PBCore Development Priorities

At the WGBH Media Library and Archives, we have embarked on an NEH-funded project to develop tools and resources around the PBCore, a metadata schema and data model designed to describe and manage audiovisual collections.

Based on feedback from a previous survey to users and potential users, we’ve generated a list of tools and resources that previous respondents indicated would be valuable to the archival and broadcasting communities. Now, we’d like your help prioritizing them. We’d really appreciate it if you would take a few moments to fill out the following short survey, which should take at most 5 minutes of your time.

* 1. Please rank each data management resource based on how valuable you think it will be

  This resource would definitely be valuable and I have a current need for it This resource would definitely be valuable, though I do not have a current need for it This resource might be valuable, though I do not have a current need for it I don't think this resource would be valuable I don't understand what this is
Updated PBCore Spreadsheet Templates - spreadsheet templates with headers formatted to PBCore and drop-down controlled vocabulary menus for data entry
PBCore XML Record Creation Tool - a web interface to enter PBCore-compliant data and export XML

Updated PBCore XML Validator - a tool that will validate or report errors in PBCore XML documents
