Subject: [Metadatalibrarians] Metadata remediation tools?
I'm currently working on a project for DLF Aquifer to identify,
inventory, and possibly test metadata remediation tools. Aquifer uses
MODS records, but we're also looking at tools designed for Dublin Core
or other types of metadata, or even tools not designed for metadata
but adaptable. I thought i'd turn to the folks on this list to ask to
see if any of you are currently using any metadata tools of this sort
and if you'd be willing to share information about it. I'd also like
to hear about tools that you haven't tried but know about, as well as
anything you may have tried and found not satisfactory.
Feel free to respond either publicly (a discussion would be ideal) or
privately, whichever you want
