OAIS – a new discussion list

OAIS – a new discussion list

Keywords: Archives, Communications

A new discussion list (oais-implementers@lists2.rlg.org) has recently been launched. The list is intended for individuals and institutions who are actively working with the Open Archival Information (OAIS) Reference Model as a part of an overall effort to model, build, and manage their own digital archive or repository. List members will come from a variety of disciplines including (though not restricted to) libraries, archives, space data centres, corporations, universities, and others.

The Research Libraries Group (RLG) has created this list and its supporting Web pages (available at http://www.rlg.org/longterm/oais.html) to facilitate communication and provide information about OAIS reference model implementations, applications, and related standards development. The list provides a forum for discussion among people engaged in similar activities while the supporting Web pages alert researchers to OAIS activities occurring in similar disciplinary or geographical areas.
