Digitizing Diversity for the Web
Cultural heritage materials arrive at memory institutions through a digitially diverse spectrum of media formats. Over the last five years, Texas State University Libraries has built an inspiring ecosystem to create culturally diverse digital scholarship online integrating text, data, video, audio, images and maps. Many cultural heritage projects involve marginalized or historically underrepresented groups. In Texas, our projects focus on our Mexican American and Hispanic populations. This presentation overviews how to build innovative cultural heritage digital infrastructures focusing upon leading edge open source software and hardware solutions. Progressive technological benchmarks. Ideas of inclusivity and inspiring avenues for creating such infrastructures will be emphasized.
