Release 0.5 Documentation
The following workflow diagram illustrates the steps required to ingest, store and provide access to digital objects in Archivematica 0.5:
The user documentation for release 0.5 corresponds directly to each activity in the workflow diagram provided above. Where possible, each step is also linked back to the relevant numbered activity in the Archivematica UML Activity Diagrams and OAIS Use Cases. The documentation provides instructions on how these activities can be carried out using the current Archivematica release.
Wherever possible, these activities are assigned to software or technical tools. If it is not possible to automate these functions in the current system iteration, the functions are incorporated into a manual procedure to be carried out by the end user. This ensures that the entire set of requirements are being carried out in the system, which is an integrated whole of software, people and procedures. The goal is to add more detailed requirements along with increasing integration and functionality of the software components with each system iteration.
A printable user guide is now available. This is provided as a convenient printable reference but does not contain the full set of documentation.
