Thank you for your interest in the public review of the ETD Lifecycle Management Tools, part of an IMLS grant to research the curation of ETDs.
We are testing 7 tools for ETD Lifecycle Management:
- Virus Checking - Submitted ETD's may contain viruses that could damage the entire collection if not screened in advance.
- ClamAV - An open-source command-line utility to scan files for viruses.
- File Format Identification - Knowledge of the formats used in an ETD can help a program determine whether the package adheres to program requirements and what software will be necessary to access the data in the future.
- DROID - A Java-based open-source graphical utility to identify a file's format.
- FITS - An open-source command-line utility to identify a file's format by bundling several other format identification tools.
- file - A system-level command-line utility to identify a file's format.
- JHOVE2 - A Java-based open-source command-line utility to identify a file's format.
- Preservation Metadata - Actions taken during curation should be recorded in order to track their success and failure.
- PREMIS Event Service - A Python Django-based open-source utility to record curation actions performed by software as preservation metadata.
- ETD Submission - Submissions systems allow for standardized metadata collection and provide an entry point into an ETD workflow.
- ETD Drop - A Python Django-based open-source web interface to accept ETD components and bundle them into packages with fixity and format metadata.
