Snapshots - Group A

Snapshots are 7-minute presentations meant to engage and energize the audience. Presenters are asked to give a dynamic overview of their topic in a quick timeframe, with up to 24 slides. Snapshot presentations are grouped together based on an over-arching theme or idea. There are four groups (A, B, C, and D) of snapshots at the 2014 DLF Forum.

Problems and Solutions for Ingest of Humanities Articles into Institutional Repositories
Nathan Hall, Virginia Tech University

A number of authors (Madsen & Oleen, 2013) and projects (http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/hoap/Filling_the_repository) have documented some different methods for finding and efficiently processing research articles for ingest into institutional repositories. These sometimes involve using subscription-based tools such as Web of Science or SCOPUS. In addition to being subscription-based, these have the limitation of having less coverage in humanities and social science publications. This session will explore new avenues for exposing article level metadata in humanities journals in order to find publications to improve under-represented subject areas in institutional repositories.

Curating Menus: Digesting Data for Critical Humanistic Inquiry
Katie Rawson, University of Pennsylvania

This snapshot assesses of the construction and presentation of a humanistic data set. It explores provenance and categorization through the Curating Menus project (http://www.curatingmenus.org/), which uses NYPL's What's On the Menu and the Frank E. Buttolph menu collection and papers. Data curation is necessarily an act of cultural construction, and this project provides a lens to concretely and critically engage the effects of this construction. This snapshot examines the physical and intellectual work of curating and indexing the data and proposes methods for presenting data sets that foreground the context of their construction.

User Engagement with Digital Archives: A Case Study of Emblematica Online
Harriett Green, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Myung-Ja Han, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Mara Wade, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Tim Cole, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

This snapshot will present preliminary findings on a user study of Emblematica Online, a digital humanities project currently funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities to build a multi-institutional archive of digitized Renaissance emblem books. From the interview data gathered for the user study, the research update will examine user needs for granular discovery and access in digital collections, and how Emblematica Online has developed unique strategies and metadata applications through collaboration with expert scholars in the curation of the digital archive.

Bridging the Gap in Digital Collections: Application of 360 Degree Photography in Enhancing End-User Interfaces

Kinza Masood, University of Utah

The Marriott Library has been struggling to provide its end users with an experience that is rich, fulfilling, and interactive. The library has recently established a workflow that connects a camera to a rotating turntable, placed in a tent resembling a translucent igloo, with controlled lighting. By capturing a series of images of an artifact, placed on the turntable, and stitching them together, the end product is an interactive JavaScript file that the user can turn around virtually, and look at from all sides. A comprehensive description of Marriott's technology and application of this workflow is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUfohvRyZfU&feature=youtu.be

Florida Islandora: Challenges and Rewards of Collaborative Development & Implementation

Katie McCormick, Florida State University
Jean Phillips, Florida State University
Lee Dotson, University of Central Florida

This panel will present some of the challenges and rewards of collaborative development and implementation of Islandora as a common digital platform for Florida's state universities and colleges. The panel will discuss lessons learned from the migration of content from previous systems and the launch of the new Islandora-based sites. The panelists will also discuss how work occurs in an environment of continuous development. The presentation will also touch on the continued development for a statewide collection landing page for collaborative shared digital collections which will replace the current Publication of Archival Library & Museum Materials (PALMM) interface.
