Metadata Remediation Tools

Future Directions in Metadata Remediation for Metadata Aggregators by Greta de Groat describes tools used by digital libraries on metadata aggregations.
This report will detail the current state of the art of remediation efforts, describe the additional services that aggregators could offer if the metadata were there to support them, and identify the types of tools that are needed to remediate the metadata in order to achieve the desired level of service. The report is aimed toward designers of metadata aggregations, including programmers, project planners, and metadata specialists. Knowledge domains such as computer science, informatics, information retrieval, information science, and library science are within the scope of the report. It is assumed that remediation efforts will be focused on working with the metadata itself, as many aggregators do not have access to the raw digital item.
