FITS allows data curators to identify, validate, and extract technical metadata for the objects in their digital repository.

JHOVE2 allows data curators to characterise the digital objects in their repositories using four methods: identifying formats, validating specifications, extracting metadata, and assessing acceptability. 

The Metadata Extraction Tool automatically extracts a limited set of metadata from the headers of digital files.

OpenDataForge is a collection of tools for transforming data, with an emphasis on using open data formats and metadata standards.
