Digital preservation deals with the problem of retaining the meaning of digital information over time to ensure its accessibility. The process often involves a workflow which transforms the digital objects. The workflow defines
document pipelines containing transformations and validation checkpoints, either to facilitate migration for persistent archival or to extract metadata. The transformations, nevertheless, are computationally expensive, and therefore digital preservation can be out of reach for an organization whose core operation preservation.
is not in data conservation. The operations described the document
workflow, however, do not frequently reoccur. This paper
combines an implementation-independent workflow designer
with cloud computing to support small institution in their adhoc
peak computing needs that stem from their efforts in digital
