“eArchiving facilitates a universal set of standards and specifications for transmitting, describing, and preserving digital data. For us, this will remove the obstacle of different standards and specifications that exists for archives wanting to collaborate or share solutions.

E-ARK Knowledge Centre

The E-ARK project contributed to harmonising currently fragmented archival approaches for ingest, preservation and re-use through the definition of the E-ARK SIP, E-ARK AIP and E-ARK DIP. The proliferation of standards and references together with the recognition that problems should be analysed from different stakeholder perspectives, and mindful of the motivations which predominate in different communities, the project identified a need for a knowledge system that provides stakeholders with a consolidated view of existing knowledge. The E-ARK Knowledge Centre represents exactly such a system. It provides a comprehensive, but simple and easily understood, set of services that allow users to understand, contribute to and validate information governance good practices.
