John Kunze’s JCDL 2023 Presentation Highlights ARKs and YAMZ

John Kunze’s tutorial on ARKs (Archival Resource Keys) delivered at JCDL and his work on YAMZ was mentioned prominently in Lesley Frew’s blogpost at the Web Science and Digital Libraries Group at Old Dominion University, “”Up and running with ARK persistable identifiers” JCDL Tutorial Trip Report.” ARK persistent identifiers form one of the primary features of the YAMZ application and help ensure continuity of terminology.


Metadata at the Mütter Museum

As part of Archives Month in Philly, the Historical Medical Library of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia are hosting a special pop-up exhibit entitled
From Oyntments & Salves to Kotex & Pills.” MRC Graduate Research Assistant and LEADS Project Manager Carly Schanock created metadata for the exhibit, determining structure and meaning through the creation of labels.

The limited exhibit runs from 5:30-7pm on Tuesday, October 9th, at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia.
