Reliability, Interoperability, Security, Metadata)
Library (CUL) Research Program
This DLI2 project
is a four-year collaborative effort between the CUL and the Cornell's
Computer Science Department to investigate and develop policies and mechanisms
needed for information integrity in the context of component-based digital
library architecture. The key research areas include long term survivability
of digital information, reliability of information resources and services,
interoperability, and security (the privacy rights of users of information
and the intellectual property rights of content creators), and metadata
that makes it possible to ensure information integrity in digital libraries.
At the heart of this project is translating the traditional preservation
strategies to the digital realm in order to support the development of
digital preservation tools and mechanisms. Project Prism addresses preservation
issues involved in a variety of digital formats.
University Library research team consists of Anne R. Kenney,
Nancy Y. McGovern, William R. Kehoe, Peter Botticelli, and Richard
Entlich. Sarah Thomas, University Librarian, is one of the Co-Principal
Investigators of the project.
