Building a Repository for Access to Historic Resources


The Archives is building a digital asset management system (DAMS). When completed, the DAMS will showcase historic materials from the collections, such as photographs, publications, and other materials that have been digitized for staff and public use. The system will allow users to search and remotely access materials.

The DAMS will be built using open-source components. Islandora is an open source framework comprised of Drupal (content display), Solr (indexing and searching), and Fedora (digital object repository).

The DAMS project priorities include:
• Historic photographs
• Annual Reports
• Research Reports
• Anniversary Publications
• Event Programs

When finished, the DAMS will provide open access to a variety of unique resources and historic information.
