Stacie contributed to the open-source software, Coyote, that was developed by the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago to support a distributed workflow for describing images in a web CMS and publishing those descriptions to a public website. The MCA team is creating both alt-text descriptions of 20–30 words, as well as much longer descriptions, particularly of collection works.

Coyote offers role-based logins to facilitate image description tasks. Administrators approve, assign, and review descriptions. Cataloguers create descriptions from an assignment queue or select images to describe.
