UC Libraries Digital Collection

This project is completed

Research IT has partnered with the California Digital Library to implement the University of California Libraries Digital Collections project.

The UC Libraries Digital Collection (UCLDC) Implementation Project is a collaborative initiative of the ten campus libraries that will result in a shared platform for managing and displaying selected digital resources. It will reveal the strength and breadth of the UC Libraries' combined digital collections to end-users, while providing a streamlined underlying technical infrastructure for campus libraries to manage and surface content.

Research IT brings its expertise building atop the Nuxeo content management platform to contribute to the digital asset management system (DAMS) that will store and describe digital content (images, audio, video, etc.). Research IT's consortial work on the CollectionSpace open-source collections management application is the source of experience with Nuxeo.
