Metadata for a Micro-services-based Digital Curation System

Kevin Clair


The Libraries and Information Technology Services at the Pennsylvania State University are in the process of developing a service architecture for supporting digital curation and preservation activity at the university. This system, called Curation Architecture Prototype Services (CAPS), is built on the micro-services approach to digital curation pioneered by the California Digital Library. The paper details methods and philosophies related to metadata development for this system, and how those methods align with the general approach of the micro-services model. The current state of production of this architecture is detailed, along with future metadata services to be embedded in the system, and how those services will be deployed in collaboration with its stakeholders.
