UC3 is developing a new Digital Preservation Repository based on a set of curation micro-services. (We’ve named this development effort “Merritt” after Lake Merritt, just a few blocks from our office.)

We’ve reached a development milestone, and held a webcast for our partners on May 20. In this webcast, we explain our new approach and demo the new repository, showing the ingest process and highlighting the new features. Our goal is to show our development and to hear your thoughts on how we can improve our new system.

The webcast is now available online: https://cc.readytalk.com/play?id=4gexng

Here’s the agenda:

Speaker Subject Starting time
Trisha Cruse Introduction to UC3 00:00

Demo of Storage and Ingest 39:41
