  • 3. Design Decisions
    Clean Uncluttered user interface
    “Less is More” presents many design challenges
    Simple, intuitive, search and navigation
    Minimal click to any object
    Zero (or as close as possible) learning curve
    Future friendly
    Abandon backwards compatibility if necessary
    “Book Reader” Functionality
    Digital Resources and Imaging Services
  • 4. Technical Considerations
    Data Resilience –Long term file preservation (i.e. >100 Years)
    Data integrity
    Performance
    Scalability
    Security
    Interoperability
    Library (Millennium, Calm, Tara, RMS)
    External (Europeana, Tell, …)
    Digital Resources and Imaging Services
  • 5. Other Considerations
    Limited Staffing
    Stephen Keegan: software design and development
    Una O’Shea: graphic design
    Compressed schedule as a result of grant obligations
    8 month development cycle
    Uncertain hardware platform at the start of the program
    Digital Resources and Imaging Services
  • 6. Technologies
