AIMS Born-Digital Collections: Project Updates

The AIMS (An Inter-Institutional Model for Stewardship) project is a two-year project focusing on creating an inter-institutional framework for stewarding born-digital content. The milestones for 2011 are to ingest born digital materials into a Fedora Commons repository, be able to search the repository, edit metadata, and may include a prototype user interface for arrangement (creating series and subseries). To do this, the Hypatia application is being created to support the acessioning, arrangement/description, delivery and long term preservation of born digital archival collections. The Rubymatica tool, which is being created to have a Submission Information Package (SIP) creation tool written in Ruby and ready to be integrated with a suite of web applications, continues to be refined, with a beta version available for testing by interested parties. Check out the AIMS blog for further details:
