Custom tools and scripts
Our supporting tools and scripts
Over the years we have built supporting tools and scripts for our digital preservation work. Below are links to some of the custom tools and scripts we use.
We provide these scripts, without restrictions or guarantees, with the hope that they might be useful for others applying similar methods.
Please note that we do not provide support for these custom tools or scripts. These tools and scripts are created for our customised environment. If you would like to use them you will need to check for the required components and dependencies before you run them.

marc-extractor — creates short MARC records by extracting Dublin Core metadata from epub files
Compare DROID/PRONOM log files
DROID_comparer — a couple of python scripts to compare DROID/PRONOM log files
Safe mover — a Python script to move files from A to B creating file hashes and extracting file OS metadata along the way.
All our scripts are hosted on GitHub.
