PBCore Tool Quest

Written by Jack Brighton on Tuesday, December 02, 2008

Back in 2005 I became somewhat obsessed with cataloging media on the job here at WILL Public Media. As the website manager, people would do things like hand me a videotape and say "can you put this on the web?" But what's on the tape? It became clear producers had no clue about the importance of recording actual information about their productions. Meanwhile I started learning about metadata and controlled vocabularies, and some of the cool things we could do with structured data on the web. This lead me directly to PBCore as the theoretical metadata standard for public broadcasting and beyond. If producers and stations could create PBCore-compliant XML records for their content, we could develop tools for automated exchange of deep information about media, and the media essence as well.

But we can't do much if nobody catalogs their stuff. So the question became what tools to use? Working with a graduate assistant from Library Science here at Illinois (the great Jimi Jones!), we embarked on a PBCore tool quest.
