We use Islandora as our DAMS. In addition to its general repository functionality (ingest, indexing, discovery), we utilize its checksum validation, Bag export, and PREMIS functionality (although PREMIS at this point only really documents the checksum validation events). We are starting to work on automated watch folder ingests for specific kinds of content (e.g. content that is digitized for preservation purposes only, not public access), and on automating export to our distributed preservation storage service.
