OSCI Toolkit

The OSCI Toolkit is an open-source project of the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) to create a suite of tools that facilitates the publishing and broad dissemination of online scholarly catalogues for art history. In 2011, the IMA was awarded a grant from the Getty Foundation to support the project as part of its Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI), which aims to create replicable models for museum collection catalogues in the online environment. This current project builds upon the conceptual framework and prototype software developed at the direction of the Art Institute of Chicago during the initial OSCI grant cycle from 2009-2011.
