Abstract

This paper provides a hands-on report of the ingest workflow of hand-held media in the library stacks of the Leibniz Information Centre for Economics. It describes inspection, selection, data carrier migration, the securing of the original structure, and ingest into the Rosetta Archive as they have been practiced by the library since 2010. The description includes some information about the content to be archived, the file formats, the quality of the data and related preservation issues, the tools used, the lessons learned and future work to improve the workflow. Furthermore, a brief overview of current best practice workflows is given.
