Now our collections partners can use them as well for their own metadata auditing while creating or revising collections. These tools make it easy to examine the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) provision of metadata from your digital assets management system, so you can check it for conformance to MWDL and DPLA standards. They display the OAI data in an attractive, easy-to-read format, so you don't have to pore through records one by one or look at hundreds of lines of tagged XML.
Go to MWDL's site for the DPLA OAI Aggregation Tools and speed up your metadata auditing! So far, I have adapted them for use with the Qualified Dublin Core metadata format, specifically CONTENTdm's "oai_qdc". We will release them for simple Dublin Core ("oai_dc") soon.
