The MetaData Assignment and Search Tool (MAST) is a computer assisted cataloguing system that enables museums to efficiently describe and disseminate their digital materials and to make them fully available in a digital library or searchable via Web services from their own Web site. One of the primary goals of this project is to make the publishing of digital collections easier for small museums.
