DAWG-Architecture Update

The second meeting of the DAWG group focused on discussing important new technolgies (OAI-PMH, SCORM) and on developing and clarifying the needs of the network architecture. The diagram below illustrates some of the repositories interacting with a proposed RU repository.

The architecture at this point is "content netutral." It should be able to capture any kind of data. Future policies may determine what actually gets "ingested."

The RU Repository is to be: institution based capturing RU output and is intended to be cumulative and perpetutual while remaining open and interoperable with other systems.

The OAIS Functional model (an ISO standard) will inform our work to develop functional requirments.

The OAIS Functional model (with entities)

OAIS Reference Model [http://wwwclassic.ccsds.org/documents/pdf/CCSDS-650.0-B-1.pdf] (148 pp), is the model for designing the "RU Repository".

The timeline for DAWG-A's work is:
