Zoltán Szatucsek: Preservation of digital records - The E-ARK Project

In 2011 the Hungarian archivist profession came up with the idea to take concrete steps towards harmonizing the handling of electronic records on an European level.

Due to this started three years later the exciting project of E-ARK, in parallel with a new development of the National Archives of Hungary. The question was whether it was possible to create solutions that fit for 28 member states’ institutions with different backgrounds? What advantages does standardization have and where are its limits? The presentation introduces the opportunities created by the development, the research, the softwares and their place in the Hungarian field. It also presents a subtask of the National Archives of Hungary which was to develop a data warehouse solution that opens up new potentials for the archivist field.
