  "description": "<p>The purpose of this report is to describe SMURF (semantically marked up record format) profile,&nbsp;which includes ERMS (electronic records management systems) and SFSB (simple file-system based)&nbsp;records as described below. When extracting information from a producer&rsquo;s system one has the&nbsp;choice of two generic options:</p>\n\n<p>1. Extracting data in a relational database structure</p>\n\n<p>Extracting data from a relational database into a long-term preservation format (SIARD) that&nbsp;preserves the properties of the relational database so that the data can be imported into a&nbsp;relational database management system (RDBMS) on Access. Access can happen via database&nbsp;queries or via a search field.</p>\n\n<p>The main access use cases are:</p>\n\n<p>a. The producer wishes to retrieve their data for business purposes and/or re-use.</p>\n\n<p>b. The consumer wishes to consult the data for purposes of research.</p>\n\n<p>c. The archivist wishes to retrieve the data for professional treatment: to check and, if&nbsp;necessary perform preservation actions, etc.&nbsp;More information about this option can be read in the SIARD 2.0 Profile Specification.</p>\n\n<p>2. Extracting data and metadata as records</p>\n\n<p>Extract the records and normalise them to a standard E-ARK XML format. This means that the&nbsp;records are semantically marked up using metadata. Being technically valid and complying&nbsp;with this specification makes them directly accessible for validation, data management,&nbsp;indexing and searching. Their structured semantic metadata description is explicit rather than&nbsp;hidden inside a RDBS.&nbsp;The representation of descriptive metadata inside the archive can be in the E-ARK SMURF AIP&nbsp;format and/or another native archive format. The main advantages over the RDBS&nbsp;representation are that:</p>\n\n<p>o Records from different sources can be merged.</p>\n\n<p>o Search and access is possible across all records from all sources.</p>\n\n<p>o Records can be managed and accessed uniformly.</p>\n\n<p>o The original database / records system software does not need to be licensed and&nbsp;preserved.</p>",
