Version 0.2 of MDQC has been released for free download. MDQC is a desktop application that reads the embedded metadata of a file or a directory and compares it against a set of rules defined by the user, verifying that the technical and administrative specs of the files are correct. This automates and minimizes the time needed to QC large batches of digitized assets, increasing the efficiency of managing digitization projects. Updates to Version 2.0:
• Improve dependency detection for OSX
• Improve reporting output
The Mac and Windows versions of MDQC are available for free download on our tools page at https://www.avpreserve.com/avpsresources/tools/. You can also read case studies on the use of MDQC in the newly published article Two Open-Source Tools for Digital Asset Metadata Management by Alex Duryee, Digital & Metadata Preservation Specialist, and Bertram Lyons, Senior Consultant, available for download on our Papers and Presentations page.
