Abstract

This paper presents Mopseus, a Fedora-commons based digital repository that focuses on preservation. An overview of the general architecture of the system is presented along with some more in-depth details of its semantic structures. Mopseus features dynamic RDF- based relations, a service for defining metadata schemas, a built-in RDBMS synchronization and indexing mechanism, a mechanism for migration from existing repositories and a built-in workflow engine.
