###Friday 20 June


####Introduction to Omeka

LAMP stack. Linux, Apache/MySQL, PHP, Application

  • likely Windows though... So WAMP...
  • Items stored in MySQL ... standard CMS structure.

[installation quite complex - but all GUI, no command line, 1/2 hour job in first training instance]

http://localhost/phpmyadmin/

http://localhost/omeka/install/

Omeka error messages not super useful.

Omeka.net a basic setup option.

http://localhost/omeka/admin

Omeka 2 has SimplePages as a default. Better functionality than Omeka 1.

Neatline.

Installing plugins simple: drop folder into the \xampp\htdocs\omeka\plugins folder, then appears as an option to install in Omeka dashboard. Biggest hurdle not having Wordpress style plugin install.

Configuring theme easy. Themes has constant structure in the folder. Easy to edit .css et al.

Omeka runs on items, collections, exhibits. Granular settings very powerful, around search/indexing, how files are made public (yes/no item level), configure an API.

Users settings - you can add editor and contributor roles - again, granular access.

Structure of Omeka.

  • Dublin Core metadata. Item (contain metadata and usually files that are associated with it too) management kinda tricky though. So can be tough to scale up. What files you can add limited to file exceptions in security settings.
  • Items assigned to collection. Hierarchy of content that is easier to manage.

Used just for exhibits, or as a digital library ... flexible platform. But exhibit builder core in v2 as community favouring the former.

http://ldhi.library.cofc.edu/ built on Omeka.

Exhibit 2.2 here. 3 in alpha, major changes...

Building an exhibit. Pages are what people see and where we add items. Page level layout options. Can write some more. v3 granular page building from blocks.

Item records don't look good - better for digital libraries, so CofC edited exhibit builder to not read folks to ugly pages but rather a light box.

Pages can be nested through drag and drop interface.

Collections as a way to help make searching easier.

Batch importing files not possible. Though description is. Ideal for exhibitions because you are usually customising, tweaking.

Omeka has excellent documentation http://omeka.org/codex/Documentation Keeps up to date. As as with Zotero, good forum.

Delete button is dangerous - perhaps should be less accessible...


####Ferrante, DH: A Voyage of Discovery

Transcription - can it contribute to creating new knowledge? [well yes, but important point perhaps is how to bring to the service of knowledge - transcription alone doesn't create knowledge]

Field Book Project (2010) - early project.

Now Transcription Centre - variety of stuff to transribe available

918 active users -- 4k registered users (though you don't need to sign up) - 100k+ transcription activities -- open door ethos, including crowdsourced peer review.

Users feel meaning of their contribution. Though challenging to attribute their work.

Deliberatively iterative. Voyage of Discovery around use patterns > expected users to be retired faculty, postdocs, et al - got randoms, the public at large.

Users didn't want leaderboards, gamification > they wanted to feel closer involvement, trips behind the scenes, et cetera.

  • Staff buy-in
  • Reluctant parties - "crowd can't do quality"; "only paying people can get it done right"
  • Organisational buy-in
  • Helped that crowd came and produced lots of quality - but need to push on presumptions, assumptions nonetheless.
  • Resources/skills/funding
  • Use exisiting IT/structures/skills! - repurpose to new need.

Well catalogued collections were the focus

collections.si.edu

  • full text indexing of transcription here
  • with confidence levels assigned to transcriptions for the benefit of users.

"Partnering with the public to create new knowledge"

Flagging of volunteer work to guard against reputational problems re accuracy

  • staff approvals in some areas of the Smithsonian Centre [isn't this doubling the effort?]

Not a single press release about the Transcription Centre -- and yet lots of work has been done [curiously guarded approach - fear of reputational problems?]

####102 Reaching our (Full, Digital) Potential, University of North Carolina

Focus on the archive.

Laurie Clark Brown

Oral history - challenging whether physical, digitised, or born digital. Archival, not-bibliographic, but often requiring bibliographic treatment. Transcripts, rich metadata.

Using Vimeo for similar reasons, but also because of lack of home infrastructure for streaming video.

Seth Kotch

Collaborative work with students to make oral history archives useable and accessible.

Using DH Press (Wordpress plugin) to build faceted and multiple access point (eg maps) for exploring a collection http://dhpress.org/ > eg Mapping the Long Women's Movement http://projects.dhpress.org/lwm/dhp-projects/long-womens-movement/

Common disconnect between an oral history source and why you found it - problem of categorising oral history and exploring something as a researcher that doesn't have an index.

Relationship between the testimony and transcriptions complex...

Yesssss. How transcripts take researchers away from audio content. #dhlibchs

Liz Milewicz (Duke) - Innovate and Curate: helping collaborative DH research projects persist beyond the experiment

How can we (can we, should we) curate humanities research derived from an experiment? Capturing DH Labs.

.@LizMilewicz asks whether the library should curate DH research materials that were created as part of experiments/courses/labs #dhlibchs

— Trevor Munoz (@trevormunoz) June 21, 2014
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

How do you curate something constructed in a context of experiment?

"Purposeful curation" - researchers don't identify with separating their data/digital stuff from the rest of their research stuff.

Connecting best practice with real practice complex. We know the practice of creating, say, digital images from a text, we don't know the practice of doing experimental DH work in the field. So we have to learn and not yoke the real practice to the best practice we want -- identify best as possible the basic information needed for access and use.

Data Curation Profiles Toolkit http://datacurationprofiles.org/ - intended as a conversation starter around how to manage data, make something reusable out of it. But challenge that humanities scholars not typically thinking about curation of their data - asking researchers what they want to do with their data to frame low barrier curation need.

Haiti Lab Field Experience http://www.fhi.duke.edu/labs/haiti-lab/research-projects-working-groups

Best practice for data creation in Humanities Labs - what is the role of librarians in this process? - advocating for the future potential of researchers' work; educators around things we don't know the answers to; partner in research.

#dhlibchs Really like @LizMilewicz's three roles for librarians in supporting digital research curation: advocate, educate, partner

####Emily Gore, DPLA

Public. Aggregation of metadata. Access options of maps, timeline et cetera - with curation around exhibitions.

Platform for apps, services - open linked metadata CCO - all partners must CC0 their metadata.

Advocate for public option, open publishing. Value of partnerships.

Service hubs aggregate content for local area to get it into DPLA. Content hubs very large institutions whose relationship with DPLA is 1-1. If all based on content hubs, DPLA would have sustainability issues...

12 content hubs, 9 service hubs, sharing 9.9 million items through DPLA. 1200 partners in total. Diverse partners - 26% university libraries, but many of sorts - historical societies, government agencies, memory institutions.

11% of @dpla content comes from #museums = Proof that digital humanities is a great partner for museums. #dhlibchs

9 million hits to the DPLA API.

Minnesota Digital Library seem 55% increase in traffic as a consequence of being part of DPLA.

DPLA now focused on sustainability planning - Mellon grant to work through a plan -- exploring services for a fee: aggregation, metadata clean-up, content hosting, reuse of front-end features.

Pilot on IR integration coming soon.

$81,000 from the Whiting Foundation to research educational uses large scale digital collections http://dp.la/info/2014/06/19/whiting-announcement/

Plethora of ways DH is being seen as a way libraries can connect better with teaching.

Case study of teaching with Omeka.net [again, low barrier]. Led to more requests for embedded instruction.

Students struggled translating scholarly work ethos into a multimedia space such as Omeka. But, did over time develop understanding of what it meant to curate in a digital environment - learning also through peer review, requiring them to think through the problem of building an argument in a multi-model way.

Wish list (partial perspective) on kind of this we might engage with re DH and libraries.

ACRL Research Planning and Review Committee - CRL News, 1 June 2014 - DH a top trend - why? sense of clear benefit of library participation.

(this will be largely academic and USA library perspective)

Re the statement...

Key role: YES! -- in supporting humanities research in their research: hmmm...

Posner: humanities projects do not need supporters but collaborators

But how can you collaborate and facilitate. In or out?

.@trevormunoz pushing back against ACRL Research and Planning Review committee take on DH--digital humanities is not a service #dhlibchs

— Harriett Green (@greenharr) June 21, 2014
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

This one statement confused and divergent.

DH is not a service ... said this many times but where do we go from here?

We need to start talking about not (or at less about) how we are doing something and why we are doing something.

DH is often in libraries because libraries are good at the how parts... need to think more about the why parts, couch our work in something grounded and theorised.

Glen Worthey: library spirit fits with digging into humanities 'things' to see how they are 'made' ... librarians long history of working on the 'gears and cogs' of book trade, bibliography et cetera ... "What is all this traditional library work if not an engagement with how knowledge is 'made'? And what are we if not co-makers of that knowledge".

https://digitalhumanities.stanford.edu/literary-texts-and-library-digital-age-or-how-library-dh-made

How do we understand these divergent views? - thinking through historical perspective of librarianship and points of connection with humanities scholarship... More history and theory! .. but what about the digital? Well, toward better thinking about technology - Flanders "productive unease" as our purpose.

Library as Infrastructure - see Shannon Mattern, "Library as Infrastructure" Design Observer 9 June 2014 http://places.designobserver.com/feature/library-as-infrastructure/38488/

Idea comes out of David Weinberger - library as platform would give rise to messy/rich ... but not enough people here. Flat place where resources laid out, doesn't encourage us to look underneath, to question the structure.

Weinberger "A library ... would give rise to ..." - weak reading of technology.

What is better is library as infrastructure. A library that knows how it plays a role in learning and knowledge. Mattern - "the library need to know how to read itself as a social-technical-intellectual infrastructure"

Build out points of connection with (digital) humanist scholarship - more work that thinks through media, technology, culture, innovation - through idea not tasks.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

But what is the point of doing such media archaeology of documents in a library context?

Understanding, in a structured way, how and why users of our content are reusing, repurposing them in the way they are. Librarians can be part of the remaking of technologies in ways that reflect the values of librarians better - libraries about much more than trying to do Google search.

Librarians have plenty of tacit knowledge to contribute to fight against technological determinism - the technology does it, the DH does it...

John Russell

Graduate students as a target audience because their needs inexpensive and we could do what they wanted, faculty couldn't fulfil their needs.

Interdiscplinary aspect a huge piece of the puzzle -- library venue for Intro to DH -- library pitched as a neutral space, safe space - students confident they can play and fail in this environment without loosing face.

Students really wanted to know metadata library things - somewhat surprising.
