Glynn Edwards, Peter Chan and I have finally finished our first working draft of a forensic lab workflow using floppy diskettes from the Stephen Jay Gould collection. This first workflow or use case has been very challenging to put together. Throughout this process we’ve endeavored to make our diagram easy to understand while still capturing the operational steps and software applications that are currently being utilized by our digital archivist. We’re still in the midst of evaluating software so it is expected that some of the listed applications will be replaced. For example, we are currently developing a FileMaker database to capture technical metadata about the physical media (media type, format, etc.). My hope is that in the coming twelve months this will be replaced with a more robust webform built by our developers that more closely integrates some of the workflow steps with the operations that occur in our other digitization labs. In the meantime, please consider the following workflow diagram as a first draft that will likely undergo many revisions in the coming months.
