Meeting the Challenge: Digital Content Transfer Tools

From a Post:

The Library of Congress has developed new tools to transfer large quantities of digital content. During 2008, the Library used these tools to add approximately 80 terabytes to its digital collections.

As described in the Library of Congress's video, Bagit: Transferring Content for Digital Preservation, the sender of a digital collection prepares for the transfer by packaging the collection and making it accessible for the Library to download. The Library prefers data packaged into standardized "bags," a means of organizing and containing data for transfer as described in the BagIt specification.
