Making It Work Together: Integration and Automation in Digital Curation Platforms

In cultural heritage institutions there are a multitude of platforms to manage collections and data. They include those for management, preservation, storage, access, and many others. Often, these tools must work in concert but are not linked in anyway, causing frustration both to front-end and back-end users. With the availability of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), cultural heritage organizations have been able to better integrate their workflows and automate some of their processes, bridging the gaps across their platforms. These links have created greater efficiency in our work and greater access for our users.

Join the National Digital Stewardship Residents for a talk at Georgetown University Library by Michael Shallcross, Assistant Director for Digital Curation at the University of Michigan’s Bentley Historical Library about his work on integrating digital curation platforms in the ArchivesSpace-Archivematica-DSpace integration project. There will also be a brief demonstration and discussion of the tools and processes created at Georgetown for integration of Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust) digital preservation system with various digital curation tools. A light breakfast will also be served courtesy of Georgetown University Library.

Due to space restrictions, registration is limited to 15 staff members from WRLC institutions.
