| *Issues brainstor* | Issues relating to the cataloging and ongoing management of, and accession to, a large (and growing) image-based collection of digital media files:
* migration of metadata to a cloud-based CONTENTdm asset management system
* best practice relating to accession of material from obsolete carrier formats
* best practice on handling moving image content \\
Automated and scalable tools to manage the following elements of the preservation lifecycle would be extremely useful:
* identification of file formats (and where applicable, authoring software)
* recommendations for file format migration
* Quality Assessment of migrated files
* extraction of file embedded metadata
* Optional OCR of image content, and generation of suggested keywords to assist with item categorisation (possibly via natural language processing) |
