Custom tools and scripts

Over the years the team has built up their supporting tools and scripts for their own use to handle digital preservation matters. 

All scripts are hosted on GitHub (https://github.com/NLNZDigitalPreservation (external link) ). The following links provide a collection of custom tools and scripts we use:

 

marc_extractor (external link) Tool for creating short MARC records by extracting Dublin Core metadata from epub files
DROID_comparer (external link) Couple of python scripts to facilitate the comparing of DROID/PRONOM log files
Safe mover (external link)  : Python script to move files from A to B. Creating file hash and grabbing file OS metadata along the way

 

Please note that we do not provide support for these custom tools or scripts. These tools and scripts are created for our customised environment, and will check for the required components and dependencies before running. We provide these scripts, without restrictions or guarantees, with the hope that these might be useful for others applying similar methods.
