Opening the Vault: Providing Digital Access to Archival Moving Images
MetadataShow full item record
The WGBH Media Library and Archives has developed a prototype project using a Fedora repository which allows scholarly researchers to access and interact with archival moving image content. This poster will cover lessons learned regarding cataloging and the user experience, our development process, and new tools for annotating, tagging and segmenting multimedia content in support of research activities. The poster will ultimately serve as a summary of both our project but also the challenges faced, decisions made, and opportunities encountered in building a repository for multimedia materials. This project was funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
