Title: nestor II: e-Science and Preservation--A Perfect Match?
Authors: Neuroth, Heike
Issue Date: 27-Oct-2006
Abstract: e-Science and Preservation - A Perfect Match: The hard sciences have worked for many years towards global collaboration on an infrastructural and workflow level. The concepts and technologies eveloped in this venture are increasingly being adopted by other disciplines including the social sciences or the arts and humanities. In Europe these disciplines aim to establish an integrated e-Science landscape to benefit from the existing resources and experiences attained by the "hard sciences". Current humanities projects under the e-Science umbrella are on a promising route. The preservation community could benefit greatly from the e-science community in the strive for - amongst other - sharing storage resources while maintaining local autonomy; interoperability and resource integration on a semantic level; adaptability for long-term stability; sharing services and synchronising workflows. As part of its mission as a national coalition for digital preservation, Nestor II aims to network the e-Science and preservation communities and further the transfer of concepts and tools between them.
