We are working on a project trying to guarantee
the long-term preservation of digital resources in mathematic
Following are my thoughts of building up a digital
preservation system using both OAIS and METS, I
hope to get some suggestions from
experts. Please point out the errors and forgive
1. use OAIS reference model as the
system architecture. that's to say, our preservation system will include
all the modules OAIS reference model has proposed.
2. use METS as the encoding standard for metadata.
Although METS organizes the metadata in a different way from what OAIS
information model has proposed, it provides "sockets" for almost all the information OAIS information model
has proposed according to Thomas Clay Templeton and Jerome McDonough. they
stated their opinions about OAIS and METS in the
mailing list of METS recently.
3. use the element set of Library of Congress
Audio-Visual Prototyping Project , because it is one of the proposed
administrative metadata schemes on the METS website, it has almost all the
information OAIS information model has proposed, and the organization of its
elements tallies well with METS.
4.design our own descriptive metadata about mathematic
