SFU MoveIt Transfer Tool

SFU MoveIt is a small desktop utility built by SFU Archives and SFU Library to package digital objects in a standardized format to facilitate transfer of digital materials to the Archives. SFU MoveIt uses the BagIt standard originally developed by the US Library of Congress and the California Digital Library. It packages digital objects on a local machine into a standard BagIt container ("Bag") and captures a small amount of metadata, including transfer credentials and checksums. The package is then ready for transfer by upload to SFU Vault, the university's cloud storage service. SFU MoveIt also produces a contents listing (manifest) that can be used later to help retrieve files previously transferred.

There are separate Windows and Mac OS versions. For the Mac version, an uninstaller is also available. For detailed installation and user instructions, see the SFU MoveIt User Guide.
