The National Jazz Museum in Harlem will create a customized digital asset management system and web interface design for managing the museum's digital assets and sharing the museum's curated digital content. The museum's digital assets include audio, video, photographs, manuscripts and sheet music. This system will enable on-site visitors to learn about and experience jazz and its rich history in Harlem by using new interactive touchscreens in the visitors center with curated digital content that complements the exhibition. The system will also provide a global audience with online access to the museum's collections via mobile and web applications. The digital content will significantly improve the museum experience for on-site and off-site visitors, enhancing their knowledge of jazz and its rich history in Harlem.
