Learning object summary

This is an inventory of tools in the BitCurator Environment. For each tool, the workflow step, the accepted input (disk image, directory of files, etc.), the type of user interface (GUI/CLI), links to available documentation, and the tool’s function are all listed. This inventory does not include every tool that comes packaged in the BitCurator environment (for example, there are many Linux commands that may aid in data triage or other digital curation activities, but they are too numerous to include). The inventory can serve as a quick reference for instructors who might wish to demonstrate tools in class or discuss how they might be used in different workflows.
