ETD Lifecycle Management Tools

The project team developed and documented software tools to be used as micro-services to assist in ETD lifecycle management. Micro-services are single-function services that can be used individually or incorporated into existing repository workflows. The tools were openly licensed for use and modification through the University of North Texas Libraries and were distributed freely in late 2014 after a public review period. The accompanying documentation (ETD Lifecycle Management Tools Manual) was freely disseminated under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 4.0 license.

PREMIS Event Service
PREMIS Event Service is a Django application for managing PREMIS Events in a structured, centralized, and searchable manner. The purpose of this microservice is to provide a straightforward way to send PREMIS-formatted events to a central location to be stored and retrieved. In this fashion, it can serve as an event logger for any number of services that happen to wish to use it. PREMIS is chosen as the underlying format for events due to its widespread use in the digital libraries/digital archives worlds.

ETD Drop
ETD Drop is a Django project+app providing a simple web application for submitting Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs).
