Technology

The Center is committed to using technology to make its collections as accessible as possible. Its collection data is exposed via the web in both a human- and machine-readable format. The human-readable format, the online collection, allows users to search and view documents as well as images through the web and on mobile devices.

As the Center continues to expose its collection, museum colleagues will strive to allow access through other applications and devices. The Center is also open to others developing alternative access interfaces to the collection. The related resources section of the website provides links to resources featuring the Center’s collections. To support these efforts, access to collection data in a machine-readable format is available. 

Machine-readable data can be accessed by harvesting XML metadata and querying Linked Open Data semantic endpoint. Access to, or use of, the museum’s data and services are subject to the Center’s Open Data And Data Services Terms of Use.
