APARSEN/SCAPE project Satellite Event – Long term accessibility of digital resources in theory and practice




We are delighted to announce the APARSEN/SCAPE project Satellite Event in context of the 3rd LIBER workshop on Digital Curation “Keeping data: The process of data curation” (19-20 May 2014).


An overview on management aspects such as digital rights management, policies and costs as well as technical aspects with a focus on preservation planning and scalability in digital preservation will be given. Insights into the day-to-day practice of digital preservation will foster the understanding of theoretical concepts developed in the two EU funded projects.

Exhibit A: The Evidence for Effective Digital Preservation

This course offers best practices for the curation and publication of experimental data on the web. This is demonstrated by applying the principles of 5 Star linked data to:

  • data generated from digital preservation testing and experimentation, and
  • the metadata about the tools and data that the published data depends upon.
