SCAPE Project: Request for examples of working and best practice documentation

The OPF is a consortium member of the SCAPE (Scalable Preservation 
Environments) project, co-funded by the EU. 
http://www.scape-project.eu/<http://openplanetsfoundation.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=c2ba434b13896e6e89790a724&id=be534c846d&e=dc56c5b655>.

The project will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation in three 
ways: by developing infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions; 
by providing a framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows 
and by integrating these components with a policy-based preservation planning 
and watch system. These concrete project results will be validated within three 
large-scale Testbeds from diverse application areas: Digital Repositories from 
the library community, Web Content from the web archiving community, and 
Research Data Sets from the scientific community. Each Testbed has been 
selected because it highlights unique challenges.

One of the work-packages in which the OPF is participating is undertaking a 
task to carry out a survey of working and existing best practices documentation.

1. We are currently collecting examples of institutional guidelines, reports 
and documentation of working and best practice on Repository Migration.

If your institution has experience in, or if you aware of existing literature 
in this area, we would be very grateful if you would be willing to send us 
examples of documentation for our survey. The examples will be used to write a 
report on working and best practices to which we will add SCAPE experience. Any 
examples that we cite in the reports will be anonymised.

2. We are also collecting examples of institutional guidelines, reports and 
documentation of working and best practice on the Preservation of Scientific 
Datasets.

As above, if your institution has experience in, or if you aware of existing 
literature in either of these areas, we would be very grateful if you would be 
willing to send us examples of documentation for our surveyand report.

If your examples can be publicly available, please add them to the wiki pages: 
http://wiki.opf-labs.org/display/SP/Examples+of+working+and+best+practice<http://openplanetsfoundation.us2.list-manage.com/track/click?u=c2ba434b13896e6e89790a724&id=15cf02834c&e=dc56c5b655>.
 Alternatively, please send examples to 
rebe...@openplanetsfoundation.org<mailto:rebe...@openplanetsfoundation.org> 
with the topic of your examples in the subject.

Thank you,

Kind Regards,
