Abstract/Overview: George Washington University Libraries developed a lightweight preservation storage environment that relies on the Simple Audit Tool, a command-line tool built at GW to log and monitor file deposits. This tool was built with GW’s risk portfolio in mind, where the potential for human error and documentation gaps were identified as the highest risks to preservation. The Simple Audit tool was designed by GW former developer Justin Littman to be the simplest approach to minimizing these targeted risks. 

Join us to learn how the Simple Audit Tool works, how GW uses the tool in practice in its preservation workflows, requirements for use, and comparisons to other tools and strategies.
