|dc.description.abstract||This paper introduces the concept of the simple persistent unique digital store which is an attempt to provide a means of digital
object storage that will survive one hundred years into the future using open standards , technologies and formats. In addition it will
attempt to make the digital object store independent of the software used to ingest, store, manage and disseminate the objects.
Doing this greatly eliminates the risk of the present interdependence of the digital object store with the institutional repository
management software and adds greater utility to future digital store management software systems.||en_ZA
