The SCAPE project develops scalable services for planning and execution of institutional preservation strategies on an open source platform that orchestrates semi-automated workflows for large-scale, heterogeneous collections of complex digital objects. SCAPE will enhance the state of the art of digital preservation in three ways: by developing infrastructure and tools for scalable preservation actions; by providing a framework for automated, quality-assured preservation workflows, and by integrating these components with a policy-based preservation planning and watch system. These concrete project results are being validated within four large-scale Testbeds from diverse application areas.
- User-Driven Digital Preservation 28/08/2014We recently posted an article on the UK Web Archive blog that may be of interest here, User-Driven Digital Preservation, where we summarise our work with the SCAPE Project on a little prototype application that explores how we might integrate user feedback and preservation actions into our usual discovery and access processes. The idea is that we need to gatandy jackson

- A VM4C3PO 17/07/2014We have just set up a vagrant environment for C3PO. It starts a headless vm where the C3PO related functionalities (Mongodb, Play, a downloadable commandline jar) are managable from the host's browser. Further, the vm itself has all relevant processes configured at start-up independently from vagrant, so it can be, once created, downloaded and used as aalecs
- New QA tool for finger detection on scans 10/07/2014I would like to draw your attention to the new QA tool for finger detection on scans: https://github.com/openplanets/finger-detection-tool. This tool was developed by AIT in scope of the SCAPE project. Checking to identify fingers on scan manually is a very time-consuming and error-prone process. You need a tool to help you: Fingerdet.Fingerdet is an open soRoman Graf
