Housekeeping stuff

  • Don’t know where to be? Check the Schedule tab: lehigh2013.thatcamp.org/schedule/

  • We will meet back in Linderman 200 for lunch. You can leave your stuff in the classrooms because we will lock them during lunch. However, there are power strips set up in Linderman 200 if your device needs a quick charge during lunch.

Institutional Anniversaries: Strategies for Archivists and Librarians

I’d like to propose a talk session to exchange ideas, opinions, and share experiences with the archivists and librarians (of course others are welcome!) who have been involved or asked or expected to be involved with their institutional anniversary celebrations.

Every institution wants to tell its story with a “timeline”, oral histories, stories&memories, multimedia presentations, exhibitions, online exhibitions, coffee-table books, etc. and they all need photographs, publications, files, facts and legends, and other “cool stuff”. Who do they call? Archivists and librarians… When do they call? When they need something “yesterday”!

Wouldn’t it be nice to be prepared or to be invited right in the planning stage? Well, as we know, things are not always perfect in the library world. So, please come to share or takeaway.

Does it count?

Digital Scholarship is often collaborative and the final product is inherently different than a thesis, dissertation, journal, or book. How should digital scholarship be evaluated? Is it only the content or does the interface and user experience need to be evaluated as well? Who are the peer viewers? How should credit be shared or “counted” if you are a student, faculty member, librarian or technologist? And of course the larger question- does Digital Scholarship count, full stop?

[Make] Sonic Boom: Audio Texts with Audacity and SoundCloud

I’d like to propose a session centered on collecting, editing, and sharing sound. Attendees can take an individual approach or a collective approach to the session: Bring a germ of an idea for that aural piece you’ve always wanted to make, or gather sounds from your trip to THATCamp and at THATCamp itself, and we’ll create a collective audio text about our little unconference. I’ll start it off with a quick-and-dirty how to, then we’ll make stuff. Here’s the nutshell version:
1. Gathering Creative Commons sounds (and how to pwn YouTube when you have to)
2. Editing and exporting in Audacity
3. Sharing and tagging audio files on SoundCloud (and how to make use of their interactivity feature)
wavform
So, if you’re interested in this session, think about your audio text or gather some sounds on your way to Lehigh and Friday at THATCamp, and we’ll mix/mash/layer/subvert like there’s no tomorrow.

I’ll need a pot of coffee,12 jammy dodgers, and a fez…

Scholarly works like masters theses and dissertations are already preserved in print and electronically through services like ProQuest. But what should happen when the scholarly work is a digital project? How should that content be preserved? Who is responsible for the preservation of digital work once the scholar leaves the institution? For example, if a graduate student creates a digital project instead of a dissertation, who preserves that work and how? Who should pay for perpetual storage? What about academic blogs? How should they be captured and preserved? In this session participants will thrash out some of the preservation issues unique to digital works, especially those produced by students. Hopefully there will be no Silence during this session. As always, fezes are optional.
