Welcome to the Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG)

The PASIG is a vendor independent community open to any institutions and commercial organizations interested in learning and sharing practical experiences in the following:

* Comparison of high-level OAIS architectures, services-oriented architecture work, and use cases
* Sharing of best practices and software code
Cooperation on standard, open, 'in-a-box' solutions around repository technologies
* Review of storage architectures and trends and their relation to preservation and archiving architectures and eResearch data set management
Discussion of the uses of commercial third party and community-developed solutions

The community is focused on sharing open computing solutions and best practices. But while sharing information about the state-of-the-art developments in standards and open source is important, this is not a standards-setting organization. It is a place to share practical experiences, successes, pain points, and potential topics for more collaboration.
