Preparation for Testing Begins

February 12, 2014 News, Technical

Eight member institutions have volunteered to test the APTrust administrative content management interface as well as to develop a methodology for creating bags using the BagIt protocol.  The CCAG ingest volunteers are:

  • Columbia University
  • North Carolina State University
  • University of Chicago
  • University of Cincinnati
  • University of Connecticut
  • University of Maryland
  • University of Miami
  • University of Virginia

A joint meeting of the content and technology groups was held February 6th to discuss shared bagging strategy.  Once that strategy is established, the volunteers will begin ingesting content into APTrust in March and April.  Stay tuned for further developments! The Content and Certification Advisory Group (CCAG) is charged to study and make recommendations to the Board in the areas of content selection, workflows, metadata, certification, rights management, and what is practical and achievable.  It seeks the advice of the Technology Advisory Group for technology matters that impact content and convenes working groups to achieve aligned goals.
