Selecting the files for testing

Working through the process of acquiring the files that we will test in Planets.

One problem so far  – file names do not need to be unique in DSpace so I added a ‘file exists’ test when acquiring the 120 microsoft word files  and several of them have a file name that is the same as an existing file.  This is partly caused by duplication of the files across multiple different records.  For now I am saving that file with a different name but need to think of a better way  before starting to acquire the 3,500 pdf files – maybe a subdirectory per item ?

Also an action for me  – we need to start thinking now about the metadata we need to create for each item to describe the preservation actions taken.
