UM digitization output 0.9
Jump to navigation Jump to search
If an institution has created master and derivative digitized objects, Archivematica can recognize the relationships between them and generate a DIP from access copies included in the transfer.
- Create a structured transfer directory. The structured directory in Archivematica is the basic configuration of the SIP. It contains three subdirectories: logs, metadata, objects. The objects directory contains the digital objects that are to be preserved. The metadata directory contains the checksum, the original transfer METS file, and a submissionDocumentation subfolder, which can be used for transfer forms, donation agreements or any other documents that relate to the acquisition of the records. The logs folder will eventually contain logs generated when processing the transfer in Archivematica. You can create subdirectories within objects if desired.
- In the objects directory, create a subdirectory called access (no capitalization).
- Place the master digital objects in the objects directory.
- Place the access copies in the access directory. Note: the master and access copies must have the same filename, although the extensions can be different. For example, image-1.tif (master) and image-1.jpg (access).
- Process the transfer.
- At the normalization step, choose "Do not normalize".
- Archivematica will keep the master digital objects in the AIP and generate a DIP from the copies in the access folder.
- If there are also service copies (for example, intermediate-state video formats that may be edited versions of the master copies), in the objects directory create a subdirectory called service (no capitalization). Place the service copies in this subdirectory. As with the access copies, the filenames must match those of the master objects.
- Process the transfer as before, choosing "Do not normalize".
- The service copies will be retained along with the master objects in the AIP and Archivematica will capture their derivation relationships in the AIP METS file.
- A sample digitization output transfer is included in Archivematica's sampledata: sampledata/SampleTransfers/DigitizationOutput.
