Guideline (Primer) for the Common Specification for Information Packages (CSIP), SIP, AIP, DIP, Preservation Metadata and Archival Information

This guideline (primer) describes the core IP specifications with the accompanying preservation metadata and archival information needed to create a complete package. The underlying standards, such as the OAIS Reference Model, XML, and METS, are described in a user-friendly way. Some notes regarding implementation are also present, but, in most cases, these will not be enough to explain how it is conducted in each system because of the complexity of all the systems. The principles for a package are also described and explained. The guideline will be an evolving document, and thoroughly explained examples will be added continuously. In this review, we would like you to focus on the questions below.

2018 DILCIS specification review

We kindly invite you to review the following eArchiving specifications. Originally created by the E-ARK project and enhanced and stabilised by the E-ARK4ALL project, these specifications are a core component of the CEF eArchiving Building Block.

The specifications have been released for review in two groups. In the first group, the ‘Common Specification for information Packages’ and the ‘Common Specification for Electronic Records Management Systems’ were released for review. In the second group, the E-ARK SIP, E-ARK AIP, E-ARK DIP, the SIARD Format Specification and the Common Specification for Geodata were released for review.

Your completed feedback on the specifications can be entered on this page: Feedback closed

The closing date for the review is February 24, 2019.

The material to be reviewed can be found here:

Common Specification for information Packages (CS IP)

The core of E-ARK specifications is the Common Specification for Information Packages. This delivers a basic core specification providing a necessary minimum for institutions across Europe to securely package their data, and then customise their data as required. For CS IP we would like you to review the full document and give comments on its principles and structural requirements in Part 1 as well as the implementation in Part 2.
