A Hybrid Approach to Digital Humanities Scholarship
The Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC) is creating an online research environment built on the Islandora framework and incorporating a suite of analysis, editing and visualization tools meant to foster collaboration in the study of Canadian culture. This snapshot will bring forward some of the challenges and solutions associated with this project, such as the difficulties of transforming a repository into a Virtual Research Environment and establishing a linked open data management workflow. The discussion of these issues and solutions will be framed in the context of sustainability and preservation challenges faced by projects such as CWRC.

Exploring 3D Scanning for the Creation of Digital Cultural Heritage Collections
IUPUI University Library has been digitizing and providing access to community and cultural heritage collections since 2006. Varying formats include: audio, video, photographs, slides, negatives, and text (bound, loose). The library provides access to these collections using CONTENTdm. As 3D technologies become increasingly popular in libraries and museums, IUPUI University Library is exploring the workflows and processes as they relate to 3D artifacts. The library is collaborating with Online Resources Inc., a company that specializes in 3D technology to explore new ways to deliver content to a digital audience.

Presenters: Jennifer Johnson (Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis), JD Schaumberg (Online Resources, Inc.), Anna Proctor (Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis)

Word Lab: Laboratories, Textual Data, and Communities of Practice
This snapshot will discuss the University of Pennsylvania Libraries' Word Lab. Word Lab is a computational text analysis research group that discusses group members' projects, develops skills, studies journal articles and projects, and hosts conversations with other text analysis scholars. Many of the visiting researchers are also part of things called labs -- Stanford Literary Lab, Chicago Text Lab, NULab. In this presentation, I will explore the concept of a text analysis lab, what its implications are, and how our example—in a library—functions to foster experimentation, digital research infrastructure, and research outcomes.

Presenter: Katie Rawson (University of Pennsylvania)

A Tale of Two Digital Projects: Open Source Tools for Awesome User Engagement
What do public media and Flickr have in common with VCU Libraries? Both provided the means for VCU to build upon open source tools and create new ways for users to engage with our digital collections. This snapshot will discuss the use of NPR's Quotable tool in partnership with the Richmond community featured in an oral history project, and will also showcase how the CONTENTdm to Flickr uploader tool built by VCU's web team was used to further user engagement with a unique digital atlas project.

Decentralized Music Document Image Searching with Optical Music Recognition and the International Image Interoperability Framework
While music libraries around the world are digitizing millions of musical scores, there are currently very few efforts underway at extracting the musical content from these page images and making the music notation available for large-scale search and analysis. With the International Image Interoperability Framework we are performing large-scale optical music recognition on remotely-hosted musical sources, storing the extracted notation locally and indexing them for search, while the original images are held and hosted by a remote institution. Through this we are creating a decentralized common interface for music score searching and analysis.

We Are CollectionSpace
This will be an introduction to CollectionSpace, an open-source collections management platform that is designed by a community of professionals just like you. We are building a community and a new solution for collections-holding institutions that is efficient, effective, customizable, intuitive, and affordable. CollectionSpace began as a collaboration amongst three universities, five museums, and a series of community design workshops where we brought together colleagues working with heterogeneous collections and engaged in a dynamic conversation about how together we might develop a solution that focuses on what we share in common as our core mission.
