Digital Preservation Tool Guides

Digital preservation tool guides

The guides available on this page were created to assist others as they start to explore tools to help them with their digital preservation and processing work.  Some of these tools will assist you with ingest processes, others help to cleaning up what you have so you can better understand what you have and can help you preserve only what you want.  Tools capture metadata that assist with preservation decisions.  

The guides have been categorized, but many tools are multi-purpose.  Take a look and see what the tools can do for you.  

Guides have been divided into the following categories:

  • Analysis tools
  • Bulk processing tools
  • Checksum tools
  • Tools that find duplicate files
  • Metadata tools
