dMuseion: Digital museums
dMuseion is a complex system for building digital museums. It allows accessing digital versions of cultural heritage monuments via the Internet. dMuseion is dedicated to museums and cultural heritage institutions which maintain mainly visual arts holdings.
dMuseion functionality is mainly focused on visual art holdings. The most important characteristics in this context are: thumbnails and miniarutres, support for 3D objects, virtual exhibitions and categorisation of resources. Additionally, dMuseion can be easily configured to communicate with inventory systems which helps curatos in their day to day work (e.g. adding new digital objects). Build-in OAI-PMH repository makes it very easy to publish information on external portals such as Europeana.
Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center is involved in various initiatives and projects related to online availability of cultural heritage resources. For instance PSNC develops dLibra system, which is the most popular software for building digital libraries in Poland. Currently over 60 digital libraries in Poland are based on dLibra. All these libraries use PIONIER network and create together Polish platform of digital libraries of which an important element is Digital Libraries Federation.
