Introduction to Mukurtu Content Management System (CMS): Providing Digital Access to Cultural Collections

This Sustainable Heritage Network-sponsored workshop focused on the use of Mukurtu CMS in tribal archives, libraries and museums. Mukurtu CMS, developed with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, is a free content management system that allows communities to preserve, share, manage, license and curate their digital heritage and stories using their own cultural protocols, languages and social values. In this workshop, participants received hands-on training in setting up a Mukurtu site, implementing Mukurtu's core features including a dictionary and mobile application, and the step-by-step procedures to curate digital heritage items utilizing Mukurtu CMS. Participants were shown examples of Mukurtu in use in communities emphasizing preservation strategies, cultural protocols and the use of traditional knowledge labels.
