Investigated long-term preservation for institutional repositories (IRs), by identifying preservation services in conjunction with specialists, such as national libraries and archives, and building support for services into popular repository software, in this case EPrints. The project moved towards a powerful and flexible framework based on granular Web services and providers. An exemplar service produced by the project was PRONOM-ROAR, which allies a digital file format identification service, PRONOM from the National Archives, with a Web registry of repositories (ROAR).

This project was superseded by the Preserv2 project.
