Presentations
 
Playing Ball: Flash-building a Linked Open Data Tool for Digital Baseball Collections
Alex Humphreys(1), Jaime Mears(2)
1: JSTOR Labs; 2: Library of Congress Labs
 
In July 2018, the Labs teams from Library of Congress and JSTOR conducted a flash build to create a new tool for baseball researchers using Wikidata to connect their corpora. We’ll share the project, describe the methodology and technology, and recommend ways libraries can leverage both for their own projects.
 
 
Using Deep Learning to Identify and Categorize Book Annotations: A Collaboration between Digital Librarians and Computer Science Students
Dawn Childress, Peter Broadwell
UCLA, United States of America
 
This snapshot reports on an ongoing effort to use deep-learning approaches to detect and classify handwritten annotations in a large collection of eighteenth-century printed books held at the UCLA William Andrews Clark Library, illustrating the promises and some challenges of using these technologies in digital libraries.
 
 
Wikidata, Digital Collections and Open Social Knowledge Creation
Dean Seeman
University of Victoria, Canada
 
This presentation will focus on the relationship between digital collections in cultural institutions and Wikidata. In particular, to what extent should cultural institutions layer their work to not only focus on access and discovery of their local (or locally digitized) resources but to intentionally engage with open social knowledge creation?
 
 
Strategies for Sustainability and Preservation: the case of the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI)
Émilie Pagé-Perron
University of California Los Angeles, University of Toronto
 
Sustainability and preservation can be key concerns for digital libraries. The CDLI has embraced open access, innovation, and partnership to ensure it's longevity over the last two decades. This talk will discuss strategies developed and employed to this effect and will look into the future of the initiative.

WITHDRAWN - We All Do Metadata Now: Distributed Digital Collections Cataloging at the University of Oregon Libraries
Sarah Seymore
University of Oregon, United States of America
 
This presentation will describe new, distributed digital collections cataloging workflows for unique digital collections materials at the University of Oregon Libraries. It will outline training and onboarding materials and methods for “traditional” catalogers, and sharing of expertise across units, especially for the creation and sharing of authority records.
