Description: The Integrated Preservation Suite (IPS) is an internally-funded three-year initiative of the Library’s Digital Preservation Team at the British Library. IPS is comprised of the following conceptual components: A Representation Information Registry with information about formats and wider technical environments relevant to the Library’s digital collections; A Preservation Software Repository containing requisite current and legacy software for implementing preservation plans and rendering files; An actionable Policy & Planning Repository of collection-specific data including collection profiles, preservation policies, and collection-specific preservation plans. The initiative will not only design and implement the technical infrastructure for the Suite but will also populate it with the content required for the infrastructure to work in a business environment. Development is agile and components are being built from the ground up, with data models developed and refined as we progress.
