Curation Tools for Data Management and Digitization
MetadataShow full item record
The University of Houston (UH) Libraries made an institutional commitment in late 2015 to migrate the data for its digitized cultural heritage collections to open source systems for preservation and access: Hydra-in-a-Box, Archivematica, and ArchivesSpace. This poster illustrates four open source tools that the UH Libraries have developed for data management and digitization workflows in our new systems architecture. The data management tools include an application for minting and resolving ARK identifiers and another for managing SKOS linked data vocabularies. The digitization workflow tools include an application for producing Archivematica submission information packages (SIPs) structured on ArchivesSpace collection hierarchies and a metadata editing interface that produces dissemination information packages (DIPs) for Hyku ingest.
