About the Project



The Database committee provided a working digital library system that served the needs of the project. After using the criteria proposed by other committees to evaluate different platforms, including Greenstone and CONTENTdm, they ultimately determined Omeka to be the appropriate platform for the project. Once the software was chosen, the Database committee installed and customized it, working closely with the Descriptive Metadata and Web/IA committees to ingest all of the data. The committee also enabled an advanced search feature to enhance the findability of the library's contents.

Committee Members: Tomoko Kurahashi, Bill McKinney, Karen Uhlrich
