Forum Opening Plenary
Please join us for the opening plenary for the 2019 DLF Forum.

 
Please join us for the opening plenary for the 2019 DLF Forum. After brief welcome and logistical remarks, we will enjoy a keynote talk by Dr. Marisa Duarte, entitled "Beautiful Data: Justice, Code, and Architectures of the Sublime."
If library and information science has an aesthetic it might manifest in the precision and orderliness of clean, appropriately labeled data. The more seamless our systems are, the less likely the user is to need us at every turn. She will have the freedom to effectively navigate the systems we build as she searches for the documents that, we hope, will relieve cognitive dissonance, satisfy a need to know, and inspire an unencumbered intellectual drive. Yet social changes in the US relating to race and surveillance, algorithmic discrimination, loss of privacy, and hate speech online is showing us that beautiful data is perhaps more of a mirage than a reality. Understanding the relationship between data and justice also helps us understand the role of digital libraries as institutions for change, and teaches us about the radical serenity of librarianship.

Unconference Session: The Next 25 Years of DLF
Joanne Kossuth
CLIR

Ever experienced an unconference? Now is your opportunity to help us pilot an unconference session!
Why would you want to join us?
An un-conference is any event where the agenda is set by those who attend. So, participants select topics of their own interest and engage other likeminded colleagues in an “on the fly” session.
The informality allows for the following lightweight rules:
Rule #1: Whoever shows up are the right people
Rule #2: Whatever happens is fine
Rule #3: Whenever it starts is the right time
Rule #4: It is over when it’s over
Attendees decide on their roles e.g. facilitator, scribe or nomads.
Curious?
See you there.

Presentations
Session Chair: Dorothy Berry (Harvard University)
Session Chair: Jennifer Matthews (Rowan University)
 
Digitizing Collections: Case Study
Lee Boulie
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, United States of America
 
This session will discuss the workflows, staffing, and infrastructure of two digitization projects: Hatch Show Print Letterpress Posters, and 1/4" Reel to Reel audio tapes.
 
 
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?
Jaci Wilkinson(1), Elizabeth German(2), Anna Speth(3), Abigail Shelton(4)
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.

A Herculean Task: Assessing digital content processes before a migration
Hannah Stitzlein, James Van Mil, Sidney Gao
University of Cincinnati, United States of America
 
With an impending migration from DSpace and Luna to a Samvera application and personnel changes and workflows at the University of Cincinnati, a reevaluation of the digital content team strategies provided an opportunity for assessment and appraisal of assumed processes, and identified several areas that would benefit from an overhaul.
 
 
Mass Assessment: Evaluating the outputs of crowdsourced and computer-assisted metadata
Nathaniel Deines, Melissa Gill
J. Paul Getty Trust, United States of America
 
New processes for generating metadata at scale using computer automation and crowdsourcing techniques necessitate new approaches to assessment and evaluation. How can project teams judge the quality of huge amounts of machine and/or crowd-generated metadata and how can user interface design help contextualize the quality of the metadata?

Presenters will share how they leveraged a faculty member’s openly licensed curriculum on computational foundations and taught introductory Python skills using live-coding instruction via JupyterHub and the Open edX platform.
 
 
Do we really need to build an app for that?
Paul Clough
University of Miami Libraries, United States of America
 
Software development can be a difficult and time-consuming process. Can we leverage existing tools and techniques to solve our problems and avoid creating new technical debt? At the University of Miami Libraries, we've successfully completed several projects using workflows that incorporate command line tools, rather than writing new software.
 
 
Reporting from the Archives: Python + Google Sheets API = Better Data, Faster Migration
Kevin Schlottmann, David Hodges
Columbia University Libraries
 
A large-scale, multi-phase migration of Columbia’s archives into ArchivesSpace was the occasion to brainstorm on flexible, adaptive data analysis and reporting solutions—to think beyond the CSV. Reusable tools built in Python using the Google Sheets API enabled creation of ad hoc, shared reporting interfaces to keep the project on track.

DigiPres Open Plenary: Digital Preservation Opening Plenary
Please join us for our opening plenary. A brief introduction to the event will be followed by updates to NDSA’s Strategic Plans and then the 2019 Innovation Awards. 

We will kick off the conference with a keynote from Alison Langmead entitled, "Sustainability Is Not Preservation."

The ongoing sustainability of digital projects is of critical concern to both project creators and stewards alike, and while much of the conversation in and around digital sustainability practices takes place in arenas adjacent to, or connected with, digital preservation, it is increasingly important to be purposeful about identifying the appropriate use cases for each of these approaches. In this talk, Alison Langmead will discuss her experiences co-creating and working with the Socio-Technical Sustainability Roadmap (STSR). Having now presented a two-day version of this sustainability workshop with over 100 people in six locations across the United States, the STSR team has become even firmer in their conviction that, for sustainability practices to be successful, project leaders must keep the changing, socially-contingent nature of both their project and their working environment(s) consistently in mind as they initiate, maintain, and support their own work. We feel that this approach constitutes a break from traditional preservation practices and standards that assume, and in some cases require, unchanging fixity from preserved digital products for an indefinite period into the future. Sustainability planning, by contrast, flourishes best when the fluid, changing nature of contemporary digital practices and products are accepted, and the possibility of a project retirement date is assumed. This rupture can mean that, for users to take up digital preservation practices, they must significantly modify workflows and (even) goals, but it can also mean that these users do not take up preservation practices at all, finding them impractical for their purposes.

#r2a: Discovery and Reuse
Presentations
Session Chair: Suzanne Chase (Georgetown University)
 
Socializing Context in Research Data Reuse
Elizabeth Yakel(1), Ixchel Faniel(2)
1: University of Michigan School of Information; 2: OCLC
 
Preservation is social and disciplines approach data reuse with different norms for evidence. This affects contextual information surrounding data. We discuss data reuse in the archaeological, zoological, and quantitative social science communities and focus on what contextual information is needed and why they are sought in these disciplines.
 
 
Getting granular: how digital preservation deposit drives discovery and delivery
Teresa Soleau
J. Paul Getty Trust, United States of America
 
Getty Digital is collaborating with the GRI on a IIIF-based project re-envisioning the way digitized archives are accessed, resulting in some mental gymnastics to create structure in the preservation system that is semantically sound, standards-based, and can be used as a source for granular exploration of the GRI’s rich archives.
 
 
Sharing to preserve: digital preservation combatting threats to cultural heritage in Jordan
Jessica Holland
ACOR, Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan
 
Irreversible deterioration of at-risk physical archival sources depicting cultural heritage sites - some since destroyed - faces a wealth of material within the Arab region. In response, an American research center in Jordan created an open-access archive sharing digitized images for free; effectively mobilising a post-custodial approach as a digital preservation strategy.
