  12. 12. Digital archives project planning • User interviews • Assessment of needs and our goals • Project plan • Staffing/roles • Tool selection (ongoing) • Collaboration with creators • Collaboration with advisors
  13. 13. STEP 1: figure out where the files are going to come from (what to collect?)
  14. 14. STEP 2: set goals, policies and establish workflow elements (standards, systems, partnerships, redundancy)
  15. 15. STEP 3: establish who is creating good stuff, and who can help with the archiving efforts
  16. 16. STEP 4: get data, preliminary ingest processes (get files into secure storage with access system w/ workable UI)
  17. 17. STEP 5: assign metadata/catalog (get database to talk to interface for cataloging)
  18. 18. Could be asking users to fill this in
  19. 19. This is what it would look like and from where we could export as a CSV and bring into Omeka
  20. 20. STEP 6: Resolve “technical difficulties” as much as possible & promote access to assets
  21. 21. STEP 7: Consider prospects formigration, normalization, future emulation, redundant storage
  22. 22. STEP 8: long term stewardship?
  23. 23. Archives working group’s informal work with the Internet ArchiveSent over 200 links to websites to harvestDe-prioritized initial research interestImmediate access to collection is helpfulEmail suggestions to
  24. 24. Archive-It.Org
  25. 25. The decision to not have orphan works It would be very easy to end up with a lot of orphan works The working group approved my proposal that we only collect CC licensed work There is no ‘OWS philosophy’ on licensing or problem with ‘exclusivity’ per se, we just didn’t want a ton of orphan content.
  26. 26. Creative Commons Licensing

  30. 30. ContentLivestreamed footage from the November15th, 2012 raid on Zuccotti Park.High quality recordings of the early days of themovement before Mini-DV became “obsolete.”
  31. 31. Scope & RisksIncomplete metadata.Poor storage in an already poor environment.No backup or system for access.
  32. 32. RecommendationsHold community archiving events for volunteersto re-label tapes, enter metadata into adatabase, and capture material to a digital file.Upload access copies to the Internet Archivefor universal access with complete metadata.
  33. 33. What’s the archives working group been doing with digital materials?
