The goal of the SHAMAN project is the development of fundamental concepts and technologies for the next generation Digital Preservation network system. The German National Library and its partners have created a demonstrator that showcases the distributed instances of the envisaged archival concept. The demonstrator is aligned in accordance with the new archive-centric information lifecycle model and connects new innovative technology of the international partners, especially of notable universities and technology enterprises, to foster the distributed ingest into an enhanced preservation framework and to adapt services that are used to manage, preserve, enrich and access digital data.The paper will outline the developmental goals and focus especially on the development work of the demonstrator. By highlighting these aspects, the innovative approach of SHAMAN and the objective to provide a next generation Digital Preservation framework will become visible.
