Black and Pink Holiday Card Party

West Campus

This semester Rubenstein Librarians worked with Dr. Jennifer Ansley's Writing 101 class on Women's Prison Writing. Reading the poetry, essays, and other writings by incarcerated women and learning more about activism with incarcerated people inspired us to host this event. Black and Pink is an organization that supports incarcerated LGBTQ people. One of their outreach programs is their annual holiday card parties to send messages of hope, kindness, and connection to people in prison.

At the program we will be decorating postcards to send to incarcerated people. Supplies and postage stamps will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own—please note that we can only use colored pencils and rubber stamps to decorate cards (no crayon, marker, or stickers according to their guidelines). Cookies  and drinks will be provided, and you may bring a bag lunch. Drop in for a little while or stay the whole time! The event will be held in the Beckstett Classroom, 150 Rubenstein Library.

Open Source and the Mission of Libraries (The Edge Open Series)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Mon, 2016-12-05 17:00
Bostock 121 (Murthy Digital Studio)
West Campus

There’s a broad overlap between the mission(s) of research libraries and the ethos of the open source software movement. Shared values like openness, transparency, intellectual freedom, and access have animated countless library-based initiatives, just as they have sparked the development of many free software projects. In this week’s Munch & Mull, Jack Hill and Will Shaw lead a broad discussion of open source and the mission of libraries. We’ll examine the history and philosophies of the open source software movement, discuss open-source development in Duke Libraries, and explore how (and why) libraries may be uniquely positioned to advocate for the use of open source in research and infrastructure.

To understand some of the history and values of the open source movement, you may want to read the Wikipedia articles "Open-source movement" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_movement) and "Free software movement" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_software_movement).

Hidden Writing! Part Deux

Preservation Underground - Fri, 2016-12-02 17:24

Latin MS 221Conservation Services has been working closely with staff from our Digital Production Center this week to train in the operation of our new multispectral imaging equipment and learn about image processing. During the calibration and testing of the machine we took the opportunity to re-image the illuminated manuscript leaf which I posted on back in the summer. The palimpsest is so clearly legible in these new photos! We are very excited by the possibilities that this new imaging equipment opens for learning more about our collection materials.

To work with and make meaning of a set of 500 satirical images and 50 pieces of theatrical and panoramic writing, I've been working with qualitative data analysis software, in particular nVivo. This presentation charts my journey through the land of qualitative data analysis and data visualization, and will demonstrate how this figures into my dissertation project, "Art, Commerce, and Caricature: Satirical Images of Artistic Life in Paris, 1750-1850."
