Community Showcase and Reception

In addition to an informal reception to close out the first day at DPLAfest 2015, the Community Showcase is an interactive session featuring 90-second poster presentations from members of the DPLA community.

Posters and presentations include:

45 Million Pages, 150 Million Species Names, Science for the DPLA--The Biodiversity Heritage Library. The BHL is a "Vast library of life" that enriches the DPLA by helping the DPLA community learn more about our non-human neighbors on planet Earth. Poster by Martin Kalfatovic (Smithsonian Institution).

Rights & Reproductions: The Handbook for Cultural Institutions. Currently, there is no single reference for established rights and reproductions or permissions specialists or professionals new to the field. The forthcoming publication, Rights & Reproductions: The Handbook for Cultural Institutions, will be the first comprehensive resource to focus solely on the rights and reproductions field. With intellectual property laws and rights and reproductions methodologies ever-changing with the development of new technologies, this digital publication, produced using the Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative (OSCI) Toolkit platform, will be a living document that can be updated to stay current with trends and best practices. This poster session will introduce attendees to the upcoming publication by sampling the early preview chapters and demonstrating the functionality of the OSCI Toolkit. Poster by Anne Young (Indianapolis Museum of Art).

Community Repping to the Chinese Community in New Jersey. Judy Jeng, a DPLA Community Rep, will present a poster on her work with the Chinese community in New Jersey.

New MDL digitization and the MDL Immigrant Stories Site. This work brings together the oral histories and stories both new and existing from Minnesota's vibrant immigrant communities. Poster by Jason Roy (Minnesota Digital Library).

Up, Up, and Away: Rapidly Growing Digital Collections at IndyPL. As part of its 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, and with an eye to the city's bicentennial, the Indianapolis Public Library is rapidly expanding efforts to digitize and improve access to community history, memories, and collections. Meaghan Fukunaga, Indianapolis Public Library Digitization Manager, will highlight some of the ways in which the library is approaching this undertaking. 

History Harvest: Community-sourcing Cultural Heritage in the Classroom. The History Harvest is an open, digital archive of historical artifacts gathered from communities across the United States. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of History partners with institutions and individuals within highlighted communities to collect, preserve, and share their rich histories. Advanced undergraduates lead the History Harvest project and curate and digitize these artifacts and stories. We believe that our collective history is more diverse and multi-faceted than most people give credit for and that most of this history is not found in archives, historical societies, museums or libraries, but rather in the stories that ordinary people have to tell from their own experience and in the things - the objects and artifacts - that people keep and collect to tell the story of their lives. The History Harvest, then, is an invitation to local people to share their historical artifacts, and their stories, for inclusion in a unique digital archive of what we are calling the people’s history. Poster for Brandon Locke.

Sharing Data for Better Discovery and Access. The Internet Archive and DPLA were pleased to recently announce a joint collaborative program to enhance sharing of collections from the Internet Archive in DPLA. The Internet Archive will work with interested Libraries and content providers to help ensure their metadata meets DPLA’s standards and requirements. After their content is digitized, the metadata would then be ready for ingestion into the DPLA if the content provider has a current DPLA provider agreement. Presentation from Robert Miller (Internet Archive).

LGBT History in Indiana: Documenting and Sharing

Several cultural heritage institutions in Indiana have been working on documenting and sharing the heritage and history of the Indiana and Indianapolis LGBT community.  In 2014 the Indiana Historical Society announced its 3-phased collecting strategy, starting with the Indianapolis and Central Indiana LGBT Oral History Project.  These stories will become a piece of the Indiana Historical Society’s expanding collections.  Around the same time the Indiana Landmarks Foundation announced its LGBT Heritage program which identifies, researches, and marks physical locations significant to LGBT history within Indiana.  In 2010 The Chris Gonzalez Library & Archives, the brain child of life long Indiana resident and LGBT advocate Michael Bohr, partnered with IUPUI University Library and the Kinsey Institute to digitize and provide open access to early Indiana GLBT newsletters: http://kinseyinstitute.org/library/gonzalez.html.  This session will share how these projects came to fruition and next steps for continuing to preserve Indiana’s LGBT history.

Digital Humanities Showcase

Learn about the latest and greatest in the Digital Humanities showcase. Presentations include:

Jason M. Kelly, “The Open Scholarship Project"

The Open Scholarship Project (OSP) seeks to transform the process of humanistic knowledge production and distribution by building an open access editing and publishing system unlike any other currently available. OSP has integrated four features that make it unique in the digital publishing landscape. First, OSP is predicated on the principle of Diamond Open Access. Secondly, it allows authors to version their work as it develops from conference paper to article to book. Thirdly, OSP fuses open peer review and threaded conversation into each draft, crediting all contributors in all future versions. Fourthly, OSP uses the Mozilla Open Badges Framework, which allows groups -- professional organizations, publishers, or even small groups of specialists -- to give their imprimatur to an author’s work.

The HathiTrust Research Center: An Overview of Advanced Computational Services

The HathiTrust Research Center enables computational access for nonprofit and educational users to published works in the HathiTrust Digital Library. In this session staff from the HTRC will provide an overview of the HTRC current services and will showcase our Secure HathiTrust Analytics Research Commons (SHARC) software release. Presenters include Robert H. McDonald (Associate Dean for Library Technologies/Deputy Director Data to Insight Center,  Indiana University), Nicholae Cline (ScholarsCommons Librarian for the HathiTrust Research Center, Indiana University), Dirk Herr-Hoyman (HTRC Operations Manager, Indiana University)

HT+BW: An NEH Funded Initiative for text analysis of HathiTrust Digital Library (HTDL) with Bookworm

This session will discuss HT+BW, a project to integrate the HTDL corpus, processed at the Hathitrust Research Center (HTRC), with the Bookworm platform for text analysis, developed at the Cultural Observatory. Bookworm greatly extends the type of analysis that was popularized by the Google Ngrams Viewer, making it possible to “slice and dice” the data in an arbitrary corpus, in real time, using a greatly enhanced set of content-based and metadata-based features. The HT+BW will greatly increase the value of the HTRC because it will assist humanities scholars and students in their effort to delve deeper into the HathiTrust corpus and to explore more complex, multi-faceted research questions.Presented by Loretta Auvil (University of Illinois).

Can Metadata be Quantified? -- Analytics for Libraries

This presentation will summarize preliminary results of research into a quantitative analysis of metadata quality, using DPLA metadata as a test case. Data pre-processing, including converting metadata into a numeric representation of "completeness" and merging with Google Analytics data, will be discussed. Visualizations will be demonstrated, including representations of "usage" drawn from Google Analytics, comparison of metadata characteristics across hubs, and identification of unusual, "outlier" values. Finally, the presentation will outline next steps and initial work on analyzing and visualizing the content of metadata fields, applying natural language processing techniques, and evaluating that content's relationship to Google Analytics usage.

Open Educational Resources in K-12 Schools
The availability of high-quality, low-cost digital content in our schools is a priority for the President and a pillar of his ConnectED Initiative. Fostering the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in our nation’s classrooms can help meet this goal. Open Educational Resources have the potential to provide students and teachers access to a universe of high-quality, up-to-date content that can be tailored by educators to reflect new developments and current events on the fly.  OER can also reduce the cost of purchasing necessary educational resources, so that schools can redirect funds for other instructional needs.  We believe this approach can foster greater collaboration between cultural institutions and schools when digital collections of openly licensed resources are tapped for classroom use.  However, significant barriers remain to the efficient discovery, curation, delivery, use, and reuse of OER in classrooms that impede wide adoption and routine use of OER as an alternative to costly curriculum materials.  

The Office of Educational Technology is currently developing a plan for a national initiative to fulfill the President’s vision and is seeking the DPLA community's engagement on the best ways to address barriers preventing wide-spread adoption of OER. We hope this workshop draws a diverse group of attendees interested in discussing and sharing ideas for how we can work to increase the use of existing Open Educational Resources in America's K-12 classrooms.

Cold Storage: the Harvard Depository As a Slow Server Farm for Books, Papers, and Knowledge

Rarely glimpsed by library patrons, the Harvard Depository (HD) is a crucial piece of the university's knowledge-production infrastructure. Located in rural Southborough, Massachusetts, forty minutes from Cambridge by car, it's home to some ten million books, archival papers, films, and other media. Cold Storage is a documentary short produced by metaLAB to document HD and explore its instrumental and metaphorical roles in the university library. Responding to the 1956 film Tout la mémoire du monde, a short film made by legendary Alain Resnais, the documentary is also a kind of index to a media archive of HD's history and technical systems, and a product of a multi-year seminar on library innovation run by metaLAB in Harvard's Graduate School of Design.

From Object to Access: Digitization at the Indianapolis Museum of Art

Opening museum collections digitally to the public can be a very complex task. From rights research to digitization, processes need to be established to make the move to digital seamless. The IMA recently utilized a cross-departmental team to bring digitization, rights clearance, and technology together, to create the most complete and open online collection the museum has offered. This session will cover the workflows and process designed to make this digital transition as efficient as possible including the utilization of a Digital Asset Management System, Collection Management System and custom software to bring it all to the masses. IMA presenters include Tascha Horowitz (Manager of Photography), Kyle Jaebker (Director IMA Lab), Anne Young (Manager of Rights and Reproduction).

Research Libraries and Open Access

Open access has forced scholars, libraries, professional organizations, and publishers to reimagine the ecologies in which scholarship is produced. It has shifted our assumptions about the processes of scholarly production and distribution. It has forced us to rethink our economies and the incentives that drive them. This panel discussion will examine the research library's role in both guiding and adapting to this constantly evolving environment. It will explore the ways that research libraries function as a central node in sustaining the ecology of open access.

Discovering and Describing DPLA Collections
Many of the institutions providing metadata to the DPLA organize their holdings in collections. Some collection details supplied by the data provider, such as the title and description, are retained in the item records but not displayed. The Computational Collection Descriptions project, hosted by the School of Information at the University of Texas at Austin, is developing mechanisms that use item-level data to generate collection-level attributes such as subjects, dates, and locations. Enhanced collection-level metadata will enable the discovery of whole collections, support relevance assessment of items in the context of collections, help manage search results by grouping at the collection level, and provide greater visibility for results from institutions that have fewer matching objects. Creating collection-level views of the aggregated metadata will also support new approaches to the evaluation and enrichment of metadata at large scale.

Principles of Good Project Management in Large Digitization Projects

Project management is a critical discipline for digitization projects that enables high-quality preservation and accessibility of archives, while ensuring optimal use of time and resources. Digitization projects typically consist of millions of bits of metadata and files in complex formats, and require high accuracy levels. Good project management is necessary for the success of any project. However, when the project team is temporally, culturally, and geographically dispersed—as it often is for large digitization projects—project management, especially good communication between the stakeholders, is critical and essential.


In this panel session, four experts will share key principles of project management for large digitization projects. Jim Studnicki, Founder and President of Creekside Digital, will discuss the role of project management in providing the highest quality, standards-compliant digitization of cultural heritage materials. Patricia Lawton, Digital Projects Librarian for the Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA), will identify and describe key steps in the development of the Catholic Newspapers Program within the context of a highly collaborative and distributed organization. Jenny Johnson, Digital Scholarship Outreach Librarian, will provide insight into digitization project workflows based on in-house versus outsourcing digitization. Frederick Zarndt, Digitization and Archive Specialist for Digital Divide Data (DDD) and for the IFLA News Media Section and IFLA Committee on Standards, will share why clear communication, good planning, and detailed, unambiguous requirements are essential to the successful management of library digitization projects.

Promoting Progress: Overcoming Copyright Obstacles to Improve Access to Culture

Copyright is the "engine of free expression," but its restrictions pose unique difficulties for digital libraries, particularly when it comes to providing access to copyrighted works. This panel will explore ways that copyright exceptions, legal reform, and author action can improve access to our cultural heritage without upending the traditional copyright bargain.

Source Discovery Anyone Can Edit: Meeting Readers Where They Are…On Wikipedia

The route to discovery for most students and researchers inevitably involves a Google search and then a click through to Wikipedia. Wikipedia is where researchers congregate on the internet to begin their search, and to reach them, open cultural data and resource curators like DPLA and its affiliates need to be involved in the process that creates and curates Wikipedia.  We will highlight the growing number of projects and programs developed by the Wikipedia Library and larger Wikipedia community that make Wikipedia a complementary partner to the efforts of DPLA.  These projects have developed in cooperation with university libraries, archivists, cultural institutions, and organizations like DPLA, Europeana and OCLC.

The discussion will focus on helping cultural institutions decide how to best leverage Wikipedia using tools like: direct editing of Wikipedia to highlight and expose collections with editathons and image uploads, linking to finding aids on relevant articles, hosting Wikipedians-in-Residence, and integration with tools like WikipeDPLA.  We will also explore new opportunities for collaboration— such as our Wikipedia Visiting Scholars program and the Wikipedia Education program. Our desire is to bring more archivists and cultural heritage curators into our midst as subject experts, connecting the circle of research and dissemination between readers, Wikipedia, and knowledge institutions.

Best Practices for Dealing with Orphan Works

Over the last several years, libraries, archives and other memory institutions have recognized that copyright law poses a significant obstacle to digital preservation of and online access to large segments of their collections. This problem especially acute for archives and collections that contain orphan works—i.e., works for which it is difficult or impossible to find rights holders who might give permission for their use. The Statement of Best Practices in Fair Use of Collections Containing Orphan Works for Libraries, Archives, and Other Memory Institutions, released in December 2014 and endorsed by a number of libraries and archives, including DPLA and several DPLA hubs,  addresses how memory institutions can apply fair use to overcome these challenges. The Statement and supporting documentation is available online at http://cmsimpact.org/orphanworks

This session will give an introduction to the Statement of Best Practices in Fair Use of Collections Containing Orphan Works for Libraries, Archives, and Other Memory Institutions, followed by a short discussion of how to apply its recommendations about fair use to concrete examples of library digital collections.

TUT workshop with Europeana: Targeting Users Thematically – Europeana Channels
Speakers are: Jill Cousins, Executive Director, Europeana with skype or video contributions from Richard Ranft, British Library and Coordinator of Europeana Sounds, Marco Rendina, Coordinator of Europeana Fashion, Alastair Dunning, Product Owner of Europeana Newspapers and Europeana Research and David Haskiya, Chief Product Officer of Europeana.

Session Description: Of the many challenges for digital libraries such as DPLA and Europeana possibly the hardest is making the content you aggregate appeal to users. 

Partly because: Users don't fall into neat, defined, audience; Content is heterogeneous; No user is interested in everything; Curation is resource intensive; True multilinguality of search remains a pipe dream. A solution we are working on is thematic user channels. Providing thematic access to the content curated by experts:

 Europeana Fashion, Europeana Music, Europeana Art History; or access  by profession: Europeana Research; or by media: Europeana Newspapers.

Participants are invited to critique the approach and discuss if it has a resonance or application for DPLA.
