Resources

We use the term resources for all content such as files, folders, projects, repos, items, etc. It’s a catch all term since different websites name their content differently.

BagIt Tool

BagIt is a hierarchical filesystem format for storing and transferring digital content. PresQT expects all files Uploaded to be zipped files in BagIt format. All downloads from PresQT come in BagIt format as well. PresQT has a tool that will take a zipped file and return it to you in BagIt format.

Getting Authorization Tokens From Partner Sites

An Authorization Token is a unique identifier for a user requesting access to a service.

You can click here for instructions on how to get authorization tokens for each target.

Here are some pre-made ZIP files that are in BagIt format that can be downloaded for use with PresQT.

Verifying Fixity

Fixity means the assurance that a digital file has remained unchanged. We determine file fixity at every step along PresQT actions. More details about how PresQT handles fixity can be found Here.

Download

All downloads come with a file with detailed fixity information named fixity_info.json. This file has an entry for every file involved in the download including each file’s checksum hash at the Source Target and the hash calculated on the PresQT servers before sent to the browser for download. To verify fixity remains, the user must calculate the files’ hashes on their local machine and compare it to the hashes provided.

_images/fixity_1.png

Upload

Fixity during upload can be determined by inspecting the PRESQT_FTS_METADATA.json file included with every upload. The attribute failedFixityInfo in this file will contain the details if the file being uploaded has failed fixity.

_images/fixity_2.png

Transfer

Fixity during Transfer can be determined the same as Upload by inspecting the PRESQT_FTS_METADATA.json file in the destination target.

Verifying Keyword Enhancement

See Here for Keyword Enhancement details.

Keyword Enhancement As A Service

Keyword Enhancement as a service will write a new entry to the PRESQT_FTS_METADATA.json file in the target. The action entry for keyword enhancement will say exactly which keywords were added during this enhancement.

_images/kw_1.png

Keyword Enhancement During Transfer

Keyword Enhancement during a transfer will work similarly to Keyword Enhancement As A Service. The difference is, for the destination target, the details of keyword enhancement will be located in the transfer action entry instead of there being a new action entry for keyword enhancement.
