IsisCB Platform Development

IsisCB Platform Development

Our digital platform is currently being developed by the consulting team, A Place Called Up, run by Erick Peirson and Julia Damerow. The web interface is being written in Django with a PostgreSQL backend. All citations and authority records will have stable URIs and will be accessible via the primary interface as well as through a REST API. We will be doing user testing over the next two months and will be going live with the first public version at the end of October, but we will be continuing development over the subsequent months. (We invite anyone who is interested in working with us on user testing and feedback to contact Stephen Weldon directly.)

In addition, two of the Isis Cumulative Bibliographies (1913-1965, and 1966-1975), are being manually entered this fall to create TEI documents that can be ingested into the IsisCB database. We are receiving the services of Conal Tuohy (Annerley, Australia) to prepare the specifications and do much of the post-processing of the data. The actual data entry will be accomplished by AccessTEI, a digitization program partnership between Apex CoVantage, LLC. and the TEI Consortium.
