Vol. 54 (2005) no. 1 of 'Library Trends' is a theme issue, entitled: "Digital Preservation: Finding Balance", with many interesting articles.

Xena is a program that can take many file formats and convert them to a (supposedly open-format, long-term stable) XML format. It has been used with DSpace.

Open questions

  1. Can we eventually store lots of small files (page images) directly in HPSS via the filesystem interface without aggregation, or will it simply take too long to retrieve these files?
  2. Should we store copies of our metadata in HPSS, or are the regular server backups good enough for this?
