The UMedia Archive seeks to implement a new system for the management and delivery of digital objects and rich media. By leveraging open-source technologies, the Libraries provides for a new user experience to the campus community, incorporating a strong repository model alongside an enhanced web interface.

Managing and delivering content in this new system will be done in two ways:

  • Curatorial – Allows University content managers a method for cataloging and providing access to digital collections

  • User-managed – Those in the broader university community with x.500 accounts will be able to SIGN IN and upload, manage and deliver their own personal digital collections

All patrons may search across both types of collections.
