220.127.116.11 - The repository shall have a procedure(s) for identifying those Information Properties that it will preserve.
Scholars Portal identifies and validates Information Properties that it will preserve, by using a number tools through the FITS software package.
- the DROID tool identifies formats during the SIP ingestion process where a file format is associated with each file.
- JHOVE is a tool used to further format-specific identification, validation and characterization of the file.
- when a file format is identified, where possible, the file is linked to the format's entry in PRONOM, the British National Archive's format registry.
The loader script, customized for each producer, identifies the object metadata included at the time of ingestion.
