  • the heterogeneity of our data is an asset
  • recollection floats on top
  • bigish ideas
    • one big distributed collection
    • open distributed infrastructure
    • mindset: records -> data
  • Beyond thinking like cards
  • to thinking like data
  • interfaces are ways of seeing
  • seeing the big picture
  • helps find little fixes
  • interfaces for discovery
  •

  • Can we abstract a more generic solution?
  •  
  •  
  • still too hard
  • the Recollection idea digital cultural heritage collections include temporal , locative , and categorical data that, could be tapped to better dynamically interact with and understand those collections.
  • the challenges
    • we all have different kinds of metadata
    • that data is in different kinds of systems
    • much of that data is messy
    • much of that data is not in the format we might wish it was
  • history Recollection was initially developed as a tool to help NDIIPP partners develop common interfaces to the distributed national collection of born digital materials they have preserved. The project is now in the process of becoming more broadly available.
  • broader audiences As we move toward a broader public release the project is embracing a wider audience. This audience includes librarians, archivists, curators, and researchers around the nation interested in better understanding and expanding access to their digital collections.
