This webinar will feature speakers discussing the myriad ways CollectionSpace is used at the museums and specimen collections of the University of California, Berkeley. The speakers will talk about the common needs and benefits that brought the museums together, the way the campus governance council has facilitated the process, and the new enhancements that the Berkeley team has created and contributed back to benefit the larger CollectionSpace community.
Speakers: Chris Hoffman and Rick Jaffe, University of California, Berkeley
Date & Time: Oct 16, 1:00 - 2:30 PM EST
Community Collections Spotlight: Exploring the Public Art Archive (Webinar 2 for PAA)https://www.lyrasis.org/Content/Pages/Event-Details.aspx?Eid=B7F9450A-846B-E911-80F6-00155D73CF39
As a follow-up to the first webinar in the series, a second presentation will highlight how system users are able to publish objects in their databases to the publicly searchable Public Art Archive, an online and mobile database of public art. The Public Art Archive utilizes the Public Art Archive CMS to aggregate data throughout the world for the purpose of making information, locations, and images searchable on the Archive's website. To accomplish this, the Public Art Archive team has harnessed the potential of the CollectionSpace architecture to present the data in ways that provide sustainable engagement for artists, public art collections, the educators, and the general public.
Speaker: Lori Goldstein, WESTAF
Date & Time: Nov. 7, 1:00 - 2:30 PM EST
Community Collections Spotlight: Exploring CollectionSpace Collaborations - Material Order Consortiumhttps://www.lyrasis.org/Content/Pages/Event-Details.aspx?Eid=C4293F38-1CAB-E911-80FE-00155D73CF3B
The Material Order Consortium is a collaboration among the libraries of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Parsons School of Design. Each of these schools manages a collection of "design materials" - materials used by architects, designers, and artists in their work. The core goal of the consortium is to provide a community and standards-based approach to describing and managing materials collections.
This webinar will feature speakers from the consortium, and its engagement with CollectionSpace. The speakers will talk about the common needs and benefits that brought the different design materials-holding institutions together, and how they worked together to: create a shared controlled vocabulary for materials; define the standard for describing design materials and create a CollectionSpace profile to support that standard; and fund a shared public collections browser.
Speakers: Johanna Kasubowski & Ann Baird Whiteside, Harvard Graduate School of Design, and Margot Nishimura & Mark Pompelia, Rhode Island School of Design
Date & Time: Dec. 4, 1:00 - 2:30 PM EST
