Making Your Mobile Device An Art Expert: Using Qr Codes To Tell The Story Behind Artifacts In Your Library, Jessica Howard, Carolyn Sautter Dec 2013

Making Your Mobile Device An Art Expert: Using Qr Codes To Tell The Story Behind Artifacts In Your Library, Jessica Howard, Carolyn Sautter

Jessica Howard

Have you ever wondered about the stories behind the public art in your library? Every object has the potential to tell a story—the paintings, the sculpture, the furniture, and the building itself. At Musselman Library, Gettysburg College, we use QR codes as the technical means to satisfy the natural curiosity of our patrons. Historical information already available in our Special Collections and College Archives was repurposed for the mobile-friendly environment. The artiFACTS project proved to be simple, scalable, and a great opportunity for collaboration. This article will discuss how we implemented artiFACTS, including creating QR codes, marketing to campus ...

Foreword, Winston E. Langley

Winston E. Langley

Change is a fundamental feature of life and living; without it, few things would survive, and fewer, if any, would thrive. The New England Journal of Public Policy has undergone a change, having elected to assume an electronic form. Since coming into being in this form three months ago, the success it has realized with its earlier issues has been remarkable. It is as if it were being waited on. In the month of December 2012, for example, the journal was the second most popular publication series on ScholarWorks at the University of Massachusetts Boston, with a total of 2 ...

Creating Ebooks From Archival Material In A Digital Commons Space, Brendan Ryan

Brendan Ryan

The Digital Initiatives at Rhode Island College (RIC) began a project in the spring of 2013 to begin creating eBook files from content already collected as PDF files in the RIC Digital Commons. The process of investigating strategies and exploring file formats provided a background in digital publishing that should prove valuable in future endeavors. In addition, a new method for streamlining workflow was developed that will increase effectiveness. This article explores the process and explores the outcomes of the conversion process.


Whatever Happened To Art And Design?: Using Archival Practice To Manage The Impact Of Academic Restructuring On Institutional Repositories, Harrison W. Inefuku Dec 2013

Whatever Happened To Art And Design?: Using Archival Practice To Manage The Impact Of Academic Restructuring On Institutional Repositories, Harrison W. Inefuku

Digital Scholarship and Initiatives Publications

In the interest of providing access to and preserving scholarship produced by faculty, students and staff, many universities have developed and implemented institutional repositories. Repositories are often organized into communities that correspond to campus units, including departments, research centers and institutes, and administrative offices. Universities, however, frequently undergo academic restructuring, which can make repository organization out of sync with university organization. This article addresses the impact of academic restructuring on repositories and looks to practices from archival arrangement and description to create repository organizational structures and community descriptions flexible enough to reflect university organization, despite changes arising from academic restructuring.

Personal Papers And Mplp: Strategies And Techniques, Cheryl Oestreicher

Cheryl Oestreicher

In 2005, Mark A. Greene and Dennis Meissner published an article urging archivists to reassess processing strategies to focus less on detailed arrangement and description and more on minimal efforts to provide access to researchers. In 2008, the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History in Atlanta, Georgia, was awarded a grant from the Council of Library and Information Resources to process the personal papers of Andrew J. Young. The grant stipulated the implementation of Greene and Meissner’s “more product, less process” (MPLP) techniques. This article describes the analysis and strategies behind the decisions made to ...

The Importance Of Digitization In Teaching-Oriented University And College Libraries, Craighton T. Hippenhammer Dec 2013

The Importance Of Digitization In Teaching-Oriented University And College Libraries, Craighton T. Hippenhammer

Faculty Scholarship – Library Science

An increasing number of university and college libraries have started digitization programs and there are good reasons why they are doing so. First, we are in the middle of revolutionary change as to how ideas get published and distributed. Over 50 percent of scholarly publishing has gone digital and over 20 percent has gone open access. Governments worldwide are beginning to require tax-supported research be published in open access venues. Secondly, it is imperative that they increase their Archives’ digital presence. Preserving institutional histories is currently being lost because of the entirely digital way academics now communicate and many archives ...

The Footprint And The Stepping Foot: Archival Records, Evidence, And Time, Kimberly D. Anderson Dec 2013

The Footprint And The Stepping Foot: Archival Records, Evidence, And Time, Kimberly D. Anderson

Kimberly D. Anderson

This paper provides an analysis of the archival concepts of “record” and “evidence” as socio-cultural constructs arising out of a particular view of time. Archival records are usually characterized as having certain relationships to evidence in its temporal aspects—specifically, the requirement for a temporal disconnect between creation and use. This disconnect also necessitates a break between knowledge and the knower in which the record must be externalized and set aside from its creator in order to have “recordness”. This paper explores how Western concepts of time impact concepts of records and archival evidences and proposes an alternative framing. Since ...

This is followed by reviews of proper storage techniques for artifacts and descriptions where the institutions can acquire the ...


Native American Empowerment Through Digital Repatriation, Michelle L. Fitch Dec 2013

Native American Empowerment Through Digital Repatriation, Michelle L. Fitch

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Following the Enlightenment, Western adherence to positivist theory influenced practices of Western research and documentation. Prior to the introduction of positivism into Western scholarship, innovations in printing technology, literary advancements, and the development of capitalism encouraged the passing of copyright statutes by nation-states in fifteenth century Europe. The evolution of copyright and positivism in Europe influenced United States copyright and its protection of the author, as well as the practice of archiving and its role in interpreting history. Because Native American cultures practiced orality, they suffered the loss of their traditional knowledge and cultural expressions not protected by copyright. By ...
