Local Firm to develop first open source digital library for the Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture

Innovativ Consulting Partners
, a leading open source consultant and service provider for online solutions, has contracted with The Ohio State University Knowlton School of Architecture to develop a digital library for the school’s media. This library will be based upon the Drupal web content management system and will be a first for the University. Also included in the assignment is the design, and deployment of Shibboleth identity management and a web 2.0 based framework.

“This site will give us the ability to create a more unified web presence for the School of Architecture and will serve as the platform for our Open Educational Resources. We hope that it will serve as a model for other robust open source media libraries across campus and beyond. s” – Lorrie McAllister, Digital Resources Curator

About the Knowlton School of Architecture:

Housed in Knowlton Hall on The Ohio State University main campus, the Knowlton School of Architecture offers undergraduate and graduate programs in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and City and Regional Planning. These multi-faceted disciplines both enhance and sustain natural and man-made settings, ranging from buildings and sites to neighborhoods, cities, and regions, all of which are subject to diverse and conflicting economic, social, ecological, cultural, and aesthetic objectives and constraints. These disciplines borrow from the arts and sciences, calling for creativity and imagination in design and planning at various scales, and for technical skills in understanding and forecasting the evolution of the environments in which we live.
