Notes

Abstract: This appendix document describes the preparation of archival units residing on a LOCKSS file system that have been designated for packaging and exchange with a non-LOCKSS-based preservation environment-in this case an iRODS grid-based environment. This process was tested with the University of North Texas (UNT) and Chronopolis (SDSC). Further development would be needed to integrate packaging mechanisms for use with other non-iRODS environments. The packaging process is accomplished using a combination of content serving features enabled through the LOCKSS software, a custom script ("lockssbagger") developed by UNT, and BagIt (CDL-LOC) as the primary exchange mechanism. The lockssbagger tool is detailed in Appendix B.
