"Computational Intelligence to Aid Text File Format Identification"

Posted in Artificial Intelligence/Robots, Digital Archives and Special Collections, Digital Curation & Digital Preservation, Research Libraries on September 25th, 2019

Santhilata Kuppili Venkata and Alex Green have self-archived "Computational Intelligence to Aid Text File Format Identification."

Here's an excerpt:

One of the challenges faced in digital preservation is to identify the file types when the files can be opened with simple text editors and their extensions are unknown. The problem gets complicated when the file passes through the test of human readability, but would not make sense how to put to use! The Text File Format Identification (TFFI) project was initiated at The National Archives to identify file types from plain text file contents with the help of computing intelligence models. A methodology that takes help of AI and machine learning to automate the process was successfully tested and implemented on the test data. The prototype developed as a proof of concept has achieved up to 98.58% of accuracy in detecting five file formats.

UK: "Digital Description and Metadata at the National Archives. Digital Strategy"

Posted in Digital Archives and Special Collections, Metadata on May 22nd, 2019

Jone Garmendia has self-archived "Digital Description and Metadata at the National Archives. Digital Strategy."

Here's an excerpt:

Over the last eighteen years, The National Archives of the United Kingdom has delivered a wide range of online catalogues and digital services and is now transforming to deliver an ambitious digital strategy. Our Digital Strategy addresses both the challenge of digital records as well as our goal to become a digital archive by instinct and design. To achieve this goal, we must acknowledge that digital records disrupt archival practice, archival theory and the whole notion of what a professional archivist should be.

"Copyright and Digital Collections: A Data Driven Roadmap for Rights Statement Success"

Posted in Copyright, Digital Archives and Special Collections, Digitization, Research Libraries on April 23rd, 2019

Sara R. Benson and Hannah Stitzlein have published "Copyright and Digital Collections: A Data Driven Roadmap for Rights Statement Success" in ACRL 2019 Proceedings.

Here's an excerpt:

The two questions that ultimately guided this research were: What are the challenges that metadata practitioners face when implementing standardized rights statements? And, for institutions that have implemented standardized rights statements, what made them successful? The authors began the investigation to fill in the practical gaps of the previous studies, and to determine if barriers to implementing standardized rights statements was due to a lack of copyright knowledge and/or access to a copyright professional, or if there were resource barriers limiting the ability to begin implementation.

"Open Social Knowledge Creation and Library and Archival Metadata"

Posted in Digital Archives and Special Collections, Metadata on March 1st, 2019

Dean Seeman and Heather Dean have published "Open Social Knowledge Creation and Library and Archival Metadata" in KULA: Knowledge Creation, Dissemination, and Preservation Studies.

Here's an excerpt:

While libraries and archives have attempted various ways to allow for open and social contributions to their metadata, these have not generally been effective or employed on a large scale, seemingly undercut by technical barriers, including the lack of broad and unfettered access to descriptive systems and standards. In addition, more open and social metadata creation brings into clearer focus the role and value of professional expertise and, at times, the mistrust in uncontrolled terminology within the profession. More open and social metadata production has the potential to be a disruptor in libraries and archives. While both librarians and archivists have preliminarily explored more social descriptive work, and are in theory open to experimentation, very real practical constraints have limited the realization of radically new approaches to metadata production to date. A profession and practice accustomed to constant change—and the promise and possibilities new technologies enable—will open new paths for metadata within libraries and archives.
