The REMAP Project

The REMAP project is a project funded under the auspices of the Joint Information Systems Committee 'Repositories and Preservation' Programme. It is investigating the use of a digital repository to support the embedding of records management and digital preservation within the context of a UK Higher Education institution.

Open repositories 2008 (04/08) The REMAP team contributed a poster to the main OR08 conference and a paper in the Fedora strand. These presentations can be located from the 'documents' page of this site.


Development work (03/08) The team is working on infrastructural development to support RMDP (see below) with Fedora repositories. To comply with our standards-based approach, this work is centred on using the Apple Darwin Calendar Server and the iCalendar standard.

Requirements gathering (11/07) The team has spent the summer and early autumn gathering requirements for Records Management and Digital Preservation (RMDP) from potential users and collaborators. These are now being correlated and a report will be produced shortly. We have recently planned the first stage of our implementation process which will see a persistence layer built above our Fedora repository with messaging requirements specified in xCAL.


Project Plan (08/06/07) The approved Project Plan is now available on our 'documents' page.


First steps (18/04/07) At the project start meeting last Friday the team planned the User Requirements Gathering phase of the project. This will last for six months and will draw on input from staff at both Spoken Word Services and at the University of Hull. It is intended that initial discussions with participants will take place up to the end of May with detailed needs gathering taking place in June and July.


Project start meeting (30/03/07) The REMAP start meeting is now fixed for April 13th (hopefully not an inauspicious date!). Shortly after that we should be able to publish a draft timetable for deliverables and other milestones.We have added an RSS feed to this site so that you can be notified of updates (see text box above).


Project start (08/03/07) The REMAP project will officially start on 1st April 2007 and run for two years. At the moment the project team is busy arranging a start meeting. Watch this space!
