Ann Arbor, MI  The Bentley Historical Library has announced the launch of a blog for the "ArchivesSpace-Archivematica-DSpace Workflow Integration" project, a collaboration between the Bentley and the University of Michigan Library made possible by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Project staff are working closely with Artefactual Systems, the developers of the Archivematica digital preservation system, to develop new features and/or functionality for these systems to:
  • streamline the ingest, arrangement, description, and deposit of archives in a digital repository and 
  • facilitate the creation and reuse of descriptive, administrative, and rights metadata across platforms.
 
All development work and associated documentation will be made freely available to the archives and digital preservation communities. In addition, ArchivesSpace-Archivematica interaction will function independently of DSpace; integration with the repository will employ open and widely-used standards so that other systems (such as Hydra) could be employed with additional development.
