The Digital Library Development & Systems team use the software Archivematica for digital preservation tasks. In addition to allowing the team to exploit new functionality, upgrading to the latest version of this software will aid the expansion of the Digital Preservation process by acting as a further step towards Digital Preservation being offered as a Service for users.

This upgrade will be done in co-ordination with the external supplier Artefactual, and a team member from ITI Enterprise Unix will provide the necessary permissions to access the underlying servers. 

Additionally, a front-end web form will be developed by the team, and a review of the system’s scalability will be undertaken to ensure it is fit for current and future use.
