Carpenters is an ingest tool that allows archival curators, digitization technicians, and preservation administrators to organize digitized content into hierarchies that preserve the contextual linkages and provenance of the original archival collection. The tool allows for easy batch ingest preparation--creating nested directory structures and automatically organizing files in such a way that the resultant Archivematica-compatible SIP seamlessly replicates the physical arrangement of the original collection. The tool eliminates the need for manually creating directories or moving files, making it ideal for large-scale workflows. The tool also has the capacity to mint package-specific ARKs, allowing the preservation package to have a persistent identifier that connects preservation master files to access objects.
