Feedback form is now closed.
The Oxford Common File Layout (OCFL) specification began as a discussion at a Fedora/Samvera Camp held at Oxford University in September of 2017. Since then, it has grown into a focused community effort to define an open and application-independent approach to the long-term preservation of digital objects. Developed for structured, transparent, and predictable storage, it is designed to promote sustainable long-term access and management of content within digital repositories. This presentation will focus on the motivations and vision for the OCFL, explain key choices for the specification, and describe the status of implementation efforts.
