The university's Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media will extend the core functionality of Omeka S by more fully integrating linked open data in digital collections, and creating new modes of access and dissemination through other platforms. The center will develop and support several deliverables: a basic resource description template; three linked open data and controlled authority modules; a social media sharing module; and several developer training workshops. Key outcomes include increasing the integration of LOD authority files in metadata for digital collections; the ability of cultural heritage organizations to implement their own local controlled authorities; the likelihood that new metadata for digital collections can be smoothly transferred to key aggregators of the national digital platform; the ease of circulation for digital cultural heritage collections through web and social media platforms; and the technical capacity of library, archive, and museum staff.
