WNET-Thirteen Releases its PBCore Cataloging Tool

WNET/Thirteen hereby releases the software of its PBCore Repository Project under the GPLv3 license (http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-3.0.txt). The PBCore Record Repository is an online database tool built on Ruby on Rails, Sphinx search, and MYSQL that was created at WNET/Thirteen to facilitate the import, export, search, creation and modification of PBCore records according to the PBCore 1.2.1 standard (http://pbcore.org/PBCore/PBCoreXMLSchema.html).

For testing and evaluation a public installed version of the application can be found at http://pbcore.vermicel.li
(For administrative testing log in as username=admin and password=secret)

This work employs PBCore. The PBCore (Public Broadcasting Metadata Dictionary) was created by the public broadcasting community in the United States of America for use by public broadcasters and others. Initial development funding for PBCore was provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The PBCore is built on the foundation of the Dublin Core (ISO 15836), an international standard for resource discovery (http://dublincore.org), and has been reviewed by the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative Usage Board. Copyright: 2005, Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
