We got to compare and contrast the way different digital libraries format and scan their books. I’m disappointed that I won’t be in next week’s class when David Gwynn teaches it!*
*Digital Libraries alternates between Wednesdays and Thursdays. I’m in another class on Thursday nights.
These are from the class presentation that I missed since I was in another class!
(The class meets on Elluminate so I can watch the recording later)
I’m not 100% certain on this paper, but it kills multiple birds with one stone. :-)
This is a pretty interesting digital library. I had to post my evaluation on a Blackboard wiki, but I’m uploading it here too.
I realized half-way through that I could screencap the presentation and paste it into OneNote. Thus this pdf of notes is larger than usual!
These were the best readings yet. I left out information about media types since I already know about them.
I was in another class when this session was being recorded. Turns out that watching a recorded Elluminate session is bothersome/tiresome to do since the audio kept jumping everywhere. Nor could I participate in in the discussion even as I saw “new” things being added.
The best question of the class was, “What’s the difference between a digital library and a digital archives?” Click here to find out!
The keyword for this week is “born digital.” I keep seeing it pop up online.
And here’s the notes.
Chapters two and three (pdf)
My notes (pdf)
There is no chapter one because it was just an introduction.
