The State of New Mexico's Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, in collaboration with the New Mexico State Library Tribal Libraries Program and the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, will create tools to extend the capacities of Omeka-S, a widely-used open source content management system. The suite of architectural and interactive features will include the translation of images stored in Omeka-S to the International Image Interoperability Format (IIIF), and enhanced tools for user tagging and annotations. Code for the tools will be shared openly on GitHub and with the Omeka-S community. The project will also result in the development of a model use case, demonstrating the technical and community impacts of the tools. A fellowship program will support the participation of individuals from New Mexico's Native communities in the development of the model use case.
