New BagIt Profile


Cloning an existing BagIt profile can be useful if you're going to create bags on behalf of more than one organization or group. You can set different default values for tags such as Source-Organization or Contact-Email within each cloned profile, and then assign meaningful names such as APTrust Profile for Law Library and APTrust Profile for Engineering Library.

Once you've created a new BagIt profile, you'll want to customize it using the built-in BagIt profile editor.
