Metadata for digital objects can exist in both ArchivesSpace and a digital asset management or repository system. This leads to a duplication of metadata between these systems. System integration offers an opportunity to record metadata in one system, relying on the integration to automatically duplicate it in the other.
The objective is to create a digital asset management system with a creative and kinetic interface, allowing for private user workspaces, plus the added benefits of professional archival standards built into the system. This system will allow both staff and users to work within this virtual space in a visually engaging and fun way while also providing a strong and secure backend control offered by ArchivesSpace. The system will ultimately benefit both museum, public history and archives by providing virtual workspace for curation, digital exhibit layouts, archival processing, digital asset metadata projects and virtual research rooms.
