Packaging Orphaned Collections for Long Term Preservation
Da Costa, Joel F. (2010) Packaging Orphaned Collections for Long Term Preservation. Technical Report CS10-02-00, Department of Computer Science, University of Cape Town.
This report gives an introduction and background to the area and necessity of archiving online collections. The goal of the research was to develop a tool able to archive metadata and data from OAI-PMH compliant repositories effectively. After running tests it was seen that while the metadata harvesting and archiving was effective, the data harvesting needed more work due to the brute force nature of link extraction.
