Adventures in determining a digitization lab’s capacity
Shannon Willis, Marcia McIntosh
University of North Texas, United States of America
Librarians in the Digital Projects Unit at the University of North Texas went through several methods of calculating their digitization lab’s capacity, eventually landing on an adapted version of the Points Process System developed by the University of Northwestern.
How does UX work make an impact?

1: Indiana University; 2: Texas A&M University; 3: Pepperdine University; 4: University of Notre Dame
How do digital libraries, and other cultural heritage institutions with digital collections, measure the impact of UX initiatives? We’ll share results from an extensive literature review and a selected list of success criteria for UX work in digital libraries and comparable collections in museums and archives.
"Examining Assumptions:" Lessons from Collaborating in the Classroom with Digital Tools
Roberto Vargas
Swarthmore College, United States of America
I explore the ways a collaboration with a Latin American Literature seminar was both successful and unsuccessful in providing a space to engage digital tools, how my initial assumed equation of “easy to use tool” = “higher engagement with technology” was misguided, and the mistakes and lessons learned from this assumption.
Revisiting Open Source for Managers
Benjamin Armintor
Columbia University Libraries, United States of America
This presentation offers brief observations on the trajectory of Open-Source as an organizational model of collaboration since the late 90s and on corresponding trends in IT workforce organization and higher-ed resourcing. It suggests a value proposition for contributing to such efforts without taking recourse to community as an end.
Ethical Digital Scholarship and Prison Labor?
Alexis Logsdon
University of Minnesota Libraries, United States of America
Researchers make use of prison labor to build digital collections and projects: prisoners digitize microfilm and government documents, index records for the Mormon church, and digitize yearbooks. I will share an overview of digitization work in prisons and pose a series of questions about the ethical implications for digital scholarship.
