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.
