Towards a sustainable European preservation infrastructure for the arts and humanities

Kalman, T.; Tonne, D. ORCID iD icon; Schmitt, O.


DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities) aims to support digitally-enabled research across the arts and humanities. The activities and service portfolios are centered around communities to enable transnational, interdisciplinary research (Kalman et al., 2014). Sustainable management of research data is one of the most important goals of DARIAH. To offer a common technological solution is challenging due to the heterogeneity of the tools and data. In this paper we analyse these problems, discuss a general concept for long-term storage in DARIAH, and present the current state of two implementations of the DARIAH Storage API (Funk et al.,2012). In the case of the DARIAH e-Infrastructure, widely-acknowledged standards and best practices are used to provide essential components for long-term storage. For implementing a long-term data management service, web services on a Representational State Transfer (REST) basis were selected as a solution, as they are lightweight and easy to understand. The DARIAH Storage API has a large support by most programming languages through frameworks and libraries. As DARIAH already provides some services for sustainable storage of data, the challenge of adapting the new DARIAH Interface is to provide a common base for different operation models. ... mehr
