Archivematica normalizes certain ingested file formats into preservation-friendly formats.

[edit] General

  • Normalization is triggered automatically when the user approves Appraise SIP in the dashboard.
  • The original files are not deleted.
  • When normalized files have the same file extensions as the original, the original files are not overwritten.
  • If the SIP contains files for which there are no default normalization paths, processing of the SIP does not stop.
  • If any files in the SIP fail normalization, the Normalization micro-service shows the error in the dashboard.
  • A copy of the SIP is placed in the failedNormalization directory.
  • The user can approve the SIP by clicking Approve in the dashboard.
  • The user can reject the SIP by clicking Reject. Rejected SIPs are moved to the /rejected directory.
  • A text file named normalizationLog.txt is added to the logs directory in the AIP.
