Digital Archive Systems Using Cms and Gallery Tools - Implementation of Anthropological Museum
MetadataShow full item record
Recently, we have good opportunities to integrate various digital collections and archive systems using loosely coupled and meaningfully connected hyperlinks from various view points of cultural, social and technical aspects. In this paper, from technical view points, we present our implementation of digital anthropological museum using CMSs (Contents Management System) and gallery tools. Firstly, we have a brief comparison of digital archive software including popular CMSs. Recent years, Museums, Libraries and Archives (MLA) are making efforts to provide various digital collections and born-digital information by using digital archive systems. For example, major national libraries and long-term preserving organisations, such as IIPC (International Internet Preservation Consortium), gather and preserve huge amount of web pages, and curate them using web curator tools. Secondary, we propose a metadata schema for digital collections in "the Anthropological Museum of Nanzan University", which is based on the guideline of museum objects. Our proposed schema based on XML metadata formats like URI/RDF/MODS. Finally, we show the system architecture of digital anthropological museum and implementation of three different prototype systems based on different CMSs add-on modules and other related software. From 2005 to 2012, we have 1776 digital collections with 74 metadata attributes and 40,000 ethnographic photographs without metadata, at present we store 277 digital contents having detail values into our prototype of digital museum system. Using interfaces of prototype systems, we also introduce workflows of museum collections including content rights management.
