The Curator’s Workbench: Ingest Preparation Tool

The Curator’s Workbench is an open source ingest preparation tool developed at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. It stages material to a server and then material can then be arranged and described. It was created to solve problems faced in submission work flow with the hope that it can dramatically speed up processing for large collections of electronic files with custom metadata. Check out the technical details on the Carolina Digital Repository Blog:
