2015 Conference

The objective of the gathering is to bring together institutions and developers with shared needs, and assemble around a shared set of solutions and technical components.  With technology contributions from peer institutions, shared products for digital cultural heritage offer the critical building blocks for a complete suite of solutions -- from digitization workflow to digital asset management, from preservation to discovery and delivery.

Major topics at LDCX will be Archives and ArcLight, Geospatial data, Image data and topics in the Hydra space such as Fedora4, gems and shared data modeling.
