Bridging the Gap: Connecting Authors to Museum and Archival Collections

The creation of an open source link between the digital resources available through the commonly-used asset management system, CONTENTdm, with the multimedia Web authoring application, Pachyderm.

This project improves the ability of multimedia authors to interact with the digital collections of museums, archives, and libaries, thereby enhancing experimentation in new forms of humanities scholarship. The project envisions development of an open sources bridge between a widely used digital asset management system (CONTENTdm) and applications that support the Open Knowledge Initiative's standard for interoperability, including open source, multimedia authoring tools. In a collaborative scholarly endeavor, we will use this software bridge to develop a multimedia presentation on the Pacific Northwest Artist Carl Hall (1921-1996) that directly incorporates images and audio from museum and archival digital collections.
