DVS Workshop: Splunk for Research Data

Library News - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 14:00
Splunk is a data collection and analysis tool specializing in machine-generated data. Unlike traditional databases, Splunk does not require a "schema" or any kind of up-front description of the data; you simply point it at a text stream, or text file, and it ingests and indexes it automatically. It is particularly effective if your data-type may change in the future; if you need to merge several streams of data with different formats; or if the streams are coming in at different frequencies.

Photo Conservation Workshop: Day 4

Preservation Underground - Mon, 10/20/2014 - 11:24
Working with a variety of historic and modern heat set tissues.Working with a variety of historic and modern heat set tissues.

Last day of class and we are knee deep in attaching and removing various heat set tissues. We removed them mechanically with a variety of implements, and attempted to remove them chemically with varying success. I have a feeling some of these were successful only because they haven’t been sitting in an attic or outbuilding for 50 years. Maybe some artificial aging of the samples is in order.

Thanks to the Nasher Museum for lending us their heat set press. We wouldn’t have been able to do any of the last day without it.
