Meta-morphosis: building a framework for electronic ingest

As more and more people and organisations create their archives in electronic form, we have recently been spending a lot of time working on the best way to accept and store them.

The new Meta-morphosis project has been funded by the JISC Transformations Programme and follows on from two recent pilot projects – the donation of the General Teaching Council’s electronic archive and the JISC-funded Digital Directorate project, which looked at the Institute’s own electronic material. We will be taking the next year to create a standard set of procedures and documentation for the effective accession of new electronic archives, which will allow us to develop our ditial archive repository so that (in time) donors will be able to add new accessions themselves.
