Project Introduction

To fully capture a century of Steelcase, DSpace was used as a platform for stories and memories from the many people who are part of the Steelcase family—employees and their families, dealers and designers, customers and members of the many communities where Steelcase has a presence. With this system, Steelcase aims to create a deeper record of the company’s heritage—from the heroic to the hilarious, from the astonishing to the inspiring. @mire was challenged to implement a user friendly solution for the entry of metadata in multiple languages.
