Description

One of the “purposeful pathways” in the UMass Medical School Lamar Soutter Library’s 2016-2020 strategic plan is to “responsibly preserve institutional investments in purchased and unique content” [1]. Upon completion of the strategic plan, the library began to investigate digital preservation services for its institutional repository on the Digital Commons platform, eScholarship@UMMS. Although content on bepress platforms is protected by a robust infrastructure that includes multiple backups and cloud storage with Amazon Glacier, the library was interested in an additional level of preservation and control, at a minimal cost. After researching various options over many months, in 2016 the library implemented the new bepress Archive service [2], which works with Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) [3] to provide a real-time archive of repository content and metadata. This presentation will describe the implementation process and the library’s experience to date with bepress Archive and Amazon S3.
