Presentation Title:

  • The Convergence of Past, Present and Future: ISEA Archive Innovations

Presenter(s):



Abstract:

  • This institutional presentation investigates how the preservation of past ISEA digital artifacts influences the future, defines the present and contributes to the international exchange of knowledge. The process of constructing an innovative content management system containing 30 year’s worth of data has been met with challenges as well as rewards. This presentation will critically analyze the state of the ISEA archive and discuss the innovative engine which was custom built to manage the ISEA data. It will discuss the process of dealing with thousands of digital artifacts and the connections created between archival systems. The project’s ultimate goal is to envision a unified system of knowledge within the international Electronic Arts community and the construction of the ISEA archive is a key component to realizing that goal.
