Umbrella Project

Greetings Colleagues,

I would like to announce a research project underway at the IUPUI Herron Art Library.  The overall purpose of the project is to look at the manner in which two different content management systems handle data and images.  The link below launches the description and project.

Within the text of the description are two links to the Umbrella art journal, 1978-2005, hosted respectively by CONTENTdm and IDeA (DSPACE).  Participants are asked to visit the Umbrella journal found within each system and then complete a survey capturing information about each system’s functionality.   A link to the survey is provided at the welcome page of each system.  This link points to the same survey.  Please take the survey once after searching both databases.  The project and survey will be available through early January.

Many, many, many thanks to all individuals involved – a very special thank you to Judith Hoffberg for making this a possibility :)
