André Studios Digital Archive

Last week, Archivist Round Table hosted a great event, which focused on FIT and NYPL’s partnership to digitize and provide access to the André Studios archive of fashion sketches.

Tech meets textiles with the recent completion of the digital archive project presented in collaboration between the two institutions. They used Blacklight for the faceted search with Ruby on Rails and Solr indexing. Jpeg 2000 allows for unbelievable quality high res images with exceptional zoom capabilities.
