Introduction to Spotlight

Spotlight is an open source application that extends the digital library ecosystem by providing a means for institutions to reuse digital content in easy-to-produce, attractive, and scholarly-oriented websites. Librarians, curators, and other content experts can build Spotlight exhibits to showcase digital collections using a self-service workflow for selection, arrangement, curation, and presentation.

This workshop will introduce the main features of Spotlight and present examples of Spotlight-built exhibits from the community of adopters. We'll also describe the technical requirements for adopting Spotlight and highlight the potential to customize and extend Spotlight's capabilities for their own needs while contributing to its growth as an open source project.
