Building an Award-Winning Digital Archive with the Kansas City Public Library: Digital Asset Management is now VITALized!


Presented by: Innovative & Library Journal

Event Date & Time: Tuesday, May 19th, 2015, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET / 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PT

Join David LaCrone, digital branch manager of Kansas City Public Library (MO) in a free webcast presented by Innovative Interfaces and Library Journal, to find out how KCPL created the award-winning Civil War on the Western Border website using semantic web technology and Innovative’s VTLS-Vital digital asset management system. The site features creative new ways to navigate digital archives, including an exciting new relationship viewer that enables visitors to visually explore the connections between people, places, groups, and events, while easily accessing documents that verify these connections.

Whether you have to maintain or create an institutional repository or digital asset management system, Vital delivers an experience that is engaging, discoverable, and takes advantage of all of your most unique content. Learn how Vital provides flexibility in standards, opportunities for custom presentation, and the ability to leverage anything from a faculty paper to an oral history video to make your digital collections come to life.
