Transport Neutral Digital Object Replication
This paper discusses digital object replication. The University of North Texas (UNT) Libraries has implemented a simple transport neutral digital object replication strategy in its production digital repository infrastructure. This strategy is built with the same ideals as other Curation Micro-Services, in respect to lightweight, software independent specifications coupled to provide a set of services for digital repositories, this approach to replication has allowed the UNT Libraries the flexibility of multiple storage infrastructures and the reassurance that objects are being fully validated as they are replicated throughout the repository. Building on standard Web technologies and methodologies like the Atom Publishing Protocol and REST, coupled with digital library technologies such as Checkm and BagIt, a transport neutral replication strategy allows institutions to meet the increasing demands on their services while keeping the overall costs low by allowing the use of a variety of storage platforms. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc36293/

Lessons Learned: Digitization of Cooke County Ledgers
This paper describes a grant project to digitize Cooke County, Texas ledgers.
