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.
The 16th Tamil Internet Conference was held at UTSC in late August, and two DSU personnel gave presentations on Digital Scholarship Tools and Techniques and Towards Building Ontologies for Linked Open Data in the Tamil Context (presentation in Tamil). Learn more by accessing the slides via these links in Tspace.
We are always excited to see the students return to campus for the start of fall term. This fall, the DSU is involved in several pedagogical intiatives in the classroom. We're proud to support the Nearby Studies initative through Chris Berkowitz by maintaining a custom course website, through which students submit Oral Histories to a growing corpus of material covering the lives of locals as well as write and comment in a cross-disciplinary space.
