Evaluating preservation strategies for electronic theses and dissertations. Costantino Thanos, Francesca Borri and Leonardo Candela (eds.). (Lecture Notes in Computer Science, vol. 4877).

Digital preservation has turned into a pressing challenge for institutions having the obligation to preserve digital objects over years. A range of tools exist today to support the variety of preservation strategies such as migration or emulation. Yet, di®erent preservation requirements across institutions and settings make the decision on which solution to implement very di±cult. The Austrian National Library will have to preserve electronic theses and dissertations provided as PDF Żles and is thus investigating potential preservation solutions. The DELOS Digital Preservation Testbed is used to evaluate various alternatives with respect to speciŻc requirements. It provides an approach to make informed and accountable decisions on which solution to implement in order to preserve digital objects for a given purpose.We analyse the performance of various preservation strategies with respect to the speciŻed requirements for the preservation of master theses and present the results.
