4.1.7 - The repository shall provide the producer/depositor with appropriate responses at agreed points during the ingest processes.


Logs are created listing file names and relevent SP maintains logs that list relevant information at each point in the ingest process listed below. These are available to the Provider upon request to the producer. If an error occurs the producer is notified.

  • Pull Script - after the SIP is successfully pulled into the loader, the script makes a record of the FTPed files with the file name, size and current date and adds the file name to the FTP downloaded log file. If there is an error, the producer Provider is notified.
  • Preparation of Datasets - if decompression of datasets is unsuccessful, the script adds the file name in to the publisher error log and in to the publisher problem directory. In the case where the file is found to be corrupt, the producer Provider is notified.
  • Ejournals Loader - datasets are converted from the publisher Provider XML/SGML into NLM XML, given a URI and inserted into the ejournals database. Any errors are recorded in a log file and sent to the producer.
