Building On OAIS: Processing Born-Digital Records Using Archivematica
  DOI :  10.2352/issn.2168-3204.2012.9.1.art00014  Published OnlineJanuary 2012

In early 2012, the 0.8 alpha version of the Archivematica (AGPL3) open-source digital preservation system was released. This system is based on the ISO-OAIS functional model and is designed to maintain standards-based, long-term access to collections of digital objects. Using Archivematica, the City of Vancouver Archives stored its first production archival information package (AIP). Processing 50 TB of e-records from the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games revealed some limitations of the ISO-OAIS model in the areas of appraisal, arrangement and description. The project resulted in adding requirements intended to fill those gaps to Archivematica's development roadmap for its micro-services architecture and web-based dashboard.
