Abstract:

Research in digital preservation field has realized the need for au-tomation of digital preservation activities. Without automation, the preservation of digital entities will be a complex and labor-intensive task. A middleware con-cept has been introduced by scholars to support automation of interactions be-tween content management systems and digital preservation systems. To boost the automation of workflows in the middleware, we introduce a component within the middleware, namely Context-aware Preservation Manager (CaPM), which is in charge of administration of the inner components of the middleware and the workflows for bi-directional interactions between content management systems and digital preservation systems. We describe the specifications of the Context-aware Preservation Manager and depict its inner components. Further, we explain about the processes that are improved, supported or can run automat-ically as a result of functionalities of Context-aware Preservation Manager.
