    Open Folklore: A Folklore Studies Communications Project of the American Folklore Society and the IUB Libraries

    The American Folklore Society (AFS) and the Indiana University Bloomington Libraries are creating a prototype of a new scholarly resource called Open Folklore. The vision for this open-access online portal for folklore studies is to make a greater number and variety of useful resources, both published and unpublished, available for the field of folklore studies and the communities with which folklore scholars partner. In its full form, we intend for Open Folklore to be a multi-faceted project that combines digitization and digital preservation of data, publications, educational materials, and scholarship in folklore; promotes open access to these materials; and provides an online search tool to enhance discoverability of relevant, reliable resources for folklore studies. In its initial phase, the partners will construct a prototype to gather feedback from the folklore community to shape its future growth and development.

    For more information, go to: www.openfolklore.org

    Open Folklore is supported by the American Folklore Society, the IU Libraries, and the IU Digital Library Program, a collaborative effort of the IU Libraries and University Information Technology Services.

    First Digital Library Brown Bag Presentation
    Greetings! Please join us this coming Wednesday, September 1, 2010 for the first digital library brown bag presentation of the Fall 2010 series by Jim Halliday and Sherri Michaels. The presentation will be held at the Herman B Wells Library, room E174, from 12:00-1:00.

    Dissertations in IUScholarWorks
    Jim Halliday and Sherri Michaels
    Digital Library Program / IUScholarWorks

    IUScholarWorks is a set of services whose stated goal is to make the work of IU scholars freely available. One of our recent efforts towards this goal has been to ingest all IUB student dissertations into the repository and make them freely available.

    Our talk will focus on the recent efforts of the IUScholarWorks team to do this. There were several challenges that the team faced in making this possible. These included issues of copyright, locating authors to gain permission, the challenge of converting the metadata into an appropriate format, and creating a ingestion workflow that would be as automated as possible. We will discuss the creation of an automated drop box processor that allows the dissertations to be ingested automatically, and a new embargo feature, which allows dissertations to be hidden until permission to display them is granted. We will conclude with a discussion of what is left to be done on this project, and ways in which the service can be improved in the future.

    Presentation slides and audio will be available via the Connect Meeting Service (formerly known as \"Breeze\"). Go to to view and listen to the presentation. If you are not a registered user for Connect Meeting/Breeze, select the \"Enter as a Guest\" option.

    “Still a Taboo: The Aesthetics of Childbirth”
    “Still a Taboo: The Aesthetics of Childbirth” is a program of images and discussion by Peg Brand, Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Women’s studies, who will teach this fall’s medical humanities class. She will include an illustration of a Renaissance scene of a “confinement room” with women surrounding the pregnant woman. (Men are rarely present and the women, after birth, are always shown celebrating.) The painted wooden chests and various objects indicate higher class and status. These scenes were often commemorated on double-sided, painted wooden childbirth trays, platters, or bowls as forms of domestic art. The trays were given as gifts to the woman for good luck. This Italian version of her image dates back to 1580.

    Peg’s new research will be part of a soon-to-be-published book entitled, Maternal Subjects: Philosophical Essays on Pregnancy, Birth, and Mothering. Brand’s presentation is part of the events surrounding the Changing the Face of Medicine: Celebrating America’s Women Physicians exhibit at the IUSM Library.

    Xpatents found in Robert Fulton book via Hathi Trust
    Hathi Trust to the Rescue! Two Robert Fulton X-patents (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Patent) which were lost in the 1836 Patent and Trademark Office fire were found in the Hathi Trust. Here is a link to the record: http://mirlyn.lib.umich.edu/Record/001623746.

    Everything in the Patent Office was lost to the Great Fire, all 10,000 or so patent records and several thousand patent models. While in the process of building a new fire proof building, the US patent office shared a building with the Post Office. At 3:00 in the morning on December 15, 1836, a messenger who was quartered in that building awoke to smoke. He roused others in the building who found the smoke coming from the cellar. Unfortunately, they could not reach the Patent Office portion of the building to rescue any documents. By the time a fire engine arrived, it was too late. The entire building was lost.

    After the fire, the Patent Office was faced with the mammoth task of restoring records and patent models. There were no patent records at hand save those in the mind of their single patent examiner and a book that a draftsman named William Steiger had borrowed from the Patent Office despite official rules that prohibited their removal from the Office. Thanks to the Hathi Trust, they have found two more missing patents. So far, about 2,800 patents have been recovered from various sources.

    HathiTrust Presentation
    Please join us for a preview of a presentation about HathiTrust we’ll be giving at the IU Statewide IT meeting. Our goal for this presentation is to introduce HathiTrust to a non-library audience, but we thought it might be a helpful starting point for more in-depth discussions within library, which we will be planning over the next several months.

    Who: Brenda Johnson, Gary Charbonneau, Julie Bobay
    What: Open Meeting: “HathiTrust: A Bold Idea with Big Plans”
    When: Monday, September 20, 1:00 – 2:00
    Where: Wells Library E 174

    Abstract:
    HathiTrust was born in 2008 as a collaboration of the thirteen universities of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (including Indiana University) and the University of California system. Its initial purpose was to build a trusted repository for research universities to archive and share their growing digitized collections, which are increasing at a rapid rate through digitizing projects with Google Books and Internet Archive. In less than three years HathiTrust has redefined the notion of a shared digital library in terms of scale as well as functionality:
    - A partnership of 29 research libraries (and counting),
    - More than 6 million volumes (20% in public domain)
    - 2.3 billion pages
    - 245 terrabytes
    - Search functionality based on quality metadata as well as full-text
    - Special services designed for researchers, such as “Collection Builder”

     This is just the beginning. By 2012, HathiTrust is expected to have grown to14 million volumes, surpassing in size every library in the United States or Canada except Harvard (at 16 million) and the Library of Congress. Not only will it be bigger by far than most physical research libraries, it has the potential to accomplish far more than its initial purpose. Chief among them is to open access for large quantities of materials that are no longer under copyright and works whose rights owners wish to make openly available.

    Not a separate entity, not a 501(c)3, not an entirely new organization, HathiTrust is an experiment in a jointly-owned, funded and governed shared resource. In 2008, a 5-year governance structure modeled on other non-profit, community-funded projects was established, headed by a Strategic Advisory Committee and an Executive Committee, on which IU’s Brad Wheeler, Chief Information Officer, and Brenda Johnson, Dean of Libraries, serve. The governance agreement requires review in year three of every 5-year plan. In this first phase, primary development responsibility has resided with the University of Michigan, with responsibility for a mirror site at Indiana University. As HathiTrust grows, many development and support functions are being undertaken by partner libraries. One of the exciting projects being planned, with involvement of several Indiana researchers, is the development of a HathiTrust Research Center to support large-scale computing analysis.
     
    Many are convinced HathiTrust will shape the future of research libraries. In this talk we will discuss HathiTrust’s current status, its relationship with Google Books and how it is different, new features expected in the near term, and future development plans.

    Jenn Riley, Metadata Librarian
    Digital Library Program

    The RDF model underlying Semantic Web technologies is frequently described as the future of structured metadata. Its adoption in libraries has been slow, however. This is due in no small part to fundamental differences in the modeling approach that RDF takes, representing a \"bottom up\" architecture where a description is distributed and can be made up of any features deemed necessary, whereas the record-centric approach taken by libraries tends to be more \"top down\" relying on prespecified feature sets that all should strive to make the best use of. This presentation will delve deeply into the differences between these two approaches to explore why the RDF approach has proven difficult for libraries, look at some RDF-based initiatives that are happening in libraries and how they are allowing different uses of this metadata than was previously possible, and pose some questions about how libraries might best make use of RDF technologies.

    HathiTrust Presentation
    Addendum to September 10 announcement of HathiTrust presentation

    The September 10, 2010 issue of IUL News included an announcement of a presentation on HathiTrust, to be given by Brenda Johnson, Julie Bobay, and Gary Charbonneau, Monday September 20, 1:00 – 2:00, Wells Library E174. This particular session will be a practice run of a presentation that we are giving the following week at the Statewide IT Conference. Even though it will be geared toward a non-librarian audience, our intention was to invite librarians and library staff to this practice run if they were interested.

    We know there is broad interest in this topic, and anyone interested in this session is welcome. If you miss this one, or can’t find a seat in the limited space, please be assured that there will be forums, discussions and presentations that will be geared toward a library audience.

    In the meantime, please follow HathiTrust’s development at its website
    http://www.hathitrust.org/

    Victorian Women Writers Project
    The Indiana University Digital Library Program and Indiana University Libraries are proud to announce the launch of the newly redesigned Victorian Women Writers Project: .

    The Victorian Women Writers Project (VWWP) was begun in 1995 at Indiana University under the determined leadership and editorship of Perry Willett. The VWWP was celebrated early on for exposing lesser-known British women writers of the 19th century, writers whose popularity did not make the transition into the 20th century or inclusion in a literary canon. Originally the VWWP focused on poetry, but soon Willett acknowledged the variety of genres in which women of that period were writing – novels, children’s books, political pamphlets, religious tracts and so on. Thus the collection was expanded to include genres beyond poetry and so the VWWP grew until about the turn of the twenty-first century, ultimately including approximately two hundred texts as part of the corpus.

    Quiet since 2003, the VWWP is pleased to be back with an expanded purview that includes women writing in the nineteenth century in English beyond Britain. As before, the project will devote time and attention to the accuracy and completeness of the texts, as well as to their bibliographical descriptions. New texts, encoded according to the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) P5 Guidelines, will adopt principles of scholarly encoding, facilitating more sophisticated retrieval and analysis.

    To learn more about the technical details surrounding the new web site, please visit the project information page (http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/vwwp/projectinfo.do), where specifics about text encoding and technical implementation are provided. Or skip the boring stuff and explore the new web site: .

    Digital Library Brown Bag: Ethnomusicology Multimedia
    Greetings! Please join us this coming Wednesday, October 6th for a digital library brown bag presentation by Will Cowan. The presentation will be held at the Herman B Wells Library, room E174, from 12:00-1:00.

    Ethnomusicology Multimedia - Books and Online Multimedia
    Will Cowan, Manager, Systems Development
    Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities

    In 2010, Indiana University Press, Kent State University Press and Temple University Press received a Mellon grant to create a new series of books on Ethnomusicology by new authors called Ethnomusicology Multimedia. One of the key features of this new series of books is that discussion and content in the book will be linked to multimedia on the web so that readers will be able to see or hear the specific songs, dances, ceremonies, etc. that are being discussed in the books by linking to a web site and playing back video, audio or images related. To help the editors, authors and the presses work with and maintain this web site, the development staff at the Institute for Digital Arts and Humanities, are developing an online tool that will allow editors and authors to segment and annotate uploaded video, audio and image files and then provide the necessary information to link those annotated segments to references in the published books. But beyond assisting authors and editors, this new online tool will also assist the presses in determining the content to move to the web site so that readers will have access to the multimedia materials associated with a given book. In essence, like a content management system, the online tool will be a Annotation Management System, allowing the presses to copyedit, review and publish multimedia materials to the readers' web site to provide additional resources for the published book.

    I will discuss the process of designing and building the Online tool and demo a prototype that we have developed for the project.

    InULA Holiday Luncheon
    I’m very excited about our holiday luncheon this year!  We’ve got great speakers lined up and exciting door prizes planned, not to mention a tasty lunch catered by Food Works J.

    When: Friday, December 10, 2010, 11:30-1:30
    Where: Neal Marshall Black Culture Center Grand Hall
    Cost: InULA Members: $7.50, Non-Members: $10.00
    Please RSVP at : http://www.iidc.indiana.edu/cedir/invitation/inula.html

    Speakers: Anita Bracalente and Jim Capshew speaking about the Dunn's Woods restoration project.

    Named in honor of Moses F. Dunn the farmer who sold his land to Indiana University in 1883, Dunn's Woods was described by the Indiana University Board of Trustees of the time as "a site unsurpassed in the state for its natural beauty and fitness for the purpose." Generally located east of Indiana Avenue - behind Bryan Hall, in 1980 the woods along with the surrounding campus buildings known as the Old Crescent were added to the National Register of Historic places following a long history of individuals who sought to preserve our campus green spaces and historic buildings. For as Herman B Wells said in his last presidential address, these spaces are "our most precious islands of green and serenity - our most important physical asset, transcending even classrooms, libraries, and laboratories in their ability to inspire students to dream long dreams..."

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    2011 College Book Art Association Conference
    Where: Indiana Memorial Union, Bloomington, Indiana                           
    When: January 13-16, 2011
    **Early Bird Registration ends Dec. 1, 2010
    (note: you must be a member of CBAA to register for the conference)

    The 2nd Biennial CBAA Conference title this year is Word Image Text Object.  Attendees will discuss topics related not only to the conference title, but also to the diverse pedagogical and scholarly subjects of interest to teaching faculty, librarians, and students involved in the study of book art. 

    The venue for the conference will be the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU) located in the center of campus at Indiana University Bloomington.  The School of Fine Arts, the IU Art Museum, the Fine Arts Library, the Lilly Rare Book Library, and the Kinsey Institute are all within close proximity to the IMU.  In addition to a full slate of conference activities at the IMU, the conference events and activities will take full advantage of campus resources and special collections.

    The conference will open on Thursday, January 13, with a reception at the Lilly Rare Book Library, 5-6:00.  A welcome reception will also be held in the IMU from 6-7:30.  Eighteen panels, held Friday through Saturday, will bring speakers from across the country and from abroad to discuss all aspects of book art, from zines to fine press, from classroom to library pedagogy, from the book-as-object to the book-as-performance, from the historical book format to ‘gestural brainstorming’. 

    On Friday evening the featured keynote speaker is Ann Hamilton.  Hamilton is a visual artist, recognized internationally for the sensory surrounds of her large-scale multi-media installations. Noted for a dense accumulation of materials, her liminal environments create immersive experiences that poetically respond to the architectural presence and social history of their sites. She received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in Sculpture from the Yale University School of Art in 1985.  Among her many honors, she has received the Heinz Award, a MacArthur Fellowship, a Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship, a NEA Visual Arts Fellowship, a United States Artists Fellowship. She has also been chosen to represent the United States at the 48th Venice Biennale. Currently, she is a Professor of Art at Ohio State University.

    Time will be provided during the conference for Student Portfolio Reviews on Friday, January 14, from 12:30–3:00 pm and on Sunday, January 16, 8:30-10:00 am.  There will also be Open Portfolio Reviews on Saturday, January 15, 12:30-2:00 pm, and Sunday, January 16, 10:30-12:00 pm.  You can sign up for your preferred time slot when you register.

    A variety of tours and workshops will bookend the conference on Thursday, January 13; Friday, January 14; and Sunday, January 16th.  Workshops will offer opportunities not only to learn about new technologies for teaching or creating new works, but also will provide a chance to dabble in the art and tradition of book-making, printmaking, and papermaking.  Attendees can sign up for general tours of the IU book and paper conservation facility, the print room at the IU Art Museum, the gallery of the Lilly Library, and the gallery and special collections at the Kinsey Institute.  On Friday, January 16, there will be a handful of “behind the scenes” tours at the Lilly Rare Book Library and the Kinsey Institute.  Register early to sign up for these special tours! 

    There will be time for revelry and making merry, too.  There will be two opening receptions on Thursday, January 13, with a reception for the juried members’ exhibition on Friday, January 14, in the School of Fine Art (SoFA) Gallery from 7-9:00.  On Saturday there will be an awards banquet dinner (included in the price of registration) with time to peruse the silent auction and take advantage of the cash bar before dinner at 7:00.

    CBAA has nearly 400 active members from 6 countries (USA, Switzerland, Portugal, Canada, Scotland, and Hong Kong).  The Association has come a long way since the first ad-hoc planning meeting at the Artist Book Conference at Wellesley College in 2005.  It is the only professional organization in North America devoted exclusively to the concerns of academic teaching faculty in book art. 

    Check out the conference website at www.collegebookart.org

    Digital Library Brown Bag Presentation
    Greetings! Please join us Wednesday, December 1st for our final digital library brown bag presentation this semester by Michael Maben and Michelle Dalmau. The presentation will be held at the Herman B Wells Library, room E174, from 12:00-1:00.

    The Brevier Legislative Reports and the Indiana General Assembly, 1858-1887
    • Michael Maben, Cataloging Librarian, IUB Law Library
    • Michelle Dalmau, Digital Projects & Usability Librarian, Digital Library Program

    In May of 2008, the Indiana University Maurer School of Law Library, in close collaboration with the Digital Library Program, applied for and received an LSTA grant from the Indiana State Library to digitize the Brevier Legislative Reports. These reports are a verbatim transcription of the Indiana General Assembly from 1858 to 1887, detailing the prosecution of the Civil War, along with debate over issues ranging from prohibition, women\'s suffrage, sheep-killing dogs, railroad train whistles and hanging Confederate President Jefferson Davis on the nearest \"Sour Apple Tree.\" The set consists of almost 8,000 pages in 22 bibliographic volumes (two volumes were never published). In this talk we will discuss the process to digitize this set with the unique issues encountered when dealing with a legislative record including enacted and proposed legislation, governor\'s messages and vetoes, roll-calls and recorded votes, and supplemental material.
    --------------

    Presentation slides and audio will be available via the Connect Meeting Service (formerly known as \"Breeze\"). Go to to view and listen to the presentation. If you are not a registered user for Connect Meeting/Breeze, select the \"Enter as a Guest\" option.
    --------------

    The Digital Library Brown Bag series will commence with a new program in the Spring 2011 semester. Stay tuned for the Spring schedule by checking our web site, , or joining our listserv.

    ULAN new repositories
    Image cataloging requires using the locations and names of thousands of museums, collections, palaces, and other types of site-related repositories of art and cultural objects. For many years, Image catalogers just typed a combination of city and institutional name for this purpose, i.e. Paris, Louvre. When we started cataloging into databases, we started to build in-house authority lists with these combined elements. The Getty Authorities came to be the standard for both personal names (ULAN) and place names (TGN), but the only exhaustive list (i.e. over 10,000) of cultural object repositories was the Locations Appendix of the Grove Dictionary of Art, which later was available digitally via Grove Art Online. Here at Indiana, We began to create a database version of the Grove Art Repository Listing almost fifteen years ago, and continued to use this successfully as well as sharing it with other colleagues.

    With the adoption of VRA Core 4.0, the Cataloging of Cultural Objects (CCO) and fully relational image cataloging databases such as Vireocat (and now Shared Shelf), came recognition that authorities are valuable and useful primarily when data is parsed into discrete fields, and when a unique ID number can be assigned to each authorized value. While we were able to incorporate ULAN, TGN, and AAT values into our relational databases relatively easily, the creation of an authoritative, unique value for cultural object repositories remained elusive as neither ULAN or TGN included these values and yet the Grove Art Locations Appendix contained no unique reference id numbers and contained many duplicate or incorrect entries.

    So I began a project to take our database version of the Grove Art Repositories and link them to their appropriate TGN city and site values. This proved to be a rather difficult project, one taking several years and a close collaboration with colleagues at the Getty Authorities to arrive at correct correlations between sites listed in the Grove and existing, or non-existing, sites in the TGN. Many values had to be added to the TGN and many corrections and merging of duplicate repository designations had to be made to the Grove listings. The success of my project owes much to the efforts of Jonathan Ward, Data Standards Editor for the Getty Vocabularies Program and former FAVRC image catalogers Rebecca Moss (now Univ. of Minnesota) and Julie Simic (now Univ. of Oregon).

    Originally, I discussed the future use of this combined authority listing with both Christine Kuan of the Grove Art Online and Murtha Baca and Patricia Harpring of the Getty Authorities. Both endeavors received a spreadsheet version of the combined data, along with a list of problems still in need of resolution. Eventually, it was decided that the most valuable way of providing the image cataloging community with a useful tool was to incorporate the repository listings, with their correct TGN site values, into the Getty’s ULAN.

    This is what “went live” last week. Over 10,000 repository listings, each with a unique id number, are now available via ULAN. Indiana University now has three listings in ULAN: Indiana University (500304611); Indiana University Art Museum (500304613); and Indiana University Auditorium (500304614). The Louvre Museum in Paris is ULAN id# 500125189, and is associated with the TGN listing for Paris (Ville de Paris department, Île-de-France, France) (inhabited place), TGN refid 7008038. The ULAN record for each repository also includes multiple variant names for the museum, which will provide a level of clarity, and consistency not previously possible in printed listings of world museums, while the Getty’s existing procedures for corrections and additions will allow the listings to stay current. Each of the 10,000 plus entries contains the tag: ”[FAL-IU] ... 2100146297/Grove Dictionary of Art online (1999-2002)”

    The ULAN repository listings will also now be an important component of the Getty Authorities newest, and most ambitious, project, the Cultural Object Name Authority (CONA) which will provide a unique identification for individual works of art and material culture. ARTstor’s new Shared Shelf cataloging system already incorporates dropdown ULAN values for artist or creator and could easily be configured to do the same for the Location/ Repository field. There is still a need, however, for a spreadsheet version of the repository listings with their new ULAN refids that could easily be incorporated into existing image cataloging databases. I hope to finish that before I retire in May.
