This report was prepared for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC). It outlines the current state of and future conversion roadmap for the content captured by Blue Angel Technologies during the time period of 2002-2006 for TSLAC as part of the Texas Resource and Information Locator Service (TRAIL). This document will give a history of the data stored at the University of North Texas Libraries and information about the makeup of the collection as it exists in 2011, including the physical layout on disk, number of files, and MIME types. Finally, this document outlines a conversion path from the current file based organization system to a standard archival data format for inclusion in a future TRAIL discovery interface.
This article discusses metadata analysis tools, processes, and methodologies aimed at helping to focus limited quality control resources on the areas of the collection where they might have the most benefit.
