Abstract

Faced with the possibility of running out of storage space and losing important born-digital cultural heritage artifacts, we are embarking on a project to design a process for preserving objects generated by our virtual world-based group so that these issues will not become critical in the future. Because of the highturnover nature of student-based groups, preservation of objects associated with annual and learning events is essential for continuity in the community. We present our blueprint for preserving these artifacts using a combination of an established archiving system together with a customized metadata schema that reflects the specific needs of VCARA and an easy to use interface for browsing collections.
