Certain Developments Required –Shift to Fedora 2.1 (complete) –Integration (Authentication)

Checksumming) (complete) User-Interface Development Testing and Final Ingest Release 1: Transparent Dissemination of Digitised Still Images (May 2007)
Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting Virtua-Vital Integration Aim: Management of traditional and digital assets through a single integrated system Integration Provides: –Central Point of Access –Shared Methods of Management –Most Effective Use of Existing Skill Sets –Seamless Access
Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting Integrated Metadata Metadata exists in only one part of the system (mostly) –Descriptive Metadata in Virtua –Administrative Metadata in VITAL (eg. Rights, Preservation) –Some Descriptive Metadata in VITAL for administrative discovery –FUTURE: Synchronisation?
Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting Linkages Every Vital Object is linked to a Virtua MARC Record (at some level) –Virtua VITAL: Handle in 856 of a Holdings record $3 C09663 $q image/jpeg $u $y Gweld yr eitem = View the item –VITAL Virtua: Attribute in METS Document
Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting Integrated Access Transparent to the End User –Seamlessness with iPortal User shouldn’t realise they’ve switched from Virtua to VITAL. Carrying over of relevant session, rights and searching information. Developments –‘Direct’ Access Google, Handles IMG tags? Rights Managed

Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting Policies & Enforcement Object Policies –METS = Policy, FEDORA = Enforcement –Eg. Rights: –FEDORA uses XACML (eXtensible Access Control Markup Language) to enforce rights on one or a group of objects within the repository. Rights are based on XACML statements constructed from the METS:Rights from METS document. Repository-Wide Policies –Every Object had METS –Every Object is linked to a MARC record –Every Object has DC (OAI/Internal Use)
Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting Ingest Start with MARC record –Used to create Dublin Core data –Shows location of content (through 856) –Creates the METS METS used as SIP MARC updated with new holdings (with handle in 856)
OAIS Ingest Creation of SIP MARC Record Descriptive Information Default METS Objects Content MARC to METS Program Generate SIP Submission information PackageIngest Ingest Ready METS SIP Objects Content
Vital Implementation: BL-NLW-Tessella Ingest Meeting SIP (METS) METS Header: –History of METS document Descriptive Meta Data –mods on digital copy –link to dc for original –premis details on original file name –relationship information to other objects in Fedora Administrative Meta Data –mix technical meta data on images –dc legacy technical data –premis admin data including checksums, and relationships between data streams –link to MARC record in Virtua Digital Providence –List of actions that have occurred to the object –List of agents who ran the software / versions of the software used File Sec –List of Data streams linking above sections to particular data streams Structural Map –First one allows display via a METS viewer type application –Subsequent ones are linked to Disseminators Behaviour Section –Links objects to their dissemination
