Digital archiving facility at Florida Center for Library Automation


The Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) is developing a central digital archiving facility for the libraries of the public universities of Florida. The FCLA Digital Archive will accept submission packages from participating partners, ingest digital documents along with the appropriate metadata, and safely store on-site and off-site copies of the files. An action plan will be developed for each file format, which might include the creation of canonical derivative versions and/or format migration. A primary characteristic of the FCLA digital archive is its role in serving the real needs of a diverse group of libraries. Every effort will be made to accommodate the formats important to the institutions, whether these are traditionally considered “archival” or not.

Library leaders should be drawn from across the organization. Any idea that technology leaders are overly specialised or too distant from general library work is outmoded and counter-productive.
