Curators Workbench


The Curator’s Workbench is a new collection preparation and work flow tool for digital materials, developed in the summer of 2010 at UNC-Chapel Hill.

The Workbench helps archivists manage files before they are stored in an institutional repository or dark archive. As the files are selected, arranged, and described, a METS file is generated by the software that documents these processes. In addition, checksums and UUIDs are generated for each object and MODS descriptive metadata elements can be mapped to individual objects and folders. The Curator’s Workbench is designed to facilitate the staging of large batches of objects with custom supplied metadata. The Workbench’s crosswalk tool is the key to mapping user-supplied metadata fields to MODS elements.
