Output – SAFIR: Requirements Specification – OAIS

Title: Digital Library Project (SAFIR): Requirements Specification

Pages: 5-13
Date Released: 07 March 2008

URI for Output: https://vle.york.ac.uk/bbcswebdav/xid-89716_3

Summary of contents:

This section of the specification uses the Reference model for Open Archival Information Systems (OAIS) as a basis for analysing the repositories context and creating a specific reference model on which to base the requirements specification.

The following the OAIS model the analysis considers:

  • the designated communities of the repository
  • how it aproaches different functional areas (ingest, archival storage, data management, administration, preservation planning, and access)
  • the information model and information lifecycle that has to be supported
  • issues of interoperablity and integration

Comments:

This provides an example of a lightweight use of OAIS as a method of describing and analysing the context of a repository. As such it considers the whole information lifecycle as part of the planning process.

URI for Output: https://vle.york.ac.uk/bbcswebdav/xid-89716_3

Summary of contents:
Five scenarios are presented for the use of a mulitmedia repository.
Each is focused around a key type of use; they are:

  • finding image materials
  • sharing resources, advice and guidance
  • streaming
  • archival collections
  • video materials

Comments:

The five scenarios are relevant to the growing knowledge/ innovation  base connected to the e-Framework.
