|Fedora Project - Final Report
The Manuscripts and Archives department, Yale University Library, and Digital Collections and Archives, Tufts University are pleased to announce the completion of the "Fedora and the Preservation of University Records Project". Funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the project combined electronic records preservation research and theory with digital library practice to investigate three areas of research: requirements for trustworthy recordkeeping systems and preservation activities, ingesting records into a preservation system, and maintaining records in a preservation system. While the Tufts-Yale Project is aimed at university archivists and focuses primarily on university records, the findings are not university-specific and are easily applicable to the management and preservation of electronic records in most industries.
The project is releasing thirteen reports and an ingest prototype tool. The reports fall into four groups: introduction, ingest, maintain, and findings. All reports and the ingest prototype tool are available through the project website at http://dca.tufts.edu/features/nhprc/index.html
The co-principal investigators for the project were Kevin L. Glick, Yale University, and Eliot Wilczek, Tufts University.
