Budapest, October 13-15

Thisthree-day workshop on Workflow was co-hosted by the Open Society Archives at Central European University and was held in Budapest, Hungary, October 13-15, 2004.

An efficient and methodically sound workflow is crucial to cope with the large quantity and the complexity of digital resources to be preserved. In the last couple of years a lot of experience has been gained in digitization projects. In other areas like the acquisition, ingest, maintenance and migration of digitally born objects the workflow considerations are only in an initial stage. Automation of such processes is essential to proceed from pilot applications to productive systems. Furthermore, basic archival principles require that all treatment of archival material is recorded and preserved in order to ensure its authenticity and understandability over time.

The workshop aimed to explore the workflow issues in digital preservation, to present examples and experiences and to show which steps in workflow chains best can be automated.
