Description

The Computer History Museum (CHM) had its own mini deluge of digital data. Our in-house produced high definition oral histories, lectures and exhibition videos were usurping our available server space at over 60 terabytes, with another 10 terabytes of historic digital artifacts including images and software. With the aid of grant funds from Google.org, CHM took on the work of creating a prototype digital repository in one year. The digital repository working group is excited about the possibilities the new repository represents for expanding our digital collection while putting the Museum in the forefront of small cultural institutions creating digital repositories and we hope to share what we have learned with other similar organizations.
