Projects with the California Digital Library
The California Digital Library (CDL) designed and built a preservation and access repository for the University of California system based on micro-services. Launched in late 2010, this system is called Merritt. CDL was interested in exploring what services would be important to non-University of California organizations, so MHS began working with CDL to test Merritt.
The Minnesota Historical Society worked with and explored the available features of Merritt from March 2010 - March 2011. This report describes the experience of using the system and covers the user interface in general; describes how objects can be ingested, versioned, and retrieved; available documentation; and discusses the factors to consider when exploring preservation options for your own needs.
