Database Preservation Toolkit | Digital Preservation Matters

The Database Preservation Toolkit uses input and output modules and allows conversion between database formats, including connection to live systems. It allows conversion of live or backed-up databases into preservation formats such as DBML, SIARD, or XML-based formats created for the purpose of database preservation.

This toolkit was part of the RODA project and now has been released as a separate project. The site includes download links and related publications and presentations.
