Poster presented at the International Digital Curation Conference in Chicago, Illinois. Overview: The Curator's Workbench is a new collection preparation and work flow tool for digital materials, developed in summer 2010 at UNC Chapel Hill. It is designed to streamline the capture, arrangement and description of digital materials for an institutional repository, while automating routine steps, such as staging files and calculating checksums.
