Integrations: Digital Preservation Systems

Some ArchivesSpace institutions make use of digital preservation systems for ingests. The descriptive information in ArchivesSpace should be able to aid in appraisal and arrangement, and can replicate this data in digital preservation systems. Furthermore, institutions can write “location” information for digital objects back to ArchivesSpace. In fact, a number of digital preservation integrations already exist.

(Including the Rockefeller workflow). Due to the nature of the integration involving three systems, Artefactual does rely on the archivists at Bentley to test and report problems. (The Bentley is also active in fixing issues as community contributors). Artefactual tests the ArchivesSpace integration but does not test the DSpace integration.
