Kicking & Streaming! Enhancing Digitally-Born Oral History Collections In Digital Commons, Autumn Johnson 2020 Georgia Southern University

Kicking & Streaming! Enhancing Digitally-Born Oral History Collections In Digital Commons, Autumn Johnson

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

Oral history collections pose unique challenges for archival institutions. Making these important histories available to researchers is often impeded by complex issues of access, privacy rights, and media obsolescence. These challenges are magnified when histories are digitally-born. Not only do they face the same issues as their analog counterparts, but digital materials have their own unique preservation and access issues with which archivists are still struggling to identify best practices. Digital Commons offers archivists a platform for sharing digitally-born oral histories that mitigate many of these complex issues. Not only does the platform allow for the consolidation of files from ...

Giving New Life To Old Memories: Migrating Central Florida Memory From Contentdm To Digital Commons, Lee Dotson 2020 University of Central Florida

Giving New Life To Old Memories: Migrating Central Florida Memory From Contentdm To Digital Commons, Lee Dotson

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

For 18 years, CONTENTdm was home to Central Florida Memory (CFM). CFM is a cooperative project started by three partner institutions in 2002 to provide an online platform and focal point for gathering, preserving, and disseminating the documents, artifacts, and stories of the history of Central Florida. As the project grew to include content from nine partners, UCF remained the primary technology support and host institution for Central Florida Memory. Recent server consolidations and lack of support for locally hosted CONTENTdm instances underscored the urgent need to migrate this valued cultural heritage content to another platform. In the Fall of ...

Mining The Minutia: Leveraging Adobe Acrobat’S Comparison Tools For Cv Updates, Jennifer Gerrald, Jeffrey M. Mortimore 2020 Georgia Southern University

Mining The Minutia: Leveraging Adobe Acrobat’S Comparison Tools For Cv Updates, Jennifer Gerrald, Jeffrey M. Mortimore

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

As every profile administrator knows, CVs are amorphous documents. Updates can occur anywhere at any time as researchers’ statuses, institutional roles, and research agendas evolve. Sections and entries can appear and disappear fluidly over the life of a CV, and even details within a single entry can change over time. For the profile administrator, catching these updates efficiently and effectively can be a real challenge. This presentation details one university’s approach to using Adobe Acrobat’s document comparison tools to identify, track, and process updates that improves significantly on manual review techniques. Presenters provide a detailed overview of this ...

Drive Traffic, Increase Links, Michele Gibney, Nicole Grady

Digital Commons Southeastern User Group 2020

One of the best ways to drive traffic to an institutional repository site is by adding links to it from other, established sites. This could be your institutional website – adding links from a departmental page to the department’s scholarly work. Or from your social media platforms to a relevant article corresponding with a topical news event. Another option is Wikipedia. Have you considered leveraging Wikipedia’s astronomical base of users for your own ends? With an average of 200 million+ page views a day, Wikipedia is an excellent resource to drive traffic to your IR.

But HOW can you ...

From Protecting To Performing Privacy, Garfield Benjamin 2020 Solent University

From Protecting To Performing Privacy, Garfield Benjamin

The Journal of Sociotechnical Critique

Privacy is increasingly important in an age of facial recognition technologies, mass data collection, and algorithmic decision-making. Yet it persists as a contested term, a behavioural paradox, and often fails users in practice. This article critiques current methods of thinking privacy in protectionist terms, building on Deleuze's conception of the society of control, through its problematic relation to freedom, property and power. Instead, a new mode of understanding privacy in terms of performativity is provided, drawing on Butler and Sedgwick as well as Cohen and Nissenbaum. This new form of privacy is based on identity, consent and collective action ...

Campus Conversations On Scholarly Communications: May 2020 Report, Paige Mann, Jennifer Beamer, Sonia Chaidez, Darren Hall, Amanda Makula, Lev Rickards

Working Papers & Reports

Campus Conversations on Scholarly Communications was created as a mini-grant program to foster institutional dialogue. Funded by the Statewide California Electronic Library Consortium (SCELC) Project Initiatives Fund (SPIF) and managed by the Scholarly Communications Committee, grants of up to $800 were used by member and affiliate libraries to engage diverse constituents on topics about licensing contracts, open access, or other scholarly communication topics. This dialogue is needed to address complex issues such as price increases, library budgets, market dominance, social justice, accessibility, sustainability, and relevance. Grant recipients share their work and reflections, inevitably impacted by COVID-19, in this report.

Whether you’re teaching online or face-to-face, UCF Libraries provide access to a variety of materials that can support your courses — from journal articles, streaming videos, e-books, and more.

In this session, UCF Librarians Sara Duff, Rich Gause, and Sarah Norris will share how to navigate the plethora of resources available to support teaching and learning with a particular emphasis on resources that can be used during remote teaching during emergency circumstances. How to access these materials and ensure they’re accessible by students, as ...


Corporate Archives In Silicon Valley: Building And Surviving Amid Constant Change, Paula Jabloner, Anna Mancini 2020 Computer History Museum

Corporate Archives In Silicon Valley: Building And Surviving Amid Constant Change, Paula Jabloner, Anna Mancini

Journal of Western Archives

An historical understanding of the phenomenon that is Silicon Valley requires the collection and preservation of original records. With the rapid pace of change in the technology industry, how can archivists and their institutions preserve this corporate history? Two archivists address how they were able to found an archives at Cisco Systems and maintain another at Hewlett-Packard. Two common elements emerged: 1) the formation of a licensed limited company (LLC) as the legal structure for the archival repository, and 2) the use of outsourcing to staff both repositories. Outsourcing via a non-profit, in this case the Computer History Museum, or ...
