Abstract (englisch):
Ubiquitous access to existing scientific data is one of the key enablers for rapid development and progress of empirical and without doubt, also non-empirical sciences. Management, in particular the long-term preservation of said data presents a major challenge. Universities, scientific and cultural organisations, international collaborations and projects have a need to preserve and maintain (open) access to large volumes of digital data for several decennia. Existing systems supporting these requirements span from simple databases at libraries to complex multi-tier software environments developed within scientific communities and organisations. Generally, all communities are confronted with a high volume of data that must be handled efficiently and with increasing data volumes, also economically. Development and integration of components to enable secure and reliable archival storage that make use of existing computer centres and infrastructures is an intrinsic goal in LSDMA and the project generally contributes to the improvement and development of support for long time scientific and non-scientific data preservation.
