthen collaboration betweenCENL and LIBER• Aggregation service for LIBERmember institutions This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  8. 8. Architecture for a LIBER aggregator service for EuropeanaTravel Institutional/Country/Consortium Partnership Why not OAI mergeaggregators? Local/National Repository Platform and Access OAIOAI LIBER aggregator TEL aggregator This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  9. 9. State of digital preservation practice in LIBER libraries“under investment in skills for digital preservation…. and often a lack of written policies on the preservation of digitised material”
  10. 10. Four networks and a project Network libraries: LIBER, CERL, CENL Project: Europeana Libraries The European Library: the libraryThis project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) aggregator for Europeanaas part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by theEuropean Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp Europeana: Europes museums, libraries, archives and audio-visual aggregator
  11. 11. Sustainability: Europeana Libraries• A valuable resource for researchers with full-text search capabilities• A robust network of national and research libraries• An efficient sustainable aggregation model for research libraries across Europe 3,319,045 pages 598,130 books and theses 368,000 articles 848,078 images 1,200 film and video clips 34,000 mixed content objects This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  12. 12. Collaboration for sustainability• Building the aggregation servicehas involved… • Consultation & articulation of value proposition • Business Model • Business Plan This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  13. 13. Collaboration for sustainability• but it has given us a better view of the digitisation landscape and will deliver benefits for libraries in the future such as: • Efficiency • Effectiveness • Visibility • Credibility This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  14. 14. Innovation: Europeana Newspapers• 17 partner institutions• 3 years (2012-2015)• Aggregation of more than 18 million newspapers• Will use refinement methods for OCR, OLR (article segmentation), and named entity (NER) and class recognition• Suvey existing collections in Europe• Make content accessible This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  15. 15. Europeana Newspapers: where the content comes from…We are looking for more libraries! NLE LIBER NLF SUB HH NLL CCS USAL NLP BL KB SBB ONB UIBK NLT BnF UB LFT This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  16. 16. Why newspapers?“The museum (and the newspaper) today seeks whatever represents normal life in its own native locality and with infinite pains its collections are arranged in a manner which is natural to them in their own habitat” Lucy Maynard Salmon (1976) in The Newspaper and the Historian This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  17. 17. Making the content accessible• OCR enables full text searching• OLR enables more targeted searching (titles and sections)• NER enables searching by people, place,and the discover of new relationships between entities This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  18. 18. Challenges: Trust and Data Curation• Alliance for Permanent Access to the Record of Science in Europe Network (APARSEN) • Work with the broader network of stakeholders to look across the excellent work in digital preservation which is carried out in Europe and to try to bring it together under a common vision • Trust, Sustainability, Usability, Access This project is partially funded under the ICT Policy Support Programme (ICT PSP) as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme by the European Community http://ec.europa.eu/ict_psp
  19. 19. Blue Ribbon Task Force “Define roles and responsibilities amongstakeholders to ensure an ongoing and efficient flow of resources to preservation throughout the digital lifecycle.”
  20. 20. Conclusions• DC challenge will grow forlibraries as they continue todigitise and grow digital collections• Collaboration facilitates economiesof scale, best practice and ultimatelybenefits the end user• Need for libraries to engage in thebroader DP dialogue to addresssustainability, define roles, andcontribute to the business case
