One Publisher, Many Platforms

Much like many of our peer institutions, the Art Institute of Chicago has been focused on publishing digitally for many years now. We are interested both in finding a digital home for existing content (out of print titles, collection information, exhibition brochures, etc.) and finding a reliable and flexible way of publishing future content. Unfortunately, many of the digital publishing solutions and platforms that are useful for mainstream publishers are not well-suited to museum publishing.The department of publishing at the Art Institute of Chicago has embarked on various digital publishing initiatives. Some of have been internal experiments while others have been large ambitions such as our online scholarly catalogues. During this presentation, we will discuss our various experiences with multiple established platforms such as iAuthor, Mag+, and Adobe DPS as well as custom web-based applications such as the OSCI-Toolkit. We’ll cover not only the pros and cons of our experiences, but also the advantages of one institution exploring various digital platforms.
