This poster describes the Integrated Preservation Suite (IPS) project. IPS is a British Library initiative to develop and populate an infrastructure capable of supporting preservation planning of highly diverse digital collections at scale. IPS comprises: A Representation Information Registry with information about formats and wider technical environments relevant to the Library’s digital collections; A Preservation Software Repository containing requisite current and legacy software for implementing preservation plans and rendering files; And an actionable Policy & Planning Repository of collection-specific data including collection profiles, preservation policies, and collection-specific preservation plans. These are accessed by a Preservation Workbench that interfaces between the components and the repository solution, accompanied by an Execution Platform upon which to test and execute actions, and a Preservation Watch function to trigger generation of a preservation plan within the Workbench interface for a known and imminently manifesting risk.
