Earlier this year, we were able to get funding for a Digital Library Developer position to work on the Provincial Digital Library collaboration with the British Columbia Libraries Association. Our amazing DLD, Matt Barry, has been working with Dan Sifton of Vancouver Island University, on a proof-of-concept using Supplejack to ingest heritage content from a variety of institutions and platforms.
At the end of June, Matt and Dan will be presenting a live demonstration of their work at the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries in Toronto. Here’s what they’ll be showing off:
The short paper describing their project is available to read (PDF).
If you’ll be attending the conference, be sure to say hello and see what they’ve built!
