Project Description: 

The JISC Preserv 2 project is investigating and developing digital preservation services for repositories, to help repository managers plan for longer-term data management. Preserv began as an EPrints-PRONOM focussed project with a view towards large, black-box service providers, and ends with a quite different perspective of more generic repository harvesting interfaces allied to a series of lightweight, interacting Web-based preservation services providing choice, flexibility and cost-effectiveness.
