Operational Preservation Systems Working Group - Ingest at Scale

14 Jun 2023 at 8:00am - 14 Jun 2023 at 9:00am UTC
Members Only

This online members-only event will be held on the 14th of June 2023 from 8:00am - 9:00am UTC/9:00am - 10:00am BST (click for local time).

Ingesting content at scale remains one of the most time consuming and challenging elements of the preservation lifecycle. This meeting will be an opportunity to discuss problems associated with ingesting content and to consider approaches to address these issues and increase automation of manual tasks. As well as discussions around this theme there will be an opportunity to raise any other issues members have.

The Operational Preservation Systems Working Group provides a regular forum for DPC Members to discuss issues relating to the everyday management, configuration and trouble shooting associated with digital preservation systems. It is an opportunity to share experiences, discuss good practice, and identify and address common problems.

This meeting is open to any DPC Members with established preservation systems - selecting or procuring a system is out of scope for this group. For the purposes of this WG, a Preservation System is defined as the applications and tools used to preserve digital content that enact processes such as ingest, storage, preservation, and access. This might include (but is not limited to) those systems offered by DPC Supporters, as well as home grown, micro-service or open source systems.
