Build An Organizational Digital Scholarship Repository Using Omeka, Sai Deng 2018 University of Central Florida

Build An Organizational Digital Scholarship Repository Using Omeka, Sai Deng

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

As a non-profit organization for librarians of color, Chinese American Librarians Association has members from all over the world. Materials that document the evolution of the organization and its scholarly activities pertain valuable information. There was an urgent need to establish an organizational digital scholarship repository to preserve these materials as well as to serve as a hub that provides valuable research information.

After careful comparison and selection, Omeka, a content management system for online digital resources, was chosen. Omeka is open source and thus free with a stable group of developers for a long time. While Omeka is an ...


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

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

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 ...

Facets: Drivers Of Discovery, Kimberly Willson-St. Clair 2018 Portland State University

Facets: Drivers Of Discovery, Kimberly Willson-St. Clair

Library Faculty Publications and Presentations

This presentation covers how facets can drive user discovery in Primo whether students have library instruction or not. At the Portland State University Library, the new Primo UI was launched August 2016. The design team decided which facets to turn on, their order, and which ones should be open or closed. The pedagogical perspective addressed the student user who does not receive formal library instruction face to face or online. This presentation covers the decision-making process, statistical analysis, and how enhancements informed subsequent changes to the facets.

Clemson University and the U.S. National Park Service (NPS) have collaborated since 2010 to develop the Open Parks Network, an open repository of over 230,000 digital objects and metadata records chronicling the diverse cultural and natural history of our nation’s parks, historic sites, and other protected areas. Initially funded by an Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grant that ended in 2014, this joint effort to deliver wider public access to the unique resources located in NPS libraries, museums, and archives across the U.S. and territories is an intriguing case study in the dynamics ...


Authority Control In Digital Commons: Why Bother?, Laura Edwards 2018 Eastern Kentucky University

Authority Control In Digital Commons: Why Bother?, Laura Edwards

EKU Faculty and Staff Scholarship

Authority control provided by Digital Commons is basic. Other than author names, Digital Commons does not provide much in the way of authority control for other fields, such as faculty advisor/mentor names or department names. Standardizing name fields has several benefits, not least of which is the increased precision of reports that institutions can create to highlight the impact of faculty mentorship activities as well as the scholarship output of departmental entities on campus. Institutions that want to ensure the consistency of names across submissions to their Digital Commons repository, especially for self-submitted submissions, must develop their own methods ...

New Perspectives: Reno Street Art In Virtual Reality, Amy J. Hunsaker, Laura Rocke

Digital Initiatives Symposium

UNR Libraries’ Digital Initiatives Unit and Digital Media Technology Department partnered with an art historian, local art organizations, and Reno street artists to create an online archive, exhibit, and virtual reality experience highlighting the explosion of urban street art in Reno. The Libraries assembled a team that photographed the art using traditional 2D digital cameras, and captured 360 VR footage of the art and of several artists creating interior and exterior murals. The team conducted on-camera interviews of prominent street artists in Reno; collected permission forms; generated metadata; preserved the images and created an archive using CatDV, the Libraries’ media ...


Inter-Departmental Collaboration On Electronic Theses And Dissertations: Redesigning Workflows To Enhance Access, Rachel Paul, Cedar C. Middleton 2018 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Inter-Departmental Collaboration On Electronic Theses And Dissertations: Redesigning Workflows To Enhance Access, Rachel Paul, Cedar C. Middleton

Digital Initiatives Symposium

In an effort to eliminate redundancies in thesis and dissertation cataloging at the University of Arkansas, a working group was devised to create a semi-automated workflow. This new, multi-departmental workflow eliminates redundancies, allowing us to provide better access to the intellectual endeavors of the scholars on our campus. This paper describes the experience of the collaboration within multiple library departments and departments across campus; acknowledges the importance of library and campus collaboration with examples of success and advice from the literature; and emphasizes clear and consistent communication, meeting user needs, and streamlined and innovative workflows.


Creating A Reproducible Metadata Transformation Pipeline Using Technology Best Practices, Cara Key, Mike Waugh 2018 Louisiana State University

Creating A Reproducible Metadata Transformation Pipeline Using Technology Best Practices, Cara Key, Mike Waugh

Digital Initiatives Symposium

Over the course of two years, a team of librarians and programmers from LSU Libraries migrated the 186 collections of the Louisiana Digital Library from OCLC's CONTENTdm platform over to the open-source Islandora platform.

Early in the process, the team understood the value of creating a reproducible metadata transformation pipeline, because there were so many unknowns at the beginning of the process along with the certainty that mistakes would be made. This presentation will describe how the team used innovative and collaborative tools, such as Trello, Ansible, Vagrant, VirtualBox, git and GitHub to accomplish the task.

Getting To Know Our Web Archive: A Pilot Project To Collaboratively Increase Access To Digital Cultural Heritage Materials In Wyoming, Amanda R. Lehman, Bryan Ricupero

Digital Initiatives Symposium

The University of Wyoming is the only four year higher education institution in the state, a unique position amongst colleges and universities in the United States. Given this unusual status it is especially important that the university libraries use their resources to identify and partner with communities around the state to build collections that preserve their cultural heritage. An Archive-It subscription was purchased in 2016, with an initial goal of capturing university related materials. In an effort to expand the scope and meaningfulness of the web archive, a project has been undertaken to use university and statewide relationships to build ...

Migratory Patterns In Irs: Contentdm, Digital Commons And Flying The Coop, Michele Gibney, Kristin Laughtin-Dunker, Elizabeth Chance

Digital Initiatives Symposium

What is the importance of institutional history and special collections in a digital environment? Should these pieces of history have their own digital platform or be merged with the institutional repository? What role do repositories play in the institutional environment? What impact do digital historical collections have on the stakeholder contingent as well as the global community? The speakers will discuss the rationale behind migrating collections from CONTENTdm to institutional repositories (all using bepress’s Digital Commons platform). Reasons range from subscription costs to file format concerns to increased search optimization. The migratory act will be covered in terms of ...
