Topic 1


Topic 2

  • Additional tag file
    • XML file with datacite metadata
    • Put datacite version in filename?
  • Recommend structuring? -> otherwise hard to interpret other’s bags
    • Difficult as this would break existing implementations
    • Too much effort for platform developers
    • Try to get information from elsewhere (e.g. profile)
  • Add platform information (type, version)
  • Maybe add separate file for providing schema of other MD files
    • Map metadata file in bag to schema URL
    • Allows quick determination whether the content can be understood or not
  • Add folder containing ‘our’ information to avoid filename collisions
    • Additional folders might be ‘forbidden’ by BagIt
    • Add files otherwise
  • Ask David for Slack Group invitation


Topic 3

  • Next meeting at 30 August 2017
    • This time at 1 PM!
