Class: Free Tools for Digital Preservation: Metadata Manipulation

May 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

This two hour session will provide a hands-on overview of tools that extract, embed and monitor metadata into digital preservation-quality files. The class will begin with tools that can extract technical metadata from digital files and export them into XML formats. After that, the class will go through the installation and basic implementation of embedded metadata tools for both still image and audiovisual files. Finally, the class will end with tools that can be used to perform quality control on metadata.

All tools demonstrated in the class will be freely available so they can be used after the class at no further cost to the institutions. Tools demonstrated will include MediaInfo, ExifTool, ExifTool GUI, Data Accessioner, BWF MetaEdit, mp3tag, and MDQC.
