One Thing is Missing or Two Things are Confused: An Analysis of OAIS Representation Information.

Sacchi, Simone; Wickett, Karen M.; Renear, Allen H.; Dubin, David

We describe two alternative interpretations of OAIS Representation Information (CCSDS, 2002), and show that both are flawed. The first is insufficient to formalize a model of preservation, and the second leads to category mistakes in conceptualizing the nature of digital artifacts. This analysis is based on earlier work developing a framework for the application of significant properties to datasets (Sacchi et al, 2011).
