Project – CAIRO

Project Name: Complex Archive Ingest for Repository Objects

Short Project Name: CAIRO

Brief project description:
“This project will develop a tool for ingesting complex collections of born-digital materials, with basic descriptive, preservation and relationship metadata, into a preservation repository. The proposal is based on needs identified by the JISC-funded Paradigm project and the Wellcome Library’s Digital Curation in Action project and is a key building block in our strategy to develop digital repository architectures which can support the development of digital collections. This tool will be tested on personal digital collections already accessioned by the partner institutions and will provide an open-source tool for use by others with similar requirements. The project will produce technical and user support documentation and promote the tool with relevant audiences. “
