1) Has any work been started on software for the creation of
METS documents? For browsing?
2) I am just beginning a short (7 week) study at NASA-Goddard in Maryland
to give METS a trial run in an engineering environment. My working
hypothesis is that METS will hold up well and that most of the
problems that come up will be of the kind that are worked out in
metadata extensions. The study will be of service to the METS
community by (hopefully) demonstrating that METS is appropriate
for the kind of digital "things" that engineers might be
interested in archiving.
