    • Electronic Records Preservation: ERA Research and Development Lagring – Arkivering Två världar – en vardag? 13 October 2008 Mark Conrad ERA Research National Archives and Records Administration
    • NARA’s Mission
      • To ensure access to records of three branches of the U.S. Government. Records that:
        • Protect citizen’s rights
        • Hold Government officials accountable
        • Facilitate historical understanding of our national experience
    • Electronic Records NARA’s Challenges
      • Scope The entire U.S. Federal Government
      • Obsolescence Constantly Changing Technology
      • Access Ability to view records over time
      • Volume Large amounts of records arriving to NARA
      • Variety Different/Complex Types of Records
      • Complexity and Records Formats
    • ERA Program History
      • 1970 First electronic records transferred to NARA, begin preservation
    • Transfers of Digital Files to NARA (1970 – 1995)
    • Transfers of Digital Files to NARA: Reagan/Bush Presidential Records
    • Transfers of Digital Files to NARA: Clinton Presidential Records
    • ERA Program History (cont.)
      • 1970 First electronic records transferred to NARA, begin preservation
      • 1998 NARA is heading for mission failure
    • NARA’s Strategic Response: The ERA Program
      • Research and exploratory development on technologies that offer promise for addressing electronic records challenges.
      • Acquiring and building a system that meets our requirements and our mission for NARA, the Presidential Libraries, and Federal Records Centers
      • Organizational and cultural Change Management
    • ERA Program History
      • 1998 ERA Research Begins
        • Understand the Issues
        • Feasibility
        • Relevant Technologies
    • ERA Program History
      • 2000 ERA becomes an Official Program
      • 2003 ERA Requirements Issued
        • http://www.archives.gov/era/pdf/requirements-amend0001.pdf
        • Based on ERA Research
        • Some Standards Referenced
          • OAIS
          • DoD 5015.2
    • ERA Program History
      • 2008 ERA IOC
      • 2008 - ERA Research Continues
        • No one knows how to preserve and provide sustained access to authentic electronic records for most types of electronic records
        • No one knows what information technology will be in the future
    • ERA Research Program “ Next-generation methods, technologies, and tools are needed to...manage massive stores of distributed, heterogeneous information (e.g., science and engineering research data, Federal records , health information).
    • Human Computer Interaction and Information Management (HCI&IM) NITRD Agencies: NSF, DARPA, OSD and DoD Service research organizations, NIH, NASA, NIST, AHRQ, NOAA, EPA, NARA President’s 2009 Request Strategic Priorities Underlying This Request Today’s increasingly data-centric world requires the effective and strategic use of information assets. To advance the role of HCI&IM in providing strategic support for national priorities, R&D in this area focuses on: Information integration: To support complex human ideas, analysis, and timely decision-making, large amounts of disparate forms of raw information must be managed, assimilated, and accessible in formats responsive to the user needs. Next-generation methods, technologies, and tools are needed to fully integrate and efficiently manage massive stores of distributed, heterogeneous information (e.g., science and engineering research data, Federal records , health information) Key research issues include: – Information standards: Data interoperability and integration of distributed data; usability; provenance and integrity (metadata); generalizable ontologies; accessibility – Decision support: Timeliness of and access to data; user-oriented techniques and tools for summarization , synthesis, analysis, and visualization of information for decision-making; measurement and management of human responses to data – Information management (IM): Intelligent rule-based data management , efficient integration, maintenance, and access to complex, large-scale collections of heterogeneous data; innovative systems architecture; scalable technologies ; integration of policies ( differential sensitivity , security, user authentication) with data; integrated distributed data repositories ; testbeds ; sustainability and validation of complex models

      • Anticipate changes
        • characteristics of electronic records,
        • Preservation and Access technologies
        • Researcher expectations and behaviors
      • Recognize those things that will not or should not change
        • Archival science provides stable principles, concepts, requirements and understanding.
        • NARA’s mission and the functions
      • Make reasonable assumptions about the future
        • Use of computers will continue to become more common
        • Information use and Technology will continue to grow
