    Using a Content Management System for Student Digital Humanities Projects: A Pilot Run

    Get PDF
    Content management systems (CMS), a phrase that is defined pretty much how it reads--they are systems that manage digital content. If you have worked within a library’s archives, special collections, history and genealogy department, or within museums, you have probably used one either on the front end or managed digital collections on the backend. For this use case, I will share a pilot project using a newly developed content management system, Omeka S, for an undergraduate History class’ digital humanities projects

    Bridging Representation and Visualization in Prosopographic Research: A Case Study

    Get PDF
    In the last decade, the research on ancient civilizations has started to rely more and more on data science to extract knowledge on ancient societies from the written sources delivered from the past. In this paper, we combine two well-established frameworks: Linked Data to obtain a rich data structure, and Network Science to explore different research questions regarding the structure and the evolution of ancient societies. We propose a multi-disciplinary pipeline where, starting from a semantically annotated prosopographic archive, a research question is translated into a query on the archive and the obtained dataset is the input to the network model. We applied this pipeline to different archives, a Hittite and a Kassite collection of cuneiform tablets. Finally, network visualization is presented as a powerful tool to highlight both the data structure and the social network analysis results

    Digitizing and cataloging a corporate annual reports collection: a Canadian perspective

    Get PDF
    Corporate annual reports provide a snapshot of a company\u27s operations and financial status. Reviewing and comparing years of annual reports can provide a rich history of knowledge on a corporation. Preserving, storing, and digitizing Canadian annual reports has been a mission of the C.B. “Bud” Johnston Library in London, Ontario, Canada. In late 2019 when Western Libraries migrated to a new library services platform, Alma, there was a new opportunity to catalog and provide access to the digitized annual reports collection. This article describes a decade long plan to digitize the print collection by library staff and a subsequent project to provide online access to the digitized content. Included is a discussion of cataloging methods, staffing, training, inventory control, and hosting solutions

    Layer Upon Layer: Starting Small, Thinking Big, and Building Sustainable Digital Projects

    While many digital scholarship tools and computational methods can play an important role in digital humanities research at all stages, it’s usually the final output that is the most visible element of these projects. This talk will explore exhibits built using the Omeka platform with a particular focus on incorporating the Neatline plugin to create interactive maps. Continuing with maps, we will look at some possibilities for including these in projects built using the Scalar platform. We will also talk more generally about getting started with digital humanities projects and planning for sustainability

    Western Name Authority File: A Pilot Regional Name Authority Project

    Get PDF
    journal articleThe prospect of authority control in digital libraries creates unique challenges. Digital library systems and software often do not support integrated authority control, which can create issues in consistency for personal and corporate names representation in descriptive metadata. Standard practice for library metadata is to use existing controlled vocabularies such as the Library of Congress Name Authority File, but what can be done if the personal names and corporate bodies in local or regional digital collections are not represented in the Library of Congress? As digital collection managers look towards providing metadata for regional and statewide shared repository systems and national digital collection aggregators like the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), issues in digital collection authority control are magnified. This article explores the process in creating a shared regional authority file of personal names and corporate bodies existing in digital collection metadata records in several institutions throughout the Western United States. Steps in the process included reviewing data models, metadata collection, metadata deduplication and wrangling, vocabulary reconciliation, and data enhancement. Details on the process in making the Western Name Authority File accessible to the public and assessing project outcomes are included
