On 20 July, 2010, in Arlington, VA, The Library of Congress held a Recollection workshop at the Digital Preservation Partners Meeting. The well-attended workshop featured an introduction to the digital preservation and access platform and a session where attendees could build Web applications with their own data within thirty minutes and could then showcase these to other workshop participants. Zepheira was in attendance as the developer of the Recollection platform and supporter of NDIIPP.
The mission of the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) is to develop a national strategy to collect, preserve and make available significant digital content, especially information that is created in digital form only, for current and future generations. In 2008, the NDIIPP partners shared content through a simple web page. In order to explore more useful tools and processes for sharing diverse content across partners’ collections, the Library began the Project Recollection Pilot in 2009 with Zepheira to develop a proof of concept that can be used to collect and explore information about digital collections.
