I. Problem/Value Statement

Problem Statement: Collection Builder is a library staff tool that allows staff to define the contents of collections based on metadata within LibraryCloud, and browse collections created by others. The metadata represented by each collection is intended to be exportable to Exhibit and Digital Collection discovery tools such as Omeka and Spotlight, and search aggregators, such as DPLA. 

Business Value:

CNA 2.0 is a step towards conceptualizing a standard digital library and exhibit platform for the Harvard Library that can serve as a model for future on-line collections.

II. Vision and Approach

Describe the solution: POD Consulting has been engaged by Suzanne Wones to enhance the existing Collection Builder prototype to bring it to a state where it can be used in production
