Austin, Texas is famous for a thriving music scene. The contemporary scene is apparent to all who travel and move to Austin, yet the rich history and development of the music scene is hidden in various private and public collections. The Austin Music Documentation Initiative (AMDI) intends to increase access and awareness of the music history of Austin by providing a portal through which organizations and individuals can contribute metadata and thumbnails of Austin music history related materials. Under the guidance of the digital archivist at the Perry-Castaneda Library, students from the Spring 2015 section of Digital Libraries at the UT iSchool will create a proof of concept cataloging app for the AMDI. The proof of concept app will be used in support of grant applications. The end goal for this project will include a metadata schema, as well as a form and workflow for uploading metadata to a central directory.
