Target Settings and Sustainability


The University of Rostock is about to establish an overall design in order to archive digital objects trustably for a long time. Therefore, a special archive system is being developed which allows special and precious corpora to being integrated since they are needed for research programs at the University of Rostock.


After a development project has phased out (and thus the external funding) two necessary activities guarantee sustainability:

  • technical- and
  • content-related maintenance and service of the platform


Administration and maintenance require even larger efforts, the more complex the features available for the user are. Thus, the university’s library, the data centre and the Department for Computer Science undertook to cooperate with each other, an agreement which has become known as the “Rostocker Modell”.
