2

3 2005

4 work starts on a permanent design gallery

5 proposed exhibition designer is based in Italy

6 Emu commissioned to build a narratives pilot

7 collect, order, display objects for designer and curators

8 exhibition ends up being designed inhouse

9 web team modifies the narratives pilot

10 database kiosks for exhibition

11

12 kiosks were intended to go public in a modifed form for the web

13 concern over rights and permissions on some objects

14 next step for narratives was a public microsite

15 hedda morrison project

16

17 two previous exhibitions of images

18 curator and intern rewrote and compiled content

19 new images taken

20 site took nearly 6 months of curator rechecking before launch

21 opac 2.0

22 museum contributed ~50,000 records to AMOL in 2001

23 never able to be updated since

24 AMOL replaced by CAN

25 CAN seeks PHM materials for harvest

26 why on CAN but not on Museum’s own site?

27 june 2006

28 opac 2.0 launches

29

30 previously the museum had 150 key objects online plus a few specialist collections

31 now ~70% of active collection online

32 extensive user tracking and realtime analysis

33 built entirely in-house

34 modular

35 flexible

36 able to quickly respond to user needs

37 greatly reduced future cost of similar development and microsites

38 ‘amazon-like’ recommendations and serendipitous discovery

39

40 object and subject thesaurus links for education users

41

42 plus user tagging (folksonomies)

43

44 extensive google integration

45 opensearch enabled

46

47 also allows CAN to search without needing to harvest

48

49 opac 2.0 is popular

50 museum website traffic has massively increased

51

52 ~30,000 object records viewed daily

53 ~13,000 successful searches daily

54 ~7,500 tag cloud searches daily

55 95% of all available objects visited at least once in first ten weeks

56

57 1.8 million individual objects viewed in first ten weeks

58 each user views on average 5 objects per visit

59 over 1,500 user tags added since mid June

60 tripling of public collection enquiries

61 public is helping correct old records

62

63 subject terms being improved from selected folksonomy terms

64 success is prompting organisational change

65 reinvigorating the collection

66

67 how does it work?

68 frontend built in PHP, with heavy use of CSS and AJAX

69 backend database is MS-SQL with full text indexing

70 MS SQL was an institutional choice MySQL considered

71 uses Emu narratives module to organise objects to be presented

72 periodic harvest of relevant objects from Emu to MS SQL

73 only selected fields

74 import is from parsing XML output from Emu

75 SQL database also contains tracking and tag tables

76 separate to prevent data corruption and increase speed

77 this allows for more granular control and safeguards

78 more detail on our emu setup?

79 accessioned objects with valid storage location

80 generally whole objects except coins

81 only harvests selected fields

82 PHM thesaurus is used to aid discovery

83 object name, object category and subject fields

84 images and rights?

85

86 what next?

87

88 still refining search

89 building up user profiles to inform and weight search results

90 interface and usability improvements

91 integration of department of education thesauri

92 rebuilding to create an internal version for quick Emu browsing and image management

93 experimental browsing and visualisation tools

94

95

96 we are at the beginning, not the end

97 design hub launched august

98 part of 3 year ARC project with UWS and UTS

99 new audience- specific front end
