Bagit Specification for Transferring Digital Content

Previous: Unicode 6.0 Released Next: Avro: a Format for Big Data

10/17/2010

A new file format for digital preservation:

The Library of Congress and the California Digital Library have jointly developed a format for transferring digital content. The BagIt format specification is based on the concept of quot;bag it and tag it,quot; where digital content is packaged (the bag) along with a small amount of machine-readable text (the tag) to help automate the content’s receipt, storage and retrieval. There is no software to install.
