Description

The CCC is creating a unified portal to access archival collections relating to Chicago at a variety of institutions. The consortium has chosen XTF to search and index the metadata. Our first order of business is to create an admin tool that can ingest any metadata from home institutions and create standardized metadata to allow discovery of related material across institutions. Development of the tool began in May. I'll give an overview of what we're doing from a technical stand point and update about where we are and what our difficulties have been.
