Mander Jones Award Winner – Category 3

Adelaide Connect: Discover the University of Adelaide’s special collections, https://connect.adelaide.edu.au/

This is an innovative portal leading researcher to the information they seek across multiple formats.

Its search function is precise and accurate, and the metadata includes the original item or collection number to help find similar items. This provides an effective system that could be a model for other institutions wishing to provide a way into their collections.

DatacomIT is thrilled to have helped implement the award-winning special collections platform, Recollect, for the University of Adelaide. Recollect was selected by the University as the preferred platform for Adelaide Connect, and we’re overjoyed to have played a part in assisting with showcasing the university’s special collections.

Recollect is a powerful and highly configurable software platform that is grounded in five key principles: discover, access, engage, manage, and preserve. It can be delivered to customers anywhere in the world through a software-as-a-service subscription and is hosted on trusted Amazon Web Services. Recollect’s scalable architecture ensures customers, both small and large, are supported.

DatacomIT were honoured to attend the award ceremony, as we helped sponsor the event.
