to the Kultur Project
is JISC-funded project which is creating a model of an institutional repository
for use in the creative and applied arts.
institutional repositories are proficient in managing text-based research
such as articles, books, and theses, they are not yet attuned to the requirements
of images and time-based media. The Kultur project aims to change this
by creating a flexible multimedia repository that will be able to showcase
a wide range of outputs, from digital versions of painting, photography,
film, graphic and textile design, to records of performances, shows and
is a two year project scheduled for completion in March 2009. The project
partners are the University of Southampton, University of the Arts London,
University for the Creative Arts, and the Visual Arts Data Service. Leiden
University is an associate partner.
