Library-Museum Collaboration

This tool kit will let a broad range of museums, libraries, and other institutions with video resources catalog these resources and make them accessible through Web-based digital video libraries. Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) and Northeast Historic Film (NHF) bring to the project expertise in managing digital documents and creating open-source digital video libraries. NHF, the museum partner, provides video content within the resource limitations common among small museums. The Moving Image Collections (MIC) project will work with the project partners to ensure that an appropriate descriptive, technical, and rights metadata schema is incorporated into the tool kit, a critical component for facilitating high-level interoperability and broad accessibility of resources in digital video libraries. The project will be guided by an advisory board with representatives from key digital video-related projects, including the Internet Archive, Open Video, WGBH-TV, and MIC.
