Tanis Franco, UTSC Library's Archivist presented last week at the annual TRY conference on our recent repository tuneup. One of our main goals was to do an updated assessment of our repository metadata and come up with next steps to re-organize and clean up our data. Here's the poster from the conference:
The University of Toronto Scarborough Library's Digital Scholarship Unit is hosting a Lunch and Learn event on February 23rd from 1:00-3:00pm online and from 12:00-3:00pm in-person at the University of Toronto Scarborough Library.
It's the new year which means we're getting our systems ready for the new semester! This semester, we will be working with Professor Anne Milne again in ENGD43 to support the annotation of William Hogarth's series of six pictures, Marriage a la Mode. Annotations are done using Islandora Web Annotations, a utility module developed by the DSU that lets you add text and other media to images, video, and audio content.
The DSU is very proud to announce that our developer Nat has been made a committer for the Islandora CLAW project. Here is the original announcement:
As part of the library's commitment to this year's JHI-UTSC Digital Scholarhip Fellow (Andrea Charise) Angela Hamilton and Kirsta Stapelfeldt produced a set of guiding questions, now generalized as Questions to guide Project Development in Digital Scholarship. Hopefully this may be of use to others new to Digital Humanities work!
The Digital Scholarship Unit is happy to promote the University of Toronto's campaign for Cyber Security Month.
