Abstract

This chapter is about the architecture of systems that store, preserve and provide access to digital cultural heritage objects. It presents some major design considerations for implementing cultural heritage system architectures and some existing architectural patterns currently in use. Then, a simpler architectural design is proposed; this new architecture could potentially have a positive impact on digital preservation.
