The State and University Library, Denmark, hosted an information and demonstration day on 25 June 2014 for delegates from other large cultural heritage institutions in Denmark. The information day introduced the EU-funded project SCAPE (Scalable Preservation Environments) and its tools and services to the participants. Read more about the event in this blog post, http://bit.ly/SCAPE_SB_Demo.
One of the presentations was given by Asger Askov Blekinge who showed how the library has worked on integrating its digital object management system with Hadoop. The library is currently digitizing 32 million newspaper pages and is using Hadoop map/reduce jobs to do quality assurance on the digitized files with the help of the SCAPE Stager/Loader so updated QA’ed files are stored in the repository.
