Exhibiting in the Virtual World

Evviva Weinraub Lajoie, USA

Using funds provided through LSTA, OSU Libraries & Press is building a web-based tool, optimized for use in a mobile environment that takes University of Oregon Libraries’ Building Oregon: Architecture of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest digital collection, and makes it accessible to users in the mobile landscape, leveraging the tools and capabilities that the mobile environment provide.  The nature of mobile tools allows us to push out content to users in new ways, meeting the user where they live – in the digital world. Once the mobile tool has been created, OSU Libraries & Press will release the framework in an open source code repositories, for other libraries, museums, or cultural institutions with digital collections to use to mount their own digital collections or re-purpose existing digital collections in a mobile environment.
