Opening Up the Archives: Part 6- New Kinds of Metadata
In the sixth and final part of the film about R&D's work in archive technologies we take an in depth look at the advanced work exploring new kinds of metadata. Essential for finding content in the digital era, metadata is often unavailable or hard to work with for older archive material. By using advanced digital analysis techniques, and harnessing the capabilities of hundreds of human volunteers, the archive R&D team is developing tools that will keep the treasures of the archive at the fingertips of program makers and, hopefully, the public, for years to come.

And thanks again to our camera op, director and editor, the estimable David Allen. Gentlemen, we thank you.
