An Evolving Portal: Planning for the future of the Biodiversity Heritage Library
Marissa Kings(1), Pamela McClanahan(2)
1: Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County; 2: Smithsonian Libraries
Two National Digital Stewardship Residents describe their projects with the Biodiversity Heritage Library, a consortium of natural history and botanical libraries committed to open access to biodiversity literature. Through conducting user studies and case studies, they are compiling best practices and recommendations for the next version of the BHL platform.
An Experiment in Design Methods for DH Projects
Katie Rawson(1), Trevor Trevor Muñoz(2)
1: Emory University, United States of America; 2: University of Maryland, United States of America
Humanities researchers are trained to develop a question and pursue it. Designers have a different process, committed to generative work. We decided to borrow from design methods for Curating Menus, developing a design brief, prototyping, and evaluating. We will present our process and results of our data-processing design experiment.
Unlocking maps for discovery and other purposes
Deborah Holmes-Wong, Yao-Yi Chiang
University of Southern California, United States of America
The USC Libraries and Spatial Sciences Institute are using Strabo software to "transcribe" text from 25 digital maps. They are evaluating the effectiveness of the software by comparing it to human transcription and OCRing of text and adding the text to metadata records for each of the maps.
Audiovisual Metadata Platform (AMP) tool for large-scale metadata generation
Amy Rudersdorf(1), Juliet Hardesty(2)
1: AVPreserve, United States of America; 2: Indiana University, United States of America
Indiana University, UT Austin, and AVPreserve were recently awarded a planning grant—called “Audiovisual Metadata Platform” (AMP)—to investigate automated metadata generation of audiovisual materials. This snapshot will report the outcomes of the in-person meeting of archivists and technical experts who will provide input on AMP’s technical design.
UX for Service Design: Bridging digital and physical services.
Ekatarina {Eka} Grguric
McGill University Library, Canada
User centered service design employs UX methodologies to develop both digital and physical services and can provide a useful framework for libraries. This talk will introduce participants to user centered service design and focus on how it can support the design of digital tools within a larger library ecosystem.
