20yrs: 2004 jisc cni-brighton


Published on

The JISC Continuing Access and Digital Preservation Strategy 2002-5, presentation to the 2004 JISC-CNI conference, Brighton UK is the fifth of 12 presentations I have selected to mark 20 years in Digital Preservation.
This presentation from 2004 is important largely for the legacy of the Strategy that established bodies such as the Digital Preservation Coalition and the Digital Curation Centre, which still have a major influence today.

The presentation sets out the context and rationale for the Strategy including the predicted growth of electronic publications, scientific data, and data curation. The implications of that growth were seen as:
• Core funding for institutions would not grow in line with information growth;
• A need for more automation and tools;
• A need for new shared services and information infrastructure;
• A significant need for R&D and investment to prepare for this.

Therefore the objectives of the Strategy were:
• As an advocacy document to secure additional funding of £6m over 3 years (2002-5) for new programmes in electronic records management and digital preservation;
• Justify the accompanying implementation plan;
• Provide a longer-term framework and rationale for activity extending beyond 2005.

  1. 1. Supporting further and higher education Presentation to Jisc/CNI conference, July 2004, Brighton UK JISC Continuing Access and Digital Preservation Strategy 2002-5 Neil Beagrie
  2. 2. 2 Overview • Background – JISC and its communities – Previous work – Digital information growth and preservation • The Strategy • Objectives, aims, actions • Conclusions and further info
  3. 3. 3 JISC Context • a committee with ‘Top sliced’ funding from 6 UK HE/FE Funding Councils • UK-wide remit (England, Northern Ireland Scotland, Wales) • serves: – 190+ Higher education institutions – 500+ Further education institutions • Budget £65m baseline + c£20m pa • c 60 Staff – 1 Digital Preservation + 1 Elect. Records
  4. 4. 4 Digital Preservation Focus 2000 • establish best practice and guidelines and dissemination • generate support and collaborative funding from and promote inter-working with agencies worldwide • develop a long-term digital preservation strategy for digital materials of relevance to Higher and Further Education in the UK
  5. 5. 5 The Need for Digital Preservation • Institutional knowledge base and intellectual assets increasingly in digital form • Substantial investment by the sector in licensing electronic content, digitisation & creation of digital content • Need to tackle uncertainties over archiving which impede the growth and take-up of digital resources, e-science and new working practices • Secure long-term access to digital resources and gain lasting benefits of current investment in digitisation and digital content
  6. 6. 6 Predicted Growth of Serials Publications (after EPS) 0 2,000 4,000 6,000 8,000 10,000 12,000 14,000 16,0002001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 All serials (print + e-) Dual form e-only serials
  7. 7. 7 Projected Growth of Scientic Data, and Data Curation • In next 5 years e-Science will produce more data than has been collected in the whole of human history • Analysis demonstrates need for long- term curation in many areas ranging from engineering design and clinical trials to environmental and astronomical data • Not solely an issue of volumes: issues of selection and retention, required documentation and tools
  8. 8. 8 Implications • Core Funding for institutions will not grow in line with information growth • Need for more automation and tools • Need for new shared services and information infrastructure • Significant need for R&D and investment now to prepare for this

  11. 11. 11 Key Implementation Actions • complete a series of scoping studies • supporting records management and digital preservation in institutions • develop a “preservation layer” for the Information Environment • Establish a Digital Curation Centre • Catalysing partnerships and work by others
  12. 12. 12 The Studies • JISC Records • web resources • e-science data • e-prints • e-journals • e-learning objects • information on file formats/software documentation • Assessment of LOCKSS system (ongoing) • Purpose: – intensively assess options and scale – move the Strategy forward – risk management - a phased approach
