Presentations
 
They Live!: Fanzines and Digital Access
Tom Keegan, Matt Butler, Mark Anderson
The University of Iowa, United States of America
 
Staff from the University of Iowa Libraries’ Digital Scholarship & Publishing Studio will describe their role in helping to bring fanzines from the James L. Rusty Hevelin Collection to the public. The talk will examine issues of copyright, digital access, crowdsourced transcription, fan history, and early-to-mid twentieth century science fiction.
 
 
Bridging the Gap: Building a Newspaper Archive for Now and the Future
Nabeela Jaffer, Chris Powell
University of Michigan Library Information Technology, United States of America
 
To launch our student newspaper archive, we combined existing DLXS infrastructure and HathiTrust METS with a standards-based newspaper schema and tools widely used in the community -- Blacklight, Solr, and IIIF -- into an application called fishrappr. We will touch on user-centered design, usability testing, experience using Agile methodology, and lessons learned.
 
 
Tech and Texts: Integrating Theory and Practice
Justin Joque, Alix Keener
University of Michigan, United States of America
 
This presentation will outline our approach to combining hands-on workshops with theoretical readings. We will share our lessons learned and plans for the next iteration (on text analysis). This session will also include time for conversation and for attendees to share their approaches to teaching both theory and praxis.
