Serbian Digital Heritage Platform Launches Using Open Source DPLA Technology
DPLA staff was pleased to hear that the Cultural Center of Novi Sad (kcns.org.rs), located in Novi Sad, Serbia, recently launched a gorgeous new digital heritage platform using DPLA’s open source technology. The platform, Digital Heritage of Novi Sad (bbns.rs), provides access to digitized cultural and historical materials from approximately 200 institutions in or around Novi Sad, the second largest city in Serbia, all searchable by place, time, and subject, much like you can do on our site. According to project leaders, they are in the final phase of equipping a modern digital laboratory with scanners and graphics processing workstations for digitizing new material into the platform. Congratulations, Novi Sad!
Interested in building your own platform? All of our open source code is publicly available at https://github.com/dpla.
