Ingest Process

Today, I have learned how to use ingest tool for digital preservation. Using ingest tool, data can be transferred from digital content, such as floppy disk, optical media, into the repository with metadata. This migration process is a part of submission information packages. In addition, the ingest process analyzes data and identifies the sensitive information. Moreover, today I attended a presentation on ‘Sharing Collections through Digital Databases’ by Dr. Mia Ridge, British Library Digital Curator. It seems that they share similar techniques for digital curation as we do. However, I found her presentation informative!
