SCAT - "Scat is Curation And Trust"

SCAT is a digital curation workbench tool for archivists in local government archive services which enables learning by "doing".

More information is available from "Digital curation presentations and papers".

SCAT is being developed using perl in a Linux (Fedora 10 onwards and Xubuntu) environment.  It wraps several digital curation applications in a single graphical user interface.  SCAT includes the GAip application which is therefore no longer maintained as a standalone application.

SCAT is also being made available as an Oracle VirtualBox appliance.  This makes SCAT portable since by using VirtualBox it can be easily installed in a MicrosoftXP desktop environment.

The software is freely available (go to "Software").  It is hoped that others can experiment with SCAT and more effectively join in digital curation developments. 

Feedback is welcomed.
