SSA 2015 Boot Camp Bit by bit: implementing a Digital Preservation program Woodson Research Center About Us The team from Woodson Research Center, Fondren Library, Rice University Amanda Focke, Dara Flinn, Lee Pecht, Rebecca Russell, Norie Guthrie
Boot Camp Structure Share our institutional experience Tasks to get you started Learning Objectives What we will cover: Creating a policy Surveying the collection Applying the OAIS model to create information packages What we wont cover:
No in-depth discussion of digital forensics No in-depth discussion of different tools Preservation metadata Storage options Laying the Groundwork Our year of Digital Preservation begins Departmental goals for 2014 : put in place the needed institutional support
policies workflows software, hardware, and staff skills to have a true working digital preservation program. Stakeholders
Vice Provost and University Librarian Digital Scholarship Services IT Users Donors Us Mission Statement
The mission of the Woodson Research Center, like that of its parent body, the Fondren Library of Rice University in Houston, Texas, is to support the institutional, research and public service programs of the University. The Center collects, organizes, preserves and describes official records of the University, special collections of rare books and manuscripts. It makes these materials available for Rice faculty, students and alumni, as well as local, national and international researchers via exhibitions, lectures, and other public events, and by publishing print and online materials highlighting the department's primary source collections. The Fondren Library is committed to
providing the analog and digital preservation support which makes long-term access to its rare and unique materials possible. Creation of a high-level digital preservation policy The policy was based on the NEDCC template https://www.nedcc.org/assets/media/documents/SoDAExerciseToolkit.pdf Items addressed in policy
Goals and Objectives Projects to Undertake Organizational Commitments Developing a digital preservation policy Items addressed in policy, contd
Financial Commitments Personnel Preservation and Quality Control Preservation Metadata Roles and Responsibilities Training and Education Evaluating and Updating Developing a digital preservation policy
Overcoming Concerns Archivists concerns So much change at once Time/training IT concerns Storage Hardware/Software support
Developing a digital preservation policy Reading and Training SAA Classes: Arrangement and Description of Electronic Records Digital Forensics Achieving Email Account Preservation with XML

Option A: Creating a disk image Joel Cyprus with disc platter from "Bryant bulk memory installed" in enclosed module, Rice University Computer Project, http://scholarship.rice.edu/handle/1911/71814 Disk imaging is the process of extracting unaltered bitstreams from digital media; it creates a perfect capture of a device's file structure and all contents (including hidden files and fragments) into one file, the disk image Identifying tools to help us implement OAIS compliant system Why use disk images in your
digital preservation program? A more stable storage format with better contextual info Capturing disk images in forensic formats such as E01 and AFF provides many advantages. The images can be stored compressed or uncompressed, can be split into multiple storage containers, can be parsed at the filesystem level without explicitly extracting the raw image, and embed provenance and capture metadata along with the bitstream. Forensic images ensure that no inadvertent changes are made during pre-ingest chain-ofcustody, and provide a consistent baseline for generating different types of access materials.

Software BitCurator (open-source) suite of digital forensics tools Guymager: A GUI-based disk imaging program for capturing disk images in raw, E01, and AFF formats. Bulk extractor and bulk extractor viewer: Simson Garfinkel's stream-based forensics tool for extracting features of interest from disk images (including but not limited to private and individually identifying information) and associated GUI front-end. Fiwalk: Simson Garfinkel's tool for generating Digital Forensics XML output describing filesystem hierarchies contained on disk images.
BitCurator helps us to: Create a disk image (.dmg) which preserves digital context, Run detailed reports to assist with keeping the materials accessible over time and to create a preservation description information (PDI) Identifying tools to help us implement OAIS compliant system BitCurator Site visit Lee, C.A.; Olsen, P., Chassanoff, A., Woods, K.; Kirschenbaum, M., & Misra, S.
