File Format Support
CTDA is committed to providing long-term access to all deposited content by applying best practices for digital preservation while also acknowledging the complexities involved in preserving digital information. CTDA will work within evolving “best practices” to be responsible stewards and will work to preserve the metadata and supported digital and media objects. CTDA will research the “state of the art” preservation practices and offer preservation ideas and recommendations. Choices regarding preservation will be based on CTDA’s community demand. Assessments will be continuously undertaken regarding ongoing technical feasibilities and digital repository “best practices.”
Any format can be deposited into CTDA. However, CTDA through Islandora provides services such as the creation of derivatives and technical metadata extraction for the following formats: doc, docx, ods, txt, html, sxc, csv, tsv, odp, sxi, ppt, pptx, xls, xlsx, warc, PDF, tiff/tif, jp2, jpg/jpeg, png, bmp, wav, mp3, ogg, mp4, mov, qt, m4v, and avi.
