Mr. Woods will present, Working with born-digital materials in the BitCurator Environment. He will provide an overview of how tools in the BitCurator environment can assist professionals working with born-digital materials, particularly those who are working on legacy fixed and removable media. The BitCurator Environment is a Ubuntu-derived Linux distribution geared specifically towards the needs of archivists, librarians, and other curators. It includes a suite of open source digital forensics and data analysis tools to help collecting institutions acquire, explore, and report on files found in legacy and modern file systems. Ongoing development of the environment is supported by members of the BitCurator Consortium (https://www.bitcuratorconsortium.org/). 

Kam Woods' presentation will be following by a question and answer session and a brief business meeting about the work of the DCIG.

Recording of the March 17, 2017, ACRL DCIG: Using ePADD to process and provide access to email archives

URL: https://youtu.be/fx5z1hFWVdw

ePADD is an open source and freely available software package that allows individuals and institutions to appraise, process, and make available for research email of potential historical or cultural value. The software primarily accomplishes this goal by incorporating techniques from computer science, including natural language processing.

In November 2015, Stanford Libraries and partners received grant funding through the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) for three years to further develop the program’s scalability, usability, and feature set.

In this session, Glynn Edwards (ePADD Project Director and Head of Technical Services in Special Collections, Stanford University), Peter Chan (ePADD Project Manager and Digital Archivist, Stanford University) and Josh Schneider (ePADD Community Manager and Assistant University Archivist, Stanford University) demo the latest release, answer questions about the software, and discuss opportunities to contribute to ePADD's development.

Presentation Information:

Update on VTArtWorks: Building a Communications Hub and Digital Repository for Community Cultural Development

Andi Ogier, Associate Director, Data Services, University Libraries, Virginia Tech

While many libraries have built a strong relationship with their local communities, it can be difficult for research data services units to articulate their value beyond the gates of the research institution.  However, a partnership between the University Libraries and School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech is working to leverage the expertise of a data services unit in support of the emerging interdisciplinary field of Community Cultural Development (CCD). Initially named ‘VTArtWorks’, the project team began working together in the fall of 2015 thanks to a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). From the fall of 2015 to the summer of 2016 the VTArtWorks team has performed original research with the eventual goal of informing development of an online communication platform for the field of CCD. As a field, CCD recognizes the inherent value of communication and documentation, but lacks the technical infrastructure and strong history of digital archival practices. The VTArtWorks team, led by a databrarian and a theater professor, works to integrate curation workflows developed to encourage documentation and reuse within a data repository into an emerging field comprised of scholars, artists, organizers and practitioners who seek to build cultural capacity to engage issues surrounding social and economic justice.
 
This presentation will:

  • Explore the research conducted by the VTArtWorks team on the field of Community Cultural Development;
  • Articulate the value of the partnership that drives the project and what each partner brings to the table;
  • And provide an update on the current state of the VTArtWorks project and the development of the associated digital platform.

Curating Research Data: How We Manage It Today and Why We Should Collaborate in the Future

Monday, February 27  |  2-3pm CST

Presenter: Lisa Johnston, University of Minnesota

As reproducibility and data sharing emerge as key issues for academic researchers, the data management services offered by the library must grow from consultation and guidance to hands-on data curation and service. For two years the University of Minnesota Libraries have offered a robust service involving multiple data curation specialists that curate data deposited into our Data Repository for the University of Minnesota (DRUM) and appropriate subject data repositories. Data curation steps, including quality assurance, file integrity checks, documentation review, metadata creation for discoverability, and file transformations into archival formats, are value-add services that enhance digital data for long-term preservation and reuse. This talk will explore the data curation workflows and staffing in place at our institution and also highlight procedures in place at disciplinary and institutional such as Dryad, ICPSR, Yale, and the U of New Mexico. These experiences are collected in a new book titled Curating Research Data: A Handbook of Current Practice, released as an open access ebook by the American College and Research Libraries in January 2017.
