Accessing the Inaccessible: Capturing and Re-Purposing Metadata Prior to Digitization to Ensure Adequate Description and Access
Description: Presented at the 2018 Texas Conference on Digital Libraries. This presentation provides a detailed look at how University of North Texas Libraries' Special Collections embarked upon a large-scale digitization project involving a portion of the highly requested A/V materials from the NBC-5/KXAS Television News collection, using a third-party vendor. This project included the use of snapshots to help repurpose metadata, then linked data tools in Excel and WikiMedia to create access to tape content titles.
