For those of you who are interested but could not attend yesterday, Nathan Humpal and Franky Abbott gave a “Building Digital Editions” workshop about basic vocabulary, project planning, and possibilities for creating digital scholarly editions. Resources from their presentation include video and their presentation outline with resources and examples. If you are interested in thinking through or getting started with a digital editions project, don’t hesitate to contact the ADHC to set up a consultation. Thanks Nathan and Franky!
Understanding how databases function and why they are important is key to doing much of the project work we do in the ADHC. Steven Turner of Web Services gave an intro workshop this week: “Using Relational Databases for Digital Research.” He covered some basics about what relational databases are, how they work, and why they are important for organizing data and building web-based projects. Here are resources from the workshop: video, slides, and handout of useful resources. Thanks, Steve!
Claire Lewis Evans, Editor for Digital and Electronic Publishing at The University of Alabama Press, gave a great workshop on intellectual property last week. She has made available many resources from her presentation: video (in Tegrity), slides, and two documents: Campus Copyright Rights and Responsibilities: A Basic Guide to Policy Considerations and The Association of American University Presses Permission FAQs. Thanks so much to Claire for giving us a great overview of the issues at stake within universities.
