About COW

COW logo

A recurring request from digital preservation practitioners has been for a community forum in which they can share and exchange experience on how they use tools in combination - in short - pool their knowledge about digital preservation workflows. This was discussed by one of the groups at the iPRES 2016 workshop: "OSS4Pres 2.0: Building Bridges and Filling Gaps". With some uncertainty over the best way to share our workflows, we thought we would try things out with a lightweight wiki based approach. This will allow us to experiment with the process and what we want to get out of it, before considering the need for a more comprehensive solution.

Contribute to COW

Please read the following guidelines before contributing to COW:

  1. Share your workflow with the community
    1. Give your workflow a meaningful title to help others find it
    2. Keep your workflow descriptions clean and concise. Text only is fine, but you are welcome to add a diagram. We recommend Yed as used by Bitcurator.
    3. If possible link your tool names to COPTR entries.
  2. Discuss or ask questions about the workflows of others using the respective "Discussion" pages.
  3. Be friendly - please treat others with respect
  4. Give us your feedback - let us know how you got on - email paul (at) dpconline (dot) org.

Create a new workflow by entering a title and clicking the button. Save frequently. Don't worry, once you've saved it you can go back and edit it further.

Other workflow sites

Of course we aren't first to the party, and there are some domain specific collections of workflows that can be found here:
