Hosted by Metropolitan New York Library Council, the Digital Preservation Interest Group is an inclusive group designed to facilitate growth in the communities forming around initiatives to preserve a wide array of digital assets (software, multimedia and websites) using an array of methods & tools. We seek to support professionals in libraries, archives and museums engaged in digital preservation and web archiving, as well as students and others new to the field. With meetings and presentations held throughout the year we will provide a venue for professional development and a forum for open discussion of common interest.
In this talk, Shawn Averkamp of AVP will demo a number of tools that AVP has developed to help you automate and streamline your digital preservation workflows, including utilities for fixity checks, embedded metadata, and metadata quality control.
