    There is a major UK Universities project, covering ten universities, lead by Chris McMahon at Bath on the long term retention of knowledge, though I never remember the acronym (KIM?). This is separate from the UKOLN activity, also at Bath.
    I'd also be interested in the results of such a project, but it is seen as currently to long term for industrial investment. (You may have come across an article by me in the quarterly journal of the Norwegian national archive on long term retention of CAD, which is an entirely different set of problems.)

Hi Ontology forum

I'm currently working with a document and hope some of you can lead me to some relevant work within the topic "Preservation of semantic value".  I have several challenges with writing on the topic. I'm not sure if I have found a proper breakdown of the problem, and I'm unsure whether I use the proper academic terms in my literature search. 

If you have the time, please read through the following text and I hope you have some feedback to me.
Document as used below can be any type of data relevant for long term preservation, e.g. text files, drawings, video, etc. Further information : http://research.dnv.com/longrec/

Longrec project scope has defined a set of prerequisites for being able to use documents over time. These are:

    • Finding the document
    • Reading the document
    • Present / view / render the document
    • Trust the document

But if you do not understand the document is it then useful?  In the Longrec Understand work package we look into areas of changes with semantic impact. These areas of change are:

1.      How documents are used /procedures

    2.      Laws and regulations
    3.      Who use the documents
    4.      Presentation of documents
    5.      Symbol/terminology related to the actual topic/concept
    6.      Knowledge on the actual topic/reference
    7.      Document /data about an object/referent
    8.      Countermeasures and use of semantic technology to assure correct understanding of documents in aeon.  May be split into:

·       Procedural and administrative countermeasures

        1       Technology based countermeasures

9.      The object / referent itself (a ship versus a document describing a ship)

Further in this document we focus on state of the art related to changes in area: 5 to 9.
