The David Booth Conservation Department, MoMA

Manages and operates the Museum’s Digital Repository for Museum Collections (DRMC), one of the first digital repositories for art at a major US museum.

Manages the day-to-day operation of an OAIS-compliant repository ecosystem to support the ingest, storage, preservation, discovery, and distribution of the Museum’s digital art collection.

Prepares art materials for ingest; examines SIP transfer and ingest status; resolves errors; ensures quality control over the ingest process from submission to storage at the object level; tracks support tickets with vendors; and liaises with programmers, IT staff, media conservation, and outside partners as needed.

The Museum’s repository ecosystem includes software applications: Archivematica and AToM/Binder by Artefactual Systems, The Museum System (TMS) by Gallery Systems, and NetX. These are supported by NoSQL document-oriented databases (Elasticsearch, MongDB, Solr, etc), REST, and JSON. Metadata standards used are primarily Dublin Core, METS, and PREMIS. All development is largely written in PHP, Javascript, and Python.

Works with internal and external partners on the ongoing development of the DRMC, which incorporates Archivematica and the application “Binder.”

Works closely and collaboratively with Information Technology (IT) on the development, maintenance, and internal management of the core technical infrastructure of the DRMC.

Works closely with Media Conservation, Registrar, curatorial, and Collection and Exhibition Technology teams on DRMC improvements and workflows.

Evaluates and tests new digital-preservation technologies, tools, and protocols.

Leads discussions with diverse stakeholders on the development of digital-preservation strategy, policy, and procedures for the DRMC.

Creates and maintains documentation and training materials.

Works with the Conservation department and the Archives on the sustainability of digital records and data pertaining to artworks in the Museum’s collection.

Actively participates in open-source development community forums and working groups related to aspects of the DRMC. Reports to the Agnes Gund Chief Conservator.
