Re: [MCN-L] Anybody using IMu for public API

Contact Axiell which now owns eMU as I believe they are working on
something.

 Hi all

 We're (Te Papa) finally looking to use IMu a bit more from our EMu. We're
 thinking about a public facing API and a few more specialist uses. Does
 anyone have any experience they can share on successfully/unsuccessfully
 using IMu for external feeds/API etc?

[MCN-L] Google Open Gallery or Google Cultural Institute, anyone?

2014-01-23 Thread Lenore Sarasan
The link doesn't seem to work -- message says that it can't access the
blog.  If you can send me some other way of getting to the information, I
would be very interested in learning more about it.

 I am exploring ways to pull LOD together. Someone at the delightful
 #drinkingaboutmuseums:BOS last night pointed me to Google Open Gallery.

 At first glance, it appears to be a less capable Omeka--a way to dump some
 data online, but without any underlying linked data? From the Google blog
 post on the subject,

 http://googlepolicyeurope.blogspot.ca/2013/12/online-exhibitions-made-easy-with.htmlI
 get the impression that this is an extension of the existing Google
 Cultural Institute, but now open to the public.

 To find out more, it looks like I have to request an account--it's not yet
 automated. Has anyone already worked with either of these tools? Anything
 to report, good/bad/indifferent? (If not, I'm prepared to be the
 reporter-back)

 Thanks,

[MCN-L] CMS/DAM system combos that work

2012-09-29 Thread Lenore Sarasan
The best of breed is Mimsy XG paired with Piction.  Not only are both
tightly integrated (unlike what museums typically are doing) but also each
offers an array of features not found in any other systems including
(particularly germane to your museum) multi-lingual capabilities so that
you can support not only English but also multiple Asian languages with no
compromises.  All the data fields are available in each language, not just
a handful as in other systems saying they are multi-lingual.  The
combination also offers support for shop sales and ticketing.  Good luck
with your project.

 We are looking to convert our current CMS from Argus Open Edition to

 Digital Asset Management system (we have none) for object images as well
 as other media resources.  I would be very interested in hearing from
 institutions, particularly art museums, that have a DAM that plays well
 with your CMS.

 What combination of products to you use, and do they integrate well with
 one another? How involved is it to get data from the CMS and DAM into
 other systems, such as your web content manager?

 We have about 19,000 object records that we will be coverting, and many
 terabytes of images and video.

 I'd love to hear what you use. Thanks very much.

[MCN-L] Displaying TGN terms

2012-09-17 Thread Lenore Sarasan
Isn't there a problem going from narrowest to broader regarding sorting?

 David,

 Here is a reply to your question from Patricia Harpring, Managing Editor,
 Getty Vocabulary Program.

 
 David,

 You ask a good question. At the Getty Vocabulary Program, we recommend
 that you concatenate a recommended Label to identify the place.
 In brief, the label that is probably most useful to you comprises these
 elements:
 the English preferred name (if any) of the target place (if none, default
 to overall record-preferred name),
 then in parens the parents in ascending order to the level of Nation,
 using for each parent the flagged Display name if any; if none, the English
 preferred name; if none, default to overall record-preferred name), and so
 on for each parent to level of Nation (i.e., to the place type = 81002
 primary political unit as place type #2). If no parent is a primary
 political unit, go to level of continent. Close parens.
 Then include the preferred place type for the target place in parens.
 Include subject_id of the target place.
 Like this: In this example, the city Orvieto has no English name, so you
 use the record-preferred name. For parents, Terni province is an example
 of using a display name for its record, and Italy is an example of using
 the preferred English name its record when displayed in horizontal Label
 displays.

 Orvieto (Terni province, Umbria, Italy) (inhabited place) [7005124]


 The topic is discussed in a few places on our Web site, including the
 links below. I hope that helps. Note the discussion of special display
 names that are flagged to accommodate horizontal displays of parents.

 On a related topic: As I presented at a few conferences this summer, we
 are investigating the possibility of developing URIs for the Getty
 vocabularies. Although we are not certain this will happen, many of us here
 are optimistic. We will announce progress on this front when it is resolved.

 Sincerely,

 Patricia

 Labels for geographic places are succinctly described here:

 http://www.getty.edu/research/publications/electronic_publications/cdwa/30place.html#label
 Including examples; [I've added the TGN subject_ids here, which are
 missing because CDWA is speaking of labels in general, not of TGN
 specifically]

 - Orvieto (Terni province, Umbria, Italy) (inhabited place) [7005124]
 - Oldenburg (Franklin county, Indiana, United States) (inhabited place)
 [7013833]
 - Galatia (Turkey) (general region) [7016662]
 - Republic of Ireland (nation) [178]
 - Cyprus (Asia) (island) [1006894]
 - Belgica Prima (Gallia Belgica, Gaul) (former administrative division)
 [7030321]

 Labels for various purposes
 Labels with the inverted form of the preferred name followed by parents
 and place type are suited for alphabetical lists; note that only names of
 physical features will generally be inverted, as discussed in
 PLACE/LOCATION AUTHORITY - PLACE NAME.
 - Arrowsmith, Mount (Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada)
 (mountain) [1103769]
 - Erie, Lake (North and Central America) (lake) [7026039]
 - Hathala (Northwest Frontier, Pakistan) (inhabited place) [1083488]
 - Heicheng (Nei Mongol, China) (deserted settlement) [7001846]
 - Los Angeles (California, United States) (inhabited place) [7023900]
 - Zama (Siliana government, Tunisia) (lost settlement) [6006668]

 Labels with the natural order form of the preferred name followed by
 parents and place type are suited for wall labels, slide labels, and
 captions.
 - Mount Arrowsmith (Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada) (mountain)
 [1103769]
 - Lake Erie (North and Central America) (lake) [7026039]
 - Hathala (Northwest Frontier, Pakistan) (inhabited place) [1083488]
 - Heicheng (Nei Mongol, China) (deserted settlement) [7001846]
 - Los Angeles (California, United States) (inhabited place) [7023900]
 - Zama (Siliana government, Tunisia) (lost settlement) [6006668]

 Labels with the parents in descending order (as opposed to ascending
 order, illustrated in above examples), may be used for lists where results
 need to sort by parent; for example, all the places in one nation or state
 will sort together.
 Orl?ans .. (inhabited place)
  (World, Europe, France, Centre region, Loiret) [7008337]

 Orl?ans .. (inhabited place)

Maggie et alia,

Here's a book that is coming out that looks like it would be very useful to
you from O'Reilly Publishers.  Their publications are excellent.


The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook


From Import to Output


By

Juergen Gulbins http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/au/ , Uwe Steinmueller
http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/au/2319 

Publisher:

Rocky Nook

Released:

October 2010 (est.) 

Pages:

552 (est.)

The work that follows the capture of a photographic image - the workflow in
the digital darkroom - has a significant effect on the quality of the final
image. The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook will help you avoid crucial
mistakes as you master the craft of photographic post-processing.

This book provides a step-by-step guide through the photographic workflow,
from image capture, editing, and asset management, all the way to the
perfect photographic print. The workflow presented in this book focuses on
RAW images and is based on two of the most popular and powerful software
tools: Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.

The Digital Photography Workflow Handbook can be used as a reference or
textbook by both aspiring amateur and professional photographers, as well as
by students.
