New year, new semester

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.

Questions to guide Project Development in Digital Scholarship

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!


Introducing Early Modern Songscapes

We are proud to announce that beginning Fall 2018, partners at the University of Maryland, the University of South Carolina and the University of Toronto Scarborough will begin work on a prototype for the Early Modern Songscapes platform. The project is hosted at UTSC Library’s Digital Scholarship Unit and represents a development partnership between the DSU and the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities.

School's back in session!

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.
