Abstract

OAIS is not a design; its lack of specificity gives it wide applicability and great strength but it also forces implementers to make choices, among which is the level of application of the OAIS concepts. In this chapter we look particularly at Representation Information

Keywords

Digital Object Regular Expression Binary Software Floating Point Java Virtual Machine 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
