Brief project description:

“The primary aim of the SOURCE project is to create a standard and commonly used repository “plug” which will enable a bulk migration tool to “plug-in” and automatically transfer content from one repository to another … This project will therefore create two new tools to use with digital repositories.”

  • An interoperable ‘plug’ that will allow data to move in/out of the repository in a format that other repositories and services can immediately understand and will therefore enable a commonly understood method for access to the repository.
  • A bulk migration tool that can plug into the common repository plugs of two or more repositories and migrate content interchangeably from one repository to another.
  • Project Final Report
