The panelists present and discuss an emergent, easy-to-implement technology for managing born-digital records. The chair, project lead, and three practicing archivists briefly describe and lead discussion about Archivematica, a collaborative/open-source development project. The project is developing an integrated set of microservices that implements digital preservation standards in conjunction with locally developed archival workflows and storage systems. The facilitators emphasize assessment of project results to date and welcome feedback on future project goals. (See also session 302.)
