Preface from the original site

Welcome to the cairo website!

Cairo will develop a tool for ingesting complex collections of born-digital materials, with basic descriptive, preservation and relationship metadata, into a preservation repository. The project is based on needs identified by the JISC-funded Paradigm project and the Wellcome Library's Digital Curation in Action project. It is a key building block in the partner institutions' strategy to develop digital repository architectures which can support the development of digital collections over the long-term.

You can find out more by visiting the About section of this website.

What's new?

Cairo is a new project funded under the 'Tools and Innovation' strand of the JISC's capital programme on Repositories and Preservation. The project will run to the end of August 2008. You can find out more in the About section of this website.
