Sustaining Metadata Quality in Large-Scale Production Domains

In this talk, we will explore how we changed persons and organisations from uncontrolled metadata to a controlled vocabulary during the migration of metadata from an old MAM system to a new in-house built MAM.

Anna Abenius started at SVT Archive (Swedish Television) in 2003. From 2015 onward, she has been a coordinator of metadata in the MAM and, during the last years, also of the SKOS thesaurus system that is going live in spring 2023.

Cathrine Kjær Knudsen works as an archive researcher assisting productions with archive footage and rights guidance as well as being a part of developing the new SKOS thesaurus system at SVT Archive, Sveriges Television. She is experienced in quality control of metadata and rights, is originally from Denmark and has previously worked at DR Archive and research.

Digital Transformation of the Archive and a Modern Approach to Sustainable Storage at RTÉ

RTÉ Archives is in a process of digital transformation. This presentation will look at our approach and progress with digitisation, digitalisation and digital transformation; how we are restructuring our teams and developing new skills and juggling both digital and analogue workflows in parallel; and what opportunities and challenges will arise with the provision of digital access to our archive content in the future.

It will also look at RTÉ’s new digital storage solution examining the options considered and the approach taken to consolidate disparate digital storage systems into one system that is sustainable, resilient, secure and scalable. It will explain how object storage manages resilience and security and how it facilitates RTÉ Archives’ storage and digital preservation requirements.

Conrad Gouws & Miroslav Culjat

Conrad is the Technical Architect at Radió Teilifis Éireann (RTÉ), the public service broadcaster in Ireland, where he is working on modernising and transforming RTÉ’s technology architecture as part of the ongoing digital transformation in the organisation.
