We are pleased to announce that the E-ARK eArchiving Content Information Type Specifications, procedures and guidelines have been published, following the review period.
We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the draft documents - your contributions to this work have been crucial to moving the specifications forward for wider community adoption.
This is the first updated set of specifications and supporting documentation to be published in this cycle of the eArchiving Building Block. Further Common Specifications for the Information Packages and E-ARK SIP/AIP/DIP will be published at the end of October. This update will include improvements to the handling of issues recorded in GitHub and will address recommendations based on our findings during the development of the CITS SIARD.
We are currently looking into ways to involve contributors as the specifications evolve.
If you would like to learn more about the specifications, we invite you to join us for a dedicated event on Tuesday 26 October at 15:00 CEST. The programme is currently under development.
