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 MySQL for the database. Further requirements can be found in the wiki.
