The TIPR Project, Towards Interoperable Preservation Repositories, was begun in October 2008, its participants being the Florida Center for Library Automation, the Bobst Library at New York University, and Cornell University Library. Our goal has been to develop, test, and promote a standard format for exchanging information packages among dissimilar preservation repositories - an intermediary information package that all repositories can read and write, overcoming the mismatch between repository types.
