Conference poster for Samvera Connect 2017 at Northwestern University. Samvera Connect is a chance for the Samvera community to gather in one place at one time, with an emphasis on synchronizing efforts, technical development, plans, and community links. The community is centered around open source software that is created and used by cultural institutions, like museums and libraries, to store, preserve, and share information and resources to the public and for research.
Cultural Heritage Objects is a new project at Penn State that is replacing a third party application for the preservation and sharing of collection resources. Librarians and other library staff will export and import data from the old system to the new system, as well as, create new collections in the new system.
The poster was created for the poster session at the conference, so that we could speak with fellow members of the community about our project. In the sea of chart and science fair type posters, we decided to use elements from the collections in a more modern, eye-catching poster.
