Crossing the Curatorial Chasm - Lessons from the FACADE project
MetadataShow full item record
The FACADE project was tasked with developing a preservation strategy and program for proprietary, complex 3D CAD models used in architecture and design. In achieving this goal, the project created an expressive object model as an RDF ontology, wrote numerous curatorial applications to assist project comprehension and metadata creation, devised techniques for processing collections at large scale, and designed compelling visualization and discovery user interfaces. Actual instance collections were ingested into DSpace, and UIs manifested from them.
