Description: The Hesburgh Libraries and Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame received a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in 2017 to develop a unified preservation and exhibition platform that will bring together their diverse collections online. The resulting platform aims to encourage comparative research, innovative joint exhibitions, and deeper integration of artwork, rare books, and artifacts [and archival resources] into University teaching. It will also benefit the scholarly community writ large by making available to other institutions an optimized open-source solution for collections preservation, curation, and scholarly and pedagogical use. In addition to the technical solution, best practices and collaborative workflows for Libraries and Museums will be documented and shared. This OSF portal contains technical and process documentation for the project.
