Title Preservation intent and collection identifiers: CLADDIER Project Report II
Contributors
Abstract The report was motivated by the need to cite collection objects in scholarly communication, in particular datasets. The persistent identification of datasets is insufficient for scholarly communication citation. There needs to be an explicit statement of what the intended preservation of a dataset will imply; for example it may not necessarily imply bit stream preservation. There is ambiguity in what type of object a datasets is; with different groups of users applying different connotations. More explicit language such as ?data file collection? ensures that objects are well defined. Preservation, identification and object definition are intimately linked. Using what needs to be preserved by a particular user community is an excellent way to define the boundaries and properties of datasets.
