Our collection project architecture is openly available. Project code is open source and can be found on Barnes Foundation github. Project documentation and lessons learned—told through the voices of many staff, engineers, and consultants—is available on the Barnes Foundation publication on Medium.
The Barnes Foundation collection online is made possible by generous support from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
Ongoing work continues through the Knight Center for Digital Innovation in Audience Engagement at the Barnes.
