Digital Object Management

For much of this, the process will be to identify the informal way we comply, formalize it and move it closer to the repository when possible. The "trusted repository" consists of pre-ingest routines, HPSS, backed-up spreadsheets and other workflow documents on elm, wiki documentation of collections, xubmit, fedora, and our purl resolution service.

B1. Ingest: acquisition of content

B1.1 Repository identifies properties it will preserve for digital objects.

This is largely specified on the wiki, in historical ingest routines in SVN, and increasingly by using better content models.

B1.2 Repository clearly specifies information that needs to be associated with digital material at the time of its deposit (i.e., SIP)

This is largely specified on the wiki, in historical ingest routines in SVN, and increasingly by using better content models.

B1.3 Repository has mechanisms to authenticate the source of all materials

B1.4 Repository's ingest process verifies each submitted object (i.e., SIP) for completeness and correctness as specified in B1.2

ImageProc verifies image integrity.
The ingest routine chokes requiring manual intervention if a critical file for a given collection is missing, misnamed or invalid.
Before any ingest files are removed from disk, they are compared with the data pulled off of fedora.

B1.5 Repository obtains sufficient physical control over the digital objects to preserve them.

B1.6 Repository provides producer/depository with appropriate responses at predefined points during the ingest processes.

Image processing/HPSS processing sends an e-mail for success and for failure?
Automatic ingest sends out a report.
Users from the lilly, routinely verify their ingested objects by requesting the PDF as a PURL.

B1.7 Repository can demonstrate when preservation responsibility is formally accepted for the contents of the submitted data objects

The final ingest of a collection, indicated by the removal of the ingest files from the to-fedora directory indicates this, as well as when a file is put into the Archiver database.

B1.8 Repository has contemporaneous records of actions and administration processes that are relevant to preservation (Ingest: content acquisition).
