Dear all,

The JISC Digital Repositories Programme Support team are currently 
preparing an evaluation report on the Reference Model for an Open 
Archival Informatoin System (OAIS) as a basis for a generic reference 
model for repositories, examining the arguments for and against using 
this model across different types of repositories.

The use of OAIS for digital preservation is growing, and work in this 
area includes a RLG Digital Repositories task force looking at 
certification. and a JISC project looking at disaggregating preservation 
and repository services.  Outside of the digital preservation community, 
there has been some discussion regarding the wider usefulness of OAIS, 
including the potential for an OAIS-lite approach to enable smaller 
organisations or less preservation-focussed repositories to utilise the 
OAIS model, concepts and terminology.  In addition, there has already 
been useful discussion on this list, and others, about the relationship 
between preservation and repositories which will be considered in the 
evaluation.

To ensure that the evaluation fully considers the needs of the 
communities involved, we would like to gather observations or comments 
about OAIS and its application in this context, or about similar work, 
please do send them, either on- or off-list.  Comments from different 
communities and domains would be particularly welcome.

The impetus for this work was provided by the repositories strand at the 
JISC-CETIS Conference 2006 and the Support team work element to scope 
reference models for repositories.
