VMW Toolshop: Project Management

This Friday's toolshop, facilitated by Kate Joranson, Alison Langmead, and myself, focuses on tools and techniques for project management. We have designed our discussion to encompass both available software and strategies for project planning and working with a team. For ease of accessing some of the resources we will discuss this morning, we have compiled a list of links in this post.

VMW Toolshop: Exporting Metadata

During the Visual Media Workshop’s tool shop on organizing images for research and teaching, some questions arose regarding the process of exporting metadata from content management systems, specifically Adobe Bridge and Picasa, to spreadsheets. Exporting this information allows you not only to back up image metadata in an easily-readable format, it also allows you to move the metadata between systems both now and in the future.
