BagIt File Packaging Format

BagIt is a hierarchical file packaging format for the exchange of generalized digital content. A "bag" has just enough structure to safely enclose descriptive "tags" and a "payload" but does not require any knowledge of the payload's internal semantics. This BagIt format should be suitable for disk-based or network-based storage and transfer.
