Outputs from born-digital ingest workflow

Skip to end of metadata
Go to start of metadata
Basic description A workflow tool processes unknown source files through the following steps:
  • Quarantine
  • Virus check
  • Characterisation and metadata extraction
  • Format migration
    Outputs are a ZIP file containing the original files, log files from the processing steps, technical metadata from the characterisation tools in original output format and in PREMIS, the migrated file formats, manifests for all the files, logs, etc. and checksums for everything!
Licensing Various provenance, some internal docs some from deposited collections. Best left closed/unpublished
Institution London School of Economics
Collection expert Ed Fay
List of issues
  • Success of the migrations - need to check whether files which are processed through the workflow are adequate surrogates - need more than a log file indicating success
  • Completeness of the log files - do they contain information about all of the workflow steps?
  • Is the PREMIS XML a) valid; b) a complete record of everything in the log files?
