Progress, progress, progress

We are definitely getting there.

If you are interested you can take a gander at this presentation that I put together for the Steering Committee.

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 command line tool in a script
  • 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

and it gets round various upload limits ….
