How To Make It Last [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-11-30 15:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

In surveying a few long-lasting digital publishing projects, we'll learn what characteristics have made them credible, sustainable, and fundable.  What decisions shaped the projects and helped ensure their longevity?  What kinds of institutional and grant support have fostered their continued growth?  What technological factors have been important in their durability?  Possible projects include the Brown Women Writer's Project, William Blake Archive, Rossetti Archive, Walt Whitman Archive, and the Index Thomisticus.

Problems in Digital Publishing: Metadata, Discovery, Linked Open Data [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-11-16 15:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

This workshop will help participants understand how to make digital resources easier to discover, reuse, and query.  Beginning with an overview of [linked] open data (semantic web, RDF), we'll study examples of how digital publishing/scholarship projects have made their data open for creative remixing and open research.

Problems in Digital Publishing: Defining and Managing Workflows [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-11-09 15:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

Managing a digital publishing project can be overwhelming; digital tools, while helpful, aren’t necessarily going to help if it’s not clear what the challenge is. Managing content, managing people, and managing timelines are all assisted by clear workflows, appropriate tools, and documentation. We’ll look at different needs and tools for coordinating digital publishing workflows, with specific attention to cross-platform integration (Google Drive, Box, etc) and the ease of adapting their affordances to common parts of the digital scholarship lifecycle.

Problems in Digital Publishing: Data Portability [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-11-02 14:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

Making information public with a piece of software is easy.  What's less straightforward is how to move that information from one platform to another without losing any of the affordances, metadata, or other attributes attached to it.  This session will provide an overview of some common data migration tasks and describe best practices for ensuring that your digital work stays portable and sustainable.

Using Online Tools to Build Undergraduate Research Skills [Munch & Mull]

Mon, 2017-10-30 16:00
Rubenstein Library 349 (Breedlove Conference Room)
West Campus

How can online tools improve students’ research skills? Adela Deanova, Duke doctoral candidate in Philosophy, took on that question. As a 2016-2017 Bass Instructional Fellow apprenticing with the Center for Instructional Technology (CIT), she focused on how to build archival research skills while innovating a traditional course. (Read more about Adela and the Bass OA project here: https://cit.duke.edu/blog/2016/12/innovative-teaching-undergraduate-philosophy-bass-online-apprentice-project/).

Adela used the course management tool Sakai (https://sakai.duke.edu/) and the new portfolio tool Pebble Pad (https://portfolio.duke.edu/) to create modular archival research activities for students in Professor Andrew Janiak's Gender and Philosophy course. Creating these smaller, scaffolded tasks and then providing students with a means to digitally publish their work (and instructors an easy way to evaluate that work) offers a novel approach for building students literacy in research methods and digital publishing. 

Join us for a brown-bag conversation with Adela about this approach to building undergraduate students’ research skills. Light refreshments will be served. This talk, co-sponsored by CIT, is part of the Munch & Mull Digital Scholarship series.

The Audiences of Digital Publishing: Outreach & Engagement [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-10-26 14:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

The flip side of assessment is outreach -- how do you involve users in your project in the first place?  How can you reach new audiences and keep your existing audiences actively involved with your work?  We'll learn about some of the ways successful projects connect with their users and promote their work to potential audiences.

Copyright and Fair Use in Digital Publishing [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-10-19 14:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

As we've seen in previous workshops, it's easier than ever for scholars to publish their work. The ease of sharing lets us speak to broad audiences and engage in public scholarship, but it also requires attention to legal issues that govern the use and reproduction of digital materials.  In this session, we will learn about those legal issues and think about how to license our own works for publication and reuse. Participants are encouraged to bring questions, problems, or examples for discussion.

Assessing Digital Scholarship [Digital Publishing Workshop]

Thu, 2017-10-12 14:30
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

Google Analytics is well-known as a tool for tracking use of web resources and measuring audience engagement in mainly business-oriented ways ("conversions," views by demographic or market, etc.).  It's also a useful tool for understanding how people are using your digital scholarship project.  We'll look at real-life examples of Google Analytics data and examine how to use it when talking about your project (in grant applications, for example).  

 

In this workshop, we will learn about the history and present state of impact metrics (from journal impact factors to near real-time, digital measurements of scholarly engagement).  We'll examine the ways that tools like Almetric and Impact Story track the sharing and citation of scholarship, what data they can and can't capture, and how to interpret the results they supply.
