Open Book project

Building on our track record of succesful collaboration with University of Cambridge's Fitzwilliam Museum, which has been established in the Contextual Wrappers 1 and 2 projects, K-Int began work on another JISC funded project - Open Book - on 1 February 2012.

Lexaurus Bank

Lexaurus Bank version 5 was released in December 2011. It is a powerful terminology management system for publishing term or concept based vocabularies, concept schemes, data definitions, taxonomies and thesauri.

It facilitates the import, export and cross-mapping of terminology structures in a variety of formats currently supporting SKOS, VDEX (token and nested), XVD, ESD Toolkit, Zthes,i2b2 (ontology and concept) and Snomed.

New R&D project - Social Interpretation and Cultural Exchange (SICE)

k-int will partner with the Imperial War Museum and University College London to deliver this innovative project funded under the  Digital Research and Development Fund for Arts and Culture run by Arts Council England, the Arts and Humanities Research Counil (AHRC) and Nesta.

New Product Launch: Collections Connect

K-Int, in collaboration with Gooii Ltd, used the Open Culture 2011 event in Brimingham to announce the launch of a new product - Collections Connect.  Collections Connect has been developed based on work already undertaken for clients including Museum of London, National Maritime Museum, Imperial War Museum and Horniman Museum.

MEDIA project begins

K-Int began work on 1 June on a new 18 month collaborative R&D project part funded by the Technology Strategy Board's  "Metadata: increasing the value of digital content" programme.  The project is led by Soutron Ltd with Collections Trust and the Chartered institute of Management as partners in addition to k-int.

Europeana Inside proposal

K-Int is part of a consortium of 26 organisations, including systems vendors and cultural institutions from 11 european countries, which has submitted a proposal to the European Commission's ICT Policy Support programme.  The proposed 30 month project will open up millions of new records to the european public via the europeana portal by improving the co-ordination and workflow between institutional collections management systems, aggregators (such as Culture Grid) and europeana.

Culture Grid in the news

Following the official launch of the new culture grid website, there has been a massive upsurge in interest in the Grid, which now contains over 1 million metadata records.

Museum of London

k-int are currently working with the Museum of London to implement a new, RDF based, Collections Information Integration Module (CIIM) as part of the Museum's Collections Online Delivery service.

Collections Trust on Culture Grid

Collections Trust have launched a campaign to promote the benefits of the Culture Gird to organisations in the Museums, Archives and Libraries Sector.  More details are on the Collections Trust website.

New k-int website launched

The k-int website has been uodated (about time, too, we hear people say!). As committed supporters of open source software we've chosen to implement the new site using drupal as we feel this currently represents one of the most functional and usable content management systems available. Hopefully this will encourage us update the site more frequently in future.
