Our DPLA Beta Sprint contribution describes a model for how cultural heritage organizations with an existing online presence can maximize the discovery and use of their digital library collections through a minimal amount of centralized coordination facilitated by the DPLA. We believe that a significant amount of cultural heritage content is already published in digital form on the Web, but is largely hidden and poorly discoverable by the general public. In this context, we think that the DPLA initiative is well positioned to act as a catalyst to virtually move large amounts of this content from the invisible Web, to the visible and interoperable Web.

  • Summary of our proposal
  • Figure 1. Public Profile View – Unclaimed Collection Example A This is the public view of a Collection Profile which has just been created and updated by a single Volunteer user. No user is currently logged in for this view.
  • Annotations for Figure 1
  • Figure 2. Public Profile View - Unclaimed Collection Example B This is the public view of the same Collection Profile after some time and more enhancements by volunteers. A second volunteer has contributed information towards a few Achievements. The Profile is still unclaimed. Volunteers are able to provide much of the information on a collection, so even an unclaimed Collection Profile can be rather robust. However, accomplishment of some Achievements are only available to claimed profiles.
  • Annotations for Figure 2
  • Figure 3. Public Profile View - Claimed Collection Example This is the view of a Collection Profile that has been claimed. The display changes slightly as there is a logged in user which is a verified Collection Manager for this Profile. The Robot Friendly section of the page, illustrates that multiple Achievements ("Allow Crawlers" and "Sitemap") can be awarded to a single extended metadata set. Only a few of the sections of the page are visible without scrolling.
  • Annotations for Figure 3
  • Figure 4. Public API View - Claimed Collection Example This view illustrates one method for providing machine optimized access to the Collection Profile. In this example, the Collection Profile metadata is serialized over HTTP as JSON, a popular data interchange format for web scripting.
  • Annotations for Figure 4
  • Figure 5. Edit Achievement View - Claimed Collection Example This view provides an example of how Achievement fulfillment could be implemented.
  • Annotations for Figure 5
  • Figure 6. Browse All Achievements This view provides an example of an entry point for Achievement discovery and fulfillment.
