IMLS Digital Collections & Content team recieves sub-award from the Digital Public Library of America Secretariat
The IMLS Digital Collections & Content (DCC) team has received a $50,000 sub-award from the Digital Public Library of Americas (DPLA) Secretariat to further refine the teams DPLA Beta Sprint prototype. The Beta Sprint prototype was originally developed during Summer 2011 as part of the DPLA Beta Sprint. The prototype was selected as one of six finalist projects showcased during the DPLAs Fall 2011 Plenary Meeting in Washington, D.C.
Bringing together resources from over 1000 cultural heritage collections across the U.S., the prototype builds on the DCC teams knowledge and experiences aggregating metadata records from varied institutions ranging from libraries and archives to museums and historical societies. The new sub-award will allow the DCC team to make further refinements to the prototypes information retrieval algorithms and implement additional layers of interactive functionality that allow users to interact more directly and dynamically with the prototypes data.
