The Library of Congress > Digital Preservation > News Archive > Free Online Workshop for Preservation Partners

April 7, 2011 -- NDIIPP is happy to host a free online workshop for digital preservation partners. Trevor Owens will demonstrate how preservation partners can use this free Library of Congress-sponsored software to easily create intuitive interfaces to their digital collections.

Recollection view

Register for the workshop today to reserve your seat. 

Recollection is a free open source platform for generating and customizing views (interactive maps, timelines, facets, tag clouds) that allow scholars, librarians and curators to explore digital collections in novel and intuitive ways. Content stewards start by ingesting collections from spreadsheets, sets of MODS records, or RSS and Atom feeds. They then generate a range of interactive visualizations, including charts and maps, as well as sophisticated faceted browsing interfaces for users of their digital collections. Ultimately they can simply copy-paste to embed visualizations and interfaces anywhere on the Web.
Key Event information:

  • Recollection: Easily Create Dynamic Interfaces to Digital Collections.
  • When: 1:00 p.m. EDT, Tuesday April 19, 2011
