OSSArcFlow Guide to Documenting Born-Digital Archival Workflows

The purpose of the Guide to Documenting Born-Digital Archival Workflows is to encourage and assist collecting institutions of all shapes, sizes, and types to begin documenting their born-digital workflows. In our experience, both through the OSSArcFlow project and in consultation with many collecting institutions, the vast majority of today’s born-digital archiving activity is not well … Continue reading OSSArcFlow Guide to Documenting Born-Digital Archival Workflows

OSSArcFlow: Investigating, Modeling, and Synchronizing a Range of Archival Workflows for Born-Digital Content. As-Is Workflows: In the fall of 2017, the project team worked with partners at each institution to mockup a visual representation of their current workflow activities. Representing a “snapshot in time” these documents show how a diverse group of institutions are using OSS tools in their workflows to curate born-digital content. They also provide an essential starting point for synthesizing and comparing both the gaps and overlaps that currently exist between common OSS tools and environments.
