Abstract

While institutional repositories are proficient in managing text-based research such as articles, papers, books and theses, they are not yet attuned to the requirements of images and time-based media. One effect of this is that research activity in the creative and applied arts is currently underrepresented within IRs. The Kultur project aims to change this by creating a sustainable institutional repository model for research output in the creative and applied arts. It is investigating a policy and technical framework for establishing a multimedia, multifunctional repository, which will then be transferable to specialist institutions and departments across the sector, and by extension, to potential cross-domain users – museums, galleries, and performing arts organisations. Kultur is a collaboration between the University of Southampton, the University of the Arts London, University College for the Creative Arts, and the Visual Arts Data Service, and is being funded under the ‘Start-up and Enhancement’ strand of JISC’s Repositories and Preservation Programme.
