Conference paper Open Access
This paper discusses innovations within the Archivematica project as a response to the experiences of early implementers. These are informed by the greater archival, library, digital humanities and digital forensics communities. Early deployments have revealed some limitations of the ISO-OAIS model in the areas of appraisal, arrangement, description, and preservation planning. The Archivematica project has added requirements intended to fill those gaps to its development roadmap for its micro-services architecture and web-based dashboard. Research and development is focused on managing indexed backlogs of transferred digital acquisitions, creating a SIP from a transfer or set of transfers, developing strategies for preserving email, and receiving updates about new normalization paths via a format policy registry (FPR).
