macaw-book-metadata-tool

A tool for collecting page-level metadata of digitized book-like objects to share with the Internet Archive.

Macaw performs three major tasks in the process of digitizing a book-like item:

  • Import and management of the images from the scanner or camera.
  • Collection of the page-level metadata that describes the physical aspects of the page.
  • Post-processing and exporting/uploading the digital book to other systems.

Macaw is built in PHP using CodeIgniter and uses PostgreSQL for the database. Further requirements can be found in the wiki.

There is a mailing list for Macaw located at Google Groups: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/macaw-discussion
