Digital Resources – Webharvesting and e-Born Content Archiving is a project focused on harvesting, processing and storing of digital online sources as an integral part of the cultural heritage of the Slovak Republic by building an adequate hardware and application infrastructure.

Archiving of Electronic Publications

Feature of our system is that both websites and Born Digital content (electronic serials and monographs) are archived. ISSN/ISBN is a precondition for saving to the archive. Main points:

  • National ISSN Centre – cooperation from the very beginning (2015)
  • The Slovak  National  ISSN Database – the source of e-serials titles
  • archiving is a preparation for the future Legal Deposit Act for born digital content

DROID is a software tool developed by The National Archives to perform automated batch identification of file formats. Developed by our Digital Preservation department as part of its broader digital preservation activities, DROID is designed to meet the fundamental requirement of any digital repository to be able to identify the precise format of all stored digital objects, and to link that identification to a central registry of technical information.
