They say there is nothing better than baseball in October. The team at discoverygarden agrees.  That is why we are pleased to present our next Islandora webinar which will showcase the recent Islandora launch at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum (NBHFM).

In the Summer of 2015, discoverygarden was contacted by the NBHFM as they embarked on a mission to conserve, curate and catalog their unparalleled and growing set of historic collections. The objective was to expand their audience and enhance brand recognition by participating more fully within the digital realm.

In September 2016, the NBHFM launched their first online collection entitled ‘PASTIME’ which provides a window into the illustrious career of the Great Bambino, Babe Ruth.

discoverygarden Solutions Architect Stephen Perkins will give a high level presentation about the NBHFM project, and will showcase various custom features that have been implemented.

We hope that you can join us on Tuesday, October 25 at 12pm EDT for another exciting webinar brought to you by discoverygarden.

Warmest Regards,

~ the discoverygarden team

Fundación Juan March Digital Collections

Duration
September 2011 to Present

Objective
Implement a new Islandora Digital Library system to serve a rich and unique set of collections

Strategy
FJM was interested in working with a knowledgeable Islandora partner to help implement a bilingual (English and Spanish) system with 4 core collections, while at the same time building internal staff expertise. FJM used discoverygarden’s services for a variety of services including consultation, design for the initial installation, customized development and migration of metadata from complex internal Microsoft SQL Server databases, merging this with recently digitized content.

Result
FJM launched with four collections, starting with Clamor (http://digital.march.es/clamor/) in November 2011 and continuing with Antonia Mercé (http://digital.march.es/merce/), Joaquín Turina (http://digital.march.es/turina/) and an Institutional Repository, CEACS. Subsequent to this excellent partnership the FJM team has developed some new collections that build on this work and implements their own innovations within the framework, including Catalogos (http://www.march.es/arte/catalogos/?l=2), which provides access to over 180 exhibition catalogues. Since its inception the FJM repository has reached 1 million files stored and preserved, as well as over 11 million RDF relations between objects. The repository keeps incorporating new interactive and user friendly features such as data visualizations (maps, timelines), multi-device support with progressive loading document viewers and responsive web design and recommendation systems.  

The FJM project is an excellent demonstration of how organizations can work with discoverygarden to meet tight timelines, building on sustainable and effective partnerships and internal expertise.
