Bagit: Transferring Content for Digital Preservation (Library of Congress), includes tool BIL (Bagit Library) for creating data bags <http://www.digitalpreservation.gov/videos/bagit0609.html>
DROID/PRONOM (Digital Record Object Identification and format registry)
PRONOM - <http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/PRONOM/Default.aspx>
DROID - <http://droid.sourceforge.net>
PRONOM is an online database containing details of more than 750 different digital file formats. Along with the DROID file format identification tool, which uses the database, PRONOM enables digital archivists, records managers and anyone using the tool to find out what files they have, in which formats and how best to ensure their long-term preservation.
The DROID tool scans a computer or hard drive and identifies files either through its file extension (for example .doc for Word files) or by matching the file's internal signature with specific entries in the PRONOM database.
EMET - Embedded Metadata Extraction Tool (ARTstor) - A stand-alone tool on the Adobe Air
2.0 platform designed to extract metadata embedded in JPEG and TIFF
files. EMET is compatible with Mac OS 10.4+, Windows XP, Windows Vista,
and Windows 7. <http://www.artstor.org/global/g-html/download-emet-public.html>
JHOVE (JSTOR/Harvard Object Validation Environment) <http://hul.harvard.edu/jhove>
FileFormat.Info : The Digital Rosetta Stone <http://www.fileformat.info/>
QuickPar - QuickPar is a utility for creating parity volumes using the Reed Solomon algorithm. Parity volumes may be used to verify that a set of files have not been corrupted, or to reconstruct damaged files (providing that you have a sufficient quantity of parity volumes to match the missing or damaged files). <http://www.quickpar.org.uk/>
National Library of New Zealand Metadata Extraction Toolkit The Metadata Extraction Tool programmatically extracts preservation metadata from a range of file formats including PDF documents, image files, sound files, office documents, and many others. It automatically extracts preservation-related metadata from digital files then outputs that metadata in XML. It can be used through a graphical user interface or command-line interface. <http://meta- extractor.sourceforge.net/>
Library of Congress Transfer Tools - Tools developed by the Library of Congress and their partners in the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) for the purpose of validation and transfer of data that conforms to the BagIt specification <http://sourceforge.net/projects/loc-xferutils/>

PREMIS in METS Toolbox (Florida Center for Library Automation) - The PREMIS in METS Toolbox is a set of open-source tools developed to support the implementation of PREMIS in the METS container format. The tools were created by Florida Center for Library Automation for the Library of Congress in 2009. <http://pim.fcla.edu/>
DAITSS (FCLS, USA) DAITSS is a preservation repository application available under the GPL license developed by The Florida Center for Library Automation. It implements the preservation strategies of normalization and forward migration for about 10 formats including JFIF (JPEG), JEG2000, TIFF, WAVE, XML, Quicktime, AVI and PDF. <http://daitss.fcla.edu/>
DAITSS 2 description service - an online web service for performing format identification, validation and characterization using DROID and JHOVE. You may upload any file to the description service and receive the result in a PREMIS document with standard metadata schema. <http://description.fcla.edu.
