New Video in BBC Archives Series Looks at “New Kinds of Metadata”
From the BBC Internet Blog:
In the sixth and final part of the film about R&D’s work in archive technologies we take an in depth look at the advanced work exploring new kinds of metadata. Essential for finding content in the digital era, metadata is often unavailable or hard to work with for older archive material. By using advanced digital analysis techniques, and harnessing the capabilities of hundreds of human volunteers, the archive R&D team is developing tools that will keep the treasures of the archive at the fingertips of program makers and, hopefully, the public, for years to come.
