System architecture — Urban Archive

I am a founding team member of Urban Archive, a New York City based nonprofit. We are working to organize and display the digital collections of local museums and historical foundations, in a way that benefits the institutions and educates the public.

My main focus has been on digital archiving and collection management tools. This includes a CMS that we use to enrich content by locating, combining, and writing about it. As of August 2018, Urban Archive folks have written almost 5,000 posts about NYC history.
