In 2012 the Princeton University Library implemented a revolutionary archival access system with features based on such often-discussed concepts as delivery of digital content, on-demand digitization, user commenting, and linked open data. In this session, the project team discusses collaboration in the development process, the delivery system itself, its technical infrastructure and theoretical underpinnings, and its implications for descriptive practices. Come hear about ways to use structured data to enhance access to archival holdings.
