Thanatourism To Dark Tourism: The Transition Of The Religious Sacred To Secular Sacred, Kelsey Reed 2018 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College

Thanatourism To Dark Tourism: The Transition Of The Religious Sacred To Secular Sacred, Kelsey Reed

Museum Studies Theses

The study of tourism shows a trend in the growing popularity of visiting sites associated with death, called Dark Tourism. While the term Dark Tourism is a modern construct, the practice of visiting sites associated with death is not. At the same time these sites of Dark Tourism (like Auschwitz) hold a place of importance in modern culture to multiple groups, placing them on a level of sacredness. Dark Tourism comes from the practice of Thanatourim (Death Tourism) and transitioned over time to follow the guideline of Dark Tourism. The connection to the aspect of the sacred can also be ...

Michele Gibney

What is the importance of institutional history and special collections in a digital environment?

If We Build It, They Will Come: Improving Cala’S Institutional Repository, Sai Deng 2018 University of Central Florida

If We Build It, They Will Come: Improving Cala’S Institutional Repository, Sai Deng

Sai Deng

The Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA)’s Academic Resources & Repository System (CALASYS) is an important initiative to curate its members’ research works, the organizational archival materials, and other cultural resources. CALASYS uses Omeka, an open source web-publishing platform, to store, link, display, and exhibit its collections. During its development, several aspects of the platform have been significantly improved due to the effort of the CALASYS Group and the CALA members.

To meet the emerging needs for improving data entry, description and access, the CALASYS group has explored and implemented multiple plugins. Among those implemented are Library of Congress (LC) Suggest, CSV Import, and Zotero Import. LC Suggest facilitates the cataloging process by offering auto-completion of subjects; it is linked to various authorities and is synchronous to updates thus helps improve the quality and consistency of metadata. CSV Import and Zotero Import both are instances of batch upload. This poster will demonstrate the improvements brought by plugins as well as the pros and cons of the selected plugins.

Meanwhile, the CALASYS group has been diligently building its collections by reaching out to the CALA members, chapters, committees and task forces. They have also been proactively promoting the platform among the CALA members via mailing lists and social media ...
