Learning outcomes (by the end of the training event attendees will be able to):

  1. Distinguish between different file types and identify the requirements for characterising each of them.
  2. Carry out a number of identification, characterisation, and duplication detection experiments on example files.
  3. Critically evaluate characterisation and identification tools and assess their advantages and disadvantages when used in different scenarios.
  4. Compare and contrast the differences in running characterisation and identification tools both stand-alone and within workflows.
  5. Envisage a system that combines workflows with identification, characterisation and validation tools to suit a variety of scenarios.
  6. Conduct an in-depth analysis of large volumes of identification and characterisation data and find representative sample records suitable for preservation planning experiments.
