The real value in this project lies in the upload (and download) tool that I’ve written about previously.

It actually does a lot:

  • takes a collection of related files and assembles them into a bag (using the bagit specification from the library of congress)

  • it can function as a java service for automated machine to machine upload
  • at the backend it checks the files against Pronom using KNB Fido
  • and does some antivirus checking
  • and deposits the files with the metadata provided
