Steve tagger

I struggled a little on this last day of open source goodness for archives. So I've put together a post about the Steve Museum project. Although a museum focused project and an art museum one at that, I think that the tools Steve is developing can and will be equally applicable to any digital image whether it is an artifact, bookplate or document.

"Steve is a collaborative research project exploring the potential for user-generated descriptions of the subjects of works of art to improve access to museum collections and encourage engagement with cultural content." Further information about the project is available here:

The Steve project team has developed a suite of open source tools that enable tagging of museum collections and the review, analysis, and management of tags. And the open source tools (including the Steve tagger, a term review tool, and a reporting tool) themselves are available to download here.
