Butler County N.O.W. Chapter Reception at Alumni Weekend

Published on June 21, 2014, by in Uncategorized.

During the past two years, a small group of students have assisted in scanning the historical documents of the Miami-Oxford Chapter of the National Organization for Women, as well as, cataloguing items for easy retrieval for interested researchers.

On Saturday, June 21, the Center for Digital Scholarship was proud to host an informal reception and exhibit of the project during Miami University’s Alumni Weekend. Visitors were able to peruse the T-Shirt collection and buttons as insight into the rhetoric of the women’s movement. Albums with pictures and local chapter newsletters were available for viewing as well. Student presentations from the work conducted this past spring were also playing on the digital displays in the Center.

Projects UPDATE: Part 1

Published on June 10, 2014, by in faculty projects.

As we transition to a summer mode and adapt our service model to meet the library and university goals, below is a first list of example projects that our team is currently working on or getting ready to complete.

NEW Digital Collections Portal, we recently launched a redesigned and upgraded website for the Library’s Digital Collections; the new system is running on CONTENTdm 6.6 and three of the many new features include: a) a better image viewer for jpg, jp2 and tiff files; b) a page-by-page viewer/download for PDF files; and c) a more friendly web interface for customizing the site’s look-and-feel. CONTENTdm is also now being used for more scholarly digital collections, its flexibility to work well with other systems like Kaltura for video streaming as well as the batch import/export functionalities are always important.

Miami University Libraries - Digital Collections

Scholarly Commons, the university institutional repository is also undergoing a major content restructure, the new layout which will include a top-level collection for each author will enable better browsing and searching mechanisms which will subsequently make the repository more discoverable and easy to use. Additionally, we’re evaluating the new Mirage 2 and responsive theme, as much as we liked our own Mobile Theme, there are many reasons to switch to a fully responsive solution … of course, there is still some changes we need to implement, but overall, this is a great improvement for the DSpace community –thanks a lot atmire!

DWAE e-book, the revised ePUB version for the Digital Writing & Assessment Evaluation ebook is currently in its final review and very soon we hope that everyone will be able to download the ePUB or MOBI versions on the book’s website. Some of the lessons learned include: a) always validate HTML & ePUB files as ebook readers are very strict; b) keep TOC and navigation links simple and useful; c) use external links for multimedia and PDF files; d) tables, especially complex tables can be very problematic; and e) CSS is a good friend for layout … we’ll always appreciate the magic of this line: -webkit-hyphens:none;

DWAE ePUB

NEH DH Start-Up Grant, a team member of the Center for Digital Scholarship is working with two faculty members on an NEH grant Orientation to the Mississippi Summer Project: An Interactive Quest for Social Justice.  The work officially began in May and last week the team hosted an “ideation day” session where over 15 high school and Miami students helped brainstorm/discuss and produce a design document, which is currently in review with the DH consultants. For this phase of the project, the team has selected ARIS and they expect to have a digital/functional prototype in early September … stayed tuned!

Digital Literacy Partnership at Miami University

Published on March 3, 2014, by in faculty projects.

The Center for Digital Scholarship is pleased to announce the launch of the Digital Literacy Partnership website which promotes the contributions of literacy, health, and technology on learning. This collaborative project between Valerie Ubbes, Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health, and the University Libraries started in the late 1990s as the Children’s Picture Book Database at Miami University.

Digital Literacy Partnership at Miami University

The new site runs on three Omeka and interdisciplinary databases and the content includes print and electronic materials for children, youth, and adults. For the CDS team, this project has been an excellent opportunity to install/test/customize several Omeka plugins (e.g. CSV Import, Simple Pages, Contribution) as well as to integrate some jQuery lines to meet the project requirements.

Team Member Training

Published on January 16, 2014, by in Uncategorized.

Tuesday, January 14th, Team Member Training was held in the Center for Digital Scholarship.  Team member training is a workshop  in which all recent library hires take part. The purpose of this workshop is for new hires to meet each other and put faces with names that they might not encounter during their normal duties and  also to educate them on the principles of team membership and other practical workplace skills.  This year’s group was made up of employees from different departments and libraries and resulted in an enjoyable and informative experience.

If your department is considering putting on a workshop or conference, consider using the Center for Digital Scholarship as a highly suitable location.  The versatility of the space and in-house technology makes it a flexible and convenient venue.  This versatility proved valuable to Team Member Training, as we moved around the center for discussion and exercises.  I tweeted the event throughout the day and those captured comments are displayed below.  We would like to thank the participants of this year’s Team Member training and  we  look forward to hosting an event for your department or class in the future.

Please contact us at 529-2871 with any questions.

Coming soon to a library near you

Published on November 4, 2013, by in Uncategorized.

This weekend the third floor of the  library was filled with students from Capstone Pictures, a  COM 414 capstone class that completed its filming in the Center for Digital Scholarship. Over the course of three days, students filmed a large scale production complete with hired actors, extensive light and camera rigging, and a production crew.  Though the finished product is still in development, check back to the CDS website for updates.

Quick Tour of Selected Digital Humanities Tools

Published on September 13, 2013, by in blog.

The number and variety of tools available to the Digital Humanities community has been growing exponentially in recent years. Many have been developed by DH scholars and are freely available to anyone with an internet connection. There are currently 700 entries in DiRT – a database of tools for the Digital Humanities community. If you are new to DH it can be hard to know where to begin. Even with experience it’s not always easy to find the right tool for the job. Which is one reason for the proliferation of tools – sometimes you have to create your own.

For those new to the field, I’ve selected a few tools that might be a good place to start, found related resources that provide more information and put them together in the virtual tour presented above. In addition to a screenshot and link to the DiRT database, the tour includes screencasts that provide overviews of: OMEKA – an easy to use platform for creating collections of digital objects and mounting digital exhibits, LORE – a Zotero based tool for annotating digital objects, VOYANT – a suite of tools for exploring texts, TAPoR – an online environment for text analysis, and Scalar – a non-linear multimedia platform for scholarly publishing. For inspiration I’ve added videocasts with information on two well known projects: “Transcribe Bentham” and “Digital Thoreau”. But that’s just the beginning … a wealth of tools, methods and inspirational projects are just waiting to be discovered.

Welcome Back

Welcome back faculty and students!  As everyone settles into new routines, we are also getting well settled into our new space and services.  The Center was very fortunate to have a large turnout for our Open House in May and we have enjoyed significant traffic over the summer.  In the coming weeks we hope you will have a chance to come in and meet with our staff and see what assistance we can be of with your upcoming projects.  Drop in any time between 9:00a and 5:00p or call us at 513.529.2871 and make an appointment.  Welcome back and good luck in the new school year!

Renovation Update: 1/30

Published on January 30, 2013, by in Uncategorized.

Last week the last major component of the Center was installed, the storefront enclosing the conference room.  All that remains are a few minor items on the “punch list”  consisting of the remaining todo items to be completed before the contractor can consider the job done.

In case you’ve ever wondered, the name punch list most likely comes from the early practice of punching a hole through two copies of the list to indicate to both the architect and the contractor that the work was completed for that task.

Final inspections are scheduled for the end of this week.  If everything passes as expected, we may begin moving in next week.

Until then, here are some photos of the new conference room:

Renovation Update: 1/25

Published on January 25, 2013, by in Uncategorized.

A lot has happened since our last update.  In fact, the project is rapidly nearing completion!  Since we returned in early January, most of the electrical and lighting reconfiguration has been completed, life safety equipment installed, doors and finishes installed, and some small modification to the carpet have been completed.

The last major installation will be happening this week with the arrival of the conference room storefront and ceiling lighting.  Overall, we are on track to complete the project by the first week in February.

As always, here are a few of the latest pictures:
