Indiana University, in partnership with Northwestern University, has been awarded a collaborative planning grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to support the Variations on Video project.
This six-month planning project ran from August 2010 - January 2011 and focused on defining the scope, requirements, and technical architecture for building on IU's open source Variations digital music library system to support the management and delivery of digital video collections and on exploring the development of a sustainable model to support implementation of these capabilities and ongoing development of the system.
A project grant proposal was submitted to IMLS by IU and Northwestern in February 2011 to help fund initial implementation.
