Bamboo Technology Project – Collections Interoperability

In moving from dispersed digital collections to interoperable digital libraries, the most important activity developers need to focus on is standards. – Howard Besser, 2004, "Past, Present, and Future of Digital Libraries," in A Companion to Digital Humanities, ed. Susan Schreibman, Ray Siemens, and John Unsworth. Oxford: Blackwell.

The Collections Interoperability thread of the Bamboo Technology Project, in collaboration with other threads of the project, is charged with developing, adopting, and publishing a set of guidelines, protocols, and specifications that will help content providers enhance interoperability by taking advantage of the Bamboo platform.
