Collaboration is a necessity for many institutions as budgets shrink and newer digital technologies are expanding collection access and use. Drawing upon three successful initiatives, this session will discuss the collaborative nature involved for inter-institutional and multi-institutional projects, viable content management system tools and open source software for creating digital resources, and digital project management. Vander Broek, Moussa and Musolff of the University of Michigan will discuss how they configured Omeka to meet existing needs within the library community and how to integrate online exhibits into the library’s website to make these resources more discoverable by users. Cowell of the Brooklyn Public Library and Brown of Brooklyn Museum will discuss Project CHART’s (Cultural Heritage, Access, Research and Technology) innovative approaches to combining multiple asset management systems in a Drupal environment, and they will demonstrate how that innovation was able to allow three cultural institutions to display content cohesively while maintaining individual identities and ownership of content. Resulting from their work on the Seaside Research Portal, Parker and Robichaud of the University of Notre Dame will explore issues associated with collecting and building virtual and physical architectural archives, documenting urban projects, funding large scale digitization efforts and maintaining and expanding these resources as the communities grow and evolve.
