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.
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.
