Abstract

Distributed digital repositories can be used to address critical issues of long-term digital preservation and disaster management for large data centers. A policy-driven system provides an ideal solution for managing distributed repositories that require high flexibility and high configurability. Recent studies demonstrate that the integrated Rule-Oriented Data System, a peer-to-peer server middleware, provides the requisite dynamic extensibility needed to manage time-varying policies, automate validation of assessment criteria, manage ingestion processes, manage access policies, and manage preservation policies. The policy management can be implemented underneath existing digital library infrastructure such as Fedora.
