Jessi and all,

The Audio Technical Metadata Collector (ATMC), based on the Audio Engineering Society's emerging technical and digital provenance metadata standards, is in daily use in our audio preservation system at Indiana University. It is also used by at least one other university in the U.S. that is serving as a test site. We are actively developing it further for public release, and are pointing towards release in spring or summer, 2010.

Hello all,

I'm wondering if anyone has any news or information on the part of Harvard
and Indiana's Sound Directions project that they called the Audio Technical
Metadata Collector (ATMC).  The Sound Directions site just says that these
tools will be "released at a later date".  I think this could be especially
useful for a contract project I am working on with a local school to assess,
preserve, and catalog their audio and visual materials.  Any help would be
