Mukurtu (MOOK-oo-too) is a grassroots project aiming to empower communities to manage, share, narrate, and exchange their digital heritage in culturally relevant and ethically-minded ways. We are committed to maintaining an open, community-driven approach to Mukurtu’s continued development. Our first priority is to help build a platform that fosters relationships of respect and trust. Mukurtu CMS has been developed as an access platform and is intended to serve as one component in your larger digital stewardship ecosystem (access, preservation, sustainability). If you are planning to include use of Mukurtu CMS in a grant proposal, keep this in mind. A successful digital project plan will address the tools, resources, staff, and workflows for digitization (if relevant), preservation, description, access, and long-term sustainability. The open-source code for Mukurtu CMS is developed and maintained by the Mukurtu team at the Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation at Washington State University. We consult with communities and organizations to identify new features, improvements, and to help us test and provide feedback on long and short term development.
Here you will find the resources we have used in all of our Mukurtu introductory workshops.
