Transcript

  • 1.

Kelly Library, USMC Karen Suurtamm, Archivist, UTARMS Ken Yang, Digital Humanities Application Programmer, UTL ITS
  • 2. Presentation Overview 1. Introducing the Collections UofT platform (Kelli) 2. Use case: UTARMS (Karen) 3. Use case: Nouwen family photograph albums (Danielle) 4. Use case: using OAI-PMH to share metadata (Sara)
  • 3. What is Collections UofT? http://collections.library.utoronto.ca/
  • 4. What is Collections UofT? Enterprise Content Management Approach ● Problem: How best to manage our digital projects/digital assets while leveraging limited resources? ● One possibility: a repository inspired by the “enterprise content management” framework ● An enterprise content management approach offers guidelines for the architecture and management behind a repository, rather than simply a technical solution
  • 5. Enterprise Content Management Enterprise Content Management comprises the strategies, processes, methods, systems, and technologies that are necessary for capturing, creating, managing, using, publishing, storing, preserving, and disposing content within and between organizations. ECMs and Institutional Repositories: The Case for a Unified Enterprise Approach to Content Management Malcolm Wolski, Natasha Simons and Joanna Richardson, 2013 http://eprints.utas.edu.au/16317/1/THETA_2013_Wolski.pdf

  • 10. Metadata Conundrum
  • 11. Enabling collaboration
  • 12. Islandora and the U of T Archives Karen Suurtamm, Archivist U of T Archives & Records Management Services (UTARMS)

  • 14. Heritage site ● Initiated by President’s office ● Created by ITS; launched 2012 ● Scope: U of T history ● Material from repositories across U of T o UTARMS o Fisher o UTSC o UTM
  • 15. Benefits of Heritage Site ● Increased exposure ● Search and browse across repositories ● Easy browsing/searching for internal use ● Faceted browsing ● Multimedia: photographs, documents, maps, drawings, films, books ● Increased collaboration
  • 16. Exhibits
  • 17. Chronology
  • 18. Social media
  • 19. Limitations of Heritage ● Strict mandate/scope ● Another ‘place’ to look for things ● Not linked back to our website and archival descriptions ● Little control over how our material displays
  • 20. Collections: U of T Archives multi-site ● Central space : decentralized workflow ● More control over collection display ● Own look/feel for our page ● Can build our own menu items: About, Contact, How to cite, etc. ● Content is unlimited in scope
  • 21. Islandora for Archives: Benefits ● Supports multiple formats ● Open source o Can build/add/adapt o Room to grow/change o community/collaboration ● Pairing with other software o Exhibits (Timeline etc) o Preservation (Archivematica) o Description (AtoM)
  • 22. Islandora for Archives: Challenges ● Communicating that ‘this isn’t everything’ ● Use of the term ‘collections’ ● Metadata: balancing cohesion and autonomy with other professions/sectors ● Preserving/communicating context ● Preserving/communicating hierarchical arrangement

  • 25. Project Overview ● 18 photograph albums donated in 2012 ● 650 pages with more than 4000 photographs ● Funding was provided for the digitization and description of the albums ● Online access key component of agreement ● Albums compiled by the Nouwen family and Henri Nouwen
  • 26. Page 12 of Album 18
  • 27. Page 6 of Album 12
  • 28. Page 20 of Album 5
  • 29. Page 21 of Album 3
  • 30. Why Collections U of T? ● Higher profile for USMC Collections ● Allows for centralized online dissemination with built-in IT support ● Access to academic audience ● Collections U of T collaborators as built-in community of practice
  • 31. Challenges ● Photograph albums don’t align with the Book or Large Image Content models ● Resources, time and knowledge required for site customization and configuration ● Archival descriptive standards vs Dublin Core basic elements
  • 32. Solution: Thinking Out Loud
  • 33. How Do You Solve a Problem Like UTSC? ● The DSU at UTSC has its own Islandora o We use it in different ways than ITS o Not an institutional repository but an organic digital scholarship tool that we need to be able to experiment with ● But we think it’s important to contribute!
  • 34. Learn to Share! ● Create a search interface that will find our stuff via Collections UofT without the effort of ingesting it twice ● OAI-PMH: Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting
  • 35. Metadata Harvesting via OAI-PMH UTSC metadata available via Islandora OAI module Collections UofT harvester Request made via HTTP Dublin Core XML gathered via OAI-PMH Metadata made available via Collections UofT site
  • 36. Pros and Cons of OAI-PMH Advantages: ● Relatively easy ● Minimal duplication of ingest effort ● No loss if UTSC decides to change how we use Collections UofT Issues: ● User interface changes ● Only harvests simple Dublin Core ● Out of date - ATOM, ResourceSync, or LOD could do this better
