Metadata + APIs --> Beauty: Building Engaging Digital Repository Skins With Static Web Tools Presentation uri icon



  • This presentation will detail a structure and workflow for building front-end ‘skins’ for CONTENTdm-powered digital collections using CollectionBuilder, a static web application created by librarians at the University of Idaho. CollectionBuilder uses Jekyll, APIs, and structured metadata to improve the browsing, search, design, and visualization capacities for digital collections.
