Title: OCFL V2 BoF Discussion

Facilitator(s): Neil Jefferies

Description: The Oxford Common File Layout (OCFL) aims to define an efficient, software-independent method for storing complex, versioned digital objects. A key aim is to simplify and potentially eliminate the migration of preserved digital objects when preservation systems inevitably change, since this action represents a signficant risk to object integrity at scale.

We would like to bring together users and potential users of OCFL to discuss and put forward features and/or use cases for discussion as part of the development of V2. These may be items that are added to the core specification or suggestions for optional features using the extensions mechanism. the Editors would also be interested in any issues that have been encountered implementing the current version of the specifcation.

OCFL is supported by a number of repository platforms (FEDORA, LibNova, InvenioRDM, potentially DSpace, and a number of others) as well as aligning with other standards such as BagIT, Research Objects and E-ARK.

Time: 3:30 PM – 4:10 PM (CT)
