We haven’t yet branded the interface — but we have loaded the first 3 collections of images into Steve-Museum tagging software for experimentation. These are images for which we have very little description — or none at all! We are hoping to involve our patrons in describing these pictures in their own words. This will help us develop better search and retrieval in Acumen… and it will also help us better understand how you look for things!
You need not register or log in to tag (although you can if you want to)!! To go directly to tagging click on the “start tagging” link and select some images that you’d like to describe. If you don’t like the selection, click “refresh images” at the bottom of the page.
Here’s a couple sample images:
Intrigued? Give it a try! Tag some pictures for us! We plan to rotate collections through here to add variety.
Soon we hope to ALSO add a transcription software for handwritten documents in the hopes that our patrons will enjoy transcribing old letters and such. Stay tuned.
