We gathered in the ballroomand had an active conversation about the philosophy of keeping archives in a reduced set of file formats with standardized metadata. We reviewed directory structures and METS collection level details.For a future reduction of coding and costs we advise the reduction of file formats (normalization) on ingestion into a structured archive. Justin from Artefactual shared their philosophy and thoughts on use of METS collection level file contents. Historically systems like NDNP are gate keeper validation systems and we should be building digital archive creation systems. Build to a standard under code control rather than code to check hand made datasets.
