MCNPro: Digital Publication and the OSCI Toolkit

Join the MCN Information Technology SIG for our next MCNPro on October 11th at 2pm EST!

The Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative has been an on-going program sponsored by the Getty Foundation for a decade. The IMA Lalogob has been a key partner in that program and as part of that, has designed and developed the OSCI Toolkit. The Toolkit is an open-source software project that has been used in the creation of scholarly as well as non-scholarly digital publications. IMA Lab will present a timeline of the initiative and a case study using the OSCI Toolkit, conduct a brief demonstration and instruction on the utilization of the OSCI toolkit, and facilitate conversation about the state of digital publishing. You can watch the session below by clicking on the Youtube viewer.
