Tutorial: HAPPI toolkit

  • Luigi Briguglio (Engineering Ingegneria Informatica S.p.A.)


Prerequisites: * Bring your own laptop * Internet connection * Programming knowledge

The HAPPI Toolkit is part of the Data Preservation e-Infrastructure produced by the SCIDIP-ES project [www.scidip-es.eu]. This component, released with open source license (Apache License v2.0) and available on SourceForge [http://goo.gl/yWPBkV] is an implementation of an authenticity model defined by the collaboration of the APARSEN and SCIDIP-ES projects. This model describes how to trace and document transformations on any digital object during the whole life cycle, and it is based on Open Provenance Model and PREMIS. These de-facto standards improves interoperability among different digital archives and/or research communities.
Description of transformations on digital object is part of “preservation metadata” (a.k.a. Preservation Description Information) includes provenance, reference and integrity information, according to the Open Archival Information System (OAIS), standard ISO:14721:2012.

Objectives of the tutorial is to provide attendees with: * an overview of the digital preservation [15 minutes] * an overview of the datamodel implemented by HAPPI Toolkit [15 minutes] * an overview of the technologies, implementation details and code chunks of HAPPI Toolkit [30 minutes] * practice on HAPPI Toolkit instances on EGI FedCloud [10 minutes] * answers to questions [20 minutes]

Target audience: archivists, researchers, managers of research infrastructures and data centers, developers, EGI FedCloud users
