OSCI Toolkit

I recently discovered that IMA Lab, the web design and development consultancy at the Indiana Museum of Art, have created a toolkit for the Online Scholarly Catalog Initiative, launched by the Getty Foundation in 2009.

The toolkit is an open-source project that allows museums, galleries, and other cultural institutions to create their own online catalogs. The toolkit offers an overview of the architecture necessary for the project, tutorials, a link to the GitHub page, and a demo site allowing people to play around with the tools.

Update: about a month ago, the IMA Lab provided a YouTube video explaining the OSCI Toolkit and gave a brief demonstration on how to use it. More information can be found here.
