Spotlight (see Gihub repository) is an open source application – a plugin to Blacklight – that allows librarians, curators, and content experts to showcase and contextualize digital collections using self-service workflows. The Spotlight Community is comprised of an ecosystem of IT service managers, software developers, user experience designers, collection managers and more. To foster greater community collaboration and leverage our collective expertise, this wiki is intended as a key venue to share information cross-institutionally. This space will initially have a service management focus, but it is intended to grow organically and change over time to support the needs of the community.
