[edit] DIP upload destination

  • By default Archivematica is designed to upload access derivatives and metadata (DIPs) to ICA-AtoM
  • Archivematica can upload to other access systems by switching the upload script
    • create a copy of the script (e.g., (where located?)
    • re-write post commands to match the expected import parameters of the target system
    • change the upload script option in Archivematica (where located?)

[edit] Selecting Normalization Tools

  • Normalization tools used by are based on file extensions. It scans the NormalizationConf folder for EXTENSION.xml documents and if it doesn't find one then it uses the default normalization command. If it does find one, it reads the data inside.
    • Note: file names are capitalized in the extention and lowercase '.xml'.
    • Recomended naming convention for parents: Type and tool; ie 'IMAGES_CONVERT.xml'
    • The default normalizationConf folder is /opt/archivematica/normalizationConf/
  • If a parent is defined, it looks at the parent xml file and ignores all the other values in the current file.
  • All of the %text% are defined in the replacementDic in
