Digital Publishing with the OSCI Toolkit

A session at MCN 2012

Wednesday 7th November, 2012

9:00am to 12:30pm (PST)

The way in which people read long-form digital content is rapidly changing shape. Between custom mobile applications, web applications, iBooks, and Kindle libraries it is difficult to discern the most effective outlet for the publications that museums produce. The Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI) was formed by the Getty Foundation in 2009 in order to explore where and how scholarly catalogues best fit within this realm. Part of that initiative has yielded the OSCI Toolkit, an open-source software platform for authoring and disseminating scholarly catalogues. This hands-on workshop will introduce how the OSCI Toolkit can help museums manage their digital publications and connect them to where readers are already consuming long-form digital content. Attendees will walk through the process of creating an ePUB and be introduced to the extended features of the OSCI Toolkit.
