The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Information and Library Science has been given a$ 750,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for its BitCurator Access Project.
Here's an excerpt from the announcement:
The BitCurator Access project will develop open-source software that supports the provision of access to disk images through three exploratory approaches: (1) building tools to support web-based services, (2) enabling the export of file systems and associated metadata, (3) and the use of emulation environments. Also closely associated with these access goals is redaction. BitCurator Access will develop tools to redact files, file system metadata, and targeted bitstreams within disks or directories.
