Building a digital preservation toolkit for digital curators

Building a digital preservation toolkit for digital curators 

In the context of digital information, many curation tasks need to be performed to ensure continuous access to information. As digital assets grow in size and number, tools must be deployed to ease on the execution of common digital preservation tasks and therefore making the whole digital preservation process more manageable.

In the SCAPE project, a set of preservation action tools were surveyed, evaluated and selected for use as part of preservation plans to be deployed in large-scale digital preservation scenarios (see http://tinyurl.com/c68qns6 for the full list of surveyed action tools). Examples of preservation action tools are file format converters. Selected preservation action tools were developed by many people and/or organizations, resulting in very distinct applications, with different ways of being invoked, passing parameters, handle errors, etc.
