extraMUROS and the 21st century image library
In 2011, a group of librarians, faculty, programmers and documentarians began developing an open-source HTML5 infrastructure built on public APIs that enables faculty, students, staff and the general public to view, annotate, and remix Harvard-owned digital multimedia collections and to interconnect them with other high-quality digital repositories across the web. This paper tells the story of this project from the librarians’ perspective, describing the work and what was learned.
