Project Summary

Scripps Intstitution of Oceanography and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution are developing a digital repository to preserve data from more than 1,600 oceanographic research projects. The collaborating institutions will test processes for automatic archival ingest (acquisition), metadata extraction, validation and access control, and will also explore methods for the management of rights-protected data.

An overview of the project is available from the Library of Congress news release. A progress report(.ppt) and a project highlights summary(.doc) provide more detailed information. Funding is provided by the Digital Archiving and Preservation Program (DIGARCH) of NSF and the Library of Congress under award NSF/CISE/IIS 0455998.
