Kew Gardens MediaStore Case Study

  1. 1. ©Extended Content Solutions, 2013Kew Gardens & MediaStore Case Study1 ChallengeResponsible for the world’s largest collection of living plants Kew Royal BotanicGardens approached ECS with a need to deliver a CollectionsManagement solution.The solution needed to enable the ability to import, catalogue and publicly presenttheir vast digital archives.To get a scale of the sheer volume of digital assets this solution would need toincorporate: Kew’s living collections include more than 30,000 different kinds ofplants, while the herbarium, which is one of the largest in the world, has over sevenmillion preserved plant specimens. The library contains more than 750,000 volumes,and the illustrations collection contains more than 175,000 prints and drawings ofplants.2 SolutionTo meet the client’s requirements, ECS deployed their MediaStore solution.MediaStore acts as a centrally located repository for digital assets that provides aneasy ability to update, search, download, track and share images with employees,customers and suppliers.The application is based on Oracle WebCenter which provides beneficial underlyingfeatures such as security, version control and content conversion. MediaStoreprovides a rich user interface with advanced features to enable true enterprise mediamanagement for the client.Figure 1: Kew Image Details - ECS implementeda rendition set suited to Kew Gardens public facingwebsite, which produced a variety of renditions foreach image uploaded.
  2. 2. ©Extended Content Solutions, 20133 OutcomeMediaStore was deployed to enable bulk uploading and cataloguing of digitalarchives, which were routed through workflow and eventually exposed to users oftheir public facing site. Users were also able to search the public archives based onthe metadata entered during upload.ECS was quickly able to model Kew’s metadata requirements in MediaStore, andenabled contributors to index, update, search by, and view metadata for their entiredigital catalogue.The Asset Information screen of MediaStorewas altered for Kew to provide workflowstatus information and links to pagescontaining the asset.Need a mention of Galleries in hereFigure 2: Kew Metadata Model Example
