"Welcome to TOTEM - the Trustworthy Online Technical Environment Metadata Registry<br />

Totem poles are monuments created by First Nations of the Pacific Northwest to represent and commemorate ancestry, histories, people, or events, and would be erected to be visible within a community.<br />

The TOTEM registry is used, analogously, to record the complex hardware and software relationships which apply to digital objects, and to make them visible to the digital preservation community.<br />

TOTEM was created by the University of Portsmouth, Future Proof Computing Group"
