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.
We are very excited to see the initial release of the Move to Islandora Kit tool (v0.9.0). Our very own developer Marcus Barnes along with Mark Jordan from Simon Fraser University are the current maintainers for this module.
The unit is proud to announce that we have an article published in the most recent issue of Code4lib (37). Our Article is titled Annotation-based enrichment of Digital Objects using open-source frameworks and describes the technical details of the Unit's work on the Web Annotation Utility Module in more detail.
