Basenji is an indexing and search tool designed for easy and fast indexing of media collections. Once indexed, removable media such as CDs and USB sticks can be browsed and searched for specific files very quickly, without actually being connected to the computer. Besides file hierarchies and audio track listings, Basenji also presents extracted metadata (image dimensions, mp3 tags etc.) and content previews of indexed media in a clean and straightforward user interface.
libextractor is a library used to extract meta-data from files of arbitrary type. It is designed to use helper-libraries to perform the actual extraction, and to be trivially extendable by linking against external extractors for additional file types. The goal is to provide developers of file-sharing networks, file managers, and WWW-indexing bots with a universal library to obtain meta-data about files. It includes a shell-command and bindings for Java (JNI) and Python.
Invenio (formerly CDSware) is a suite of applications that provides the framework and tools for building and managing an autonomous digital library server. It complies with the Open Archives Initiative metadata harvesting protocol (OAI-PMH) and uses MARC 21 as its underlying bibliographic standard. Its flexibility and performance make it a comprehensive solution for the management of document repositories of moderate to large size.
