ECU Born-Digital Archives Project

22 Aug 2022 13:26 | Anonymous

East Carolina University is pleased to announce the completion of a year-long project to set up a born-digital archiving workflow.

First, we’ve got an in-house app to register and track accessions through bagging, processing, and access.

Second, we set up bagger to bag the accessions.

Third, we have a virtual machine to run ClamAV and Autopsy for minimally processing files.

Fourth, we set up access through our existing Digital Collections platform. For example, see https://digital.lib.ecu.edu/64445. Born-digital files are also linked from the finding aid.

Finally, we created a user flow diagram for in-house reference as well as for sharing with those who want to geek out with us!
