- computing "JSTOR/Harvard Object Validation Environment": A format-specific digital object validation API written in Java.
“The services listed include many of the identification, characterization, and migration tools that I have been assessing, such as JHOVE, DROID, New Zealand Metadata Extractor, etc.”
“A lot of the action with JHOVE is on the API level, e.g., use of JHOVE to check ingests to repositories, and the command line is used with scripts.”
“JHOVE itself seems very useful, just hard to make it work for a person uninformed about the installation.”
“So luckily, we have an awesome IT guy here who can work Java magic, and who installed JHOVE for me.”
“I've spent more time answering questions about how to get JHOVE working than about any other support issue.”
“I ran a tiff file through JHOVE, and it pulled out all kinds of preservation metadata.”
“And I quote: "JHOVE provides functions to perform format-specific identification, validation, and characterization of digital objects.”
“At present, there's no allocation in our schedule for changes to JHOVE; all future work will be with JHOVE2, which Harvard isn't involved in.”
“But JHOVE is still alive on SourceForge, so there's an opportunity for someone to write an installer.”
“Bess has provided some instructions on using the JSTOR/Harvard Object Validation Environment (JHOVE) to create Metadata for Images in XML (MIX) records.”
‘JHOVE’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for JHOVE.
