Abstract

The age of digital information has arrived with the development of computer science and technology. In Taiwan, the “National Digital Archives Program” (NDAP) has been launched and sponsored for the new era by the National Science Council (NSC) since the year of 2002. It is a national long-term plan with the ultimate mission of preserving and sustaining the culture and civilization of mankind.In Taiwan, Taichung County has been famous for its traditional weaving and knitting art patterns. One of the major tasks of the Knitting Museum of Taichung County Cultural Center (KMTCCC) is to discover and collect different kinds of braids, weaves, knits, dyes, and embroideries throughout Taiwan. To share these resources and conform to the Value-added Program of the National Science Council (NSC), the purpose of study was to integrate most of the KMTCCC's archives and collections into a Plant Dyeing and Knitting Art Digital Learning and Value-added Center. This center is a valuable resource for the academic, industrial, and business sectors.This study used documentary analysis, field study, and questionnaire survey to construct the Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Art Digital Learning and Value-added Center. The research began with collecting traditional dyeing, weaving, and knitting artworks and related literary materials to develop digital contents of the academic sector. Meanwhile, the study conducted many field studies to collect and assemble Taiwan's plant dyeing, weaving, and knitting database.The main contribution of this project was to consolidate information sources on knitting art and dyeing materials, and to apply this data for the benefit of the academic, industrial, and business sectors. The results of the Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Art Digital Learning and Value-added Center consist of “Dyeing Center,” “Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Education Center,” “Dyeing and Design Center,” “On-line Interactive Learning Center, ” “Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Blog,” “Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Resource Database,” “e-Market,” and “Promotion Activities of Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Arts and Culture.” The Plant Dyeing, Weaving, and Knitting Art Digital Learning and Value-added Center can be retrieved from: http://www.ntua.edu.tw/∼gca/nsc/plant.html.
