Bagging Tools


DART provides both a graphical UI and a command-line interface for building bags and uploading them to APTrust. If you're in a hurry, DART is the best way to get started. If you want to build an APTrust ingest workflow through a point-and-click interface and later incorporate that workflow into a set of scripted tasks, DART is also a good choice, as it supports both graphical and comman-line use.

Python BagIt

If you want to roll your own bagger, try the Library of Congress's module, or create a variation of the work already started by the University of Miami or North Carolina State University.
