The University of Notre Dame has taken a modular approach to building a new digital collections platform-integrating existing applications and connecting the people that manage and use them across the library, archives, and art museum. We began with two assumptions: one size would not fit all for our campus archives, library, and museum; and community needs above all. In this presentation, team members will talk about the past two years of experimentation, development, and conversation around how to connect our community to our cultural heritage collections through multiple integrations, both human and technological. At a high-level, we’ll discuss our technical architecture that uses legacy applications like ArchivesSpace, an aging Fedora repository, and a decades-old museum database together with the IIIF framework and open-source GatsbyJS. And perhaps more importantly, we’ll outline the cross-departmental team structure that has developers talking to museum curators, library cataloguers, archivists, and everyone in between.

Everyone is welcome at this presentation but it may be particularly suited to those in the following groups: administrators, managers (general), metadata people, UI/UX people
