During this presentation Manfred Thaller (University at Cologne) describes the principle of file formats and discusses what formats to choose for what. With Planets as an example he shows what a consistently dynamic approach looks like, when trying to evaluate the performance of migration tools moving from one format to another, based on automatic analysis of the characteristics of files. He concludes his presentation with some thoughts about which characteristics of digital files do not reside in the file, but in the software which is used to display it and how the approaches discussed before can be extended to take care of these problems. The presentation was delivered during the joint DPE/Planets/CASPAR/nestor training event, ‘The Preservation challenge: basic concepts and practical applications’ in Barcelona, 23-26 March 2009.

This report outlines the results of the third (and final) iteration of a user study. The user study study was targetted to identify user requirements for preservation of digital documents, records and data sets. User requirements are modelled in a user requirements model that can be used in a broader requirements model for digital preservation. [PDF, 174KB]
