Abstract
This project is a collaboration between the IUBL Library Technology group, University Archives, and IU Communications/Kelley School of Business. Utilizing existing tools such as BitCurator and ExifTool, we will analyze metadata associated with large born-digital media collections. This analysis will provide the groundwork for developing a sustainable workflow for the ingest and long-term preservation of digital objects within the Indiana University-Bloomington Libraries Fedora/Hydra repository infrastructure.
Use of FutureSystems
I need to store around 5TB of content so that I can quickly run analysis tools on it.
Scale of Use
I want to store 5TB of content and run analysis tools periodically. Analysis should not be too time-intensive, and generally will only be run 1-2 times per week.
