AVAnnotate: Curating AV Digital Exhibits with IIIF and the Gloria Anzaldúa and Stella Adler Archives
(Texas Digital Library, 2024-05-21) Clement, Tanya; Wintermeier, Trent; Turner, Sam
This two-hour introductory workshop will teach participants how to use AVAnnotate ( First, participants will learn the AVAnnotate application, which starts with creating or using existing IIIF manifests, developing annotations, and building static web pages with GitHub Pages to present and share digital exhibits. Workshop leaders will teach through showcasing example AVAnnotate exhibits by showing the process used to create projects using recordings from the Gloria Anzaldúa collection at the LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections and the Stella Adler film collection at the Harry Ransom Center. The Adler and Anzaldúa collections are significant case studies that demonstrate AVAnnotate approaches to developing interventions into practices around creating AV access at LAMs, which are often made less accessible because of cultural, privacy, or copyright concerns. Finally, participants will be invited to discuss protocols for accessing audiovisual artifacts at their respective institutions, and how applications such as AVAnnotate can facilitate engagement with AV collections. AVAnnotate is an application and a workflow, designed by Dr. Tanya Clement and Brumfield Labs, which allows users to build digital exhibits of annotated audiovisual artifacts. AVAnnotate is free to use and leverages open-source resources such as GitHub and IIIF, making it well suited for archivists and librarians promoting accessibility and discovery with audiovisual archival collections held at libraries, museums, archives (LAMs), and other cultural heritage institutions. The workshop seeks to add to the digital toolkit for LAM professionals and researchers and to spark conversation about the changing nature of LAM AV archival practices for access and discovery. BEFORE THE WORKSHOP: The presenters suggest you create a free GitHub account ( and bring a laptop and headphones if available.
Reignite Your Documentation: A High-Intensity Interval Writing Workshop
(Texas Digital Library, 2024-05-21) Edwards, Brenna; Kim, Hyeeyoung
Did your New Year’s resolution include 'Document all my workflow and tools'? Still on your to-do list? If you need motivation and guidance, join us in this High Intensity Interval Writing workshop to make a difference right here, right now. We will help you develop a strategy to create documentation that you need but never have the time to develop. Through the UT Digital Preservation group, the speakers of this workshop led six local Docuthons—a blend of Documentation and Hackathon— between September 2023 to March 2024. Drawing on the speakers' experience in organizing those events, this workshop is structured so attendees kick off their documentation draft and receive initial feedback. For each stage of the workshop, the speakers will blend practical advice from experienced technical writers with the Pomodoro Technique. This approach will allow attendees the opportunity to gain knowledge and apply what they have learned. After brainstorming, drafting, editing, and feedback sessions, attendees will leave with drafted documentation and resources to help them publish the documentation. Attendees are encouraged to arrive with a documentation topic in mind or existing documentation to work on, whether as simple as making a sandwich or as complex as preserving born-digital materials.
Wikidata Workshop
(Texas Digital Library, 2024-05-21) Cofield, Melanie; Pierce Meyer, Katie; Sharma, Yogita
Wikidata is a collaborative knowledge base built on the principles of open knowledge and linked data. This Wikidata workshop covers the basics of the data model and provides hands-on exercises for participants to contribute and query data. The session is intended for library and archives staff, as well as digital humanities scholars, with an interest in developing practical linked data skills. Workshop participants will be editing Wikidata entries related to people in the Handbook of Texas (HoT), specifically its projects related to expanding the representation of individuals from Texas history. While linked data knowledge is not a requirement, the workshop contents assume some familiarity with structured data and library/archival descriptive practices. The learning outcomes of the workshop include: - Understanding the basic structure of items, properties and statements on Wikidata - Understanding best practices and ethical considerations for creating and editing Wikidata items - Understanding value of queries and visualization tools to glean insights from Wikidata - Hands-on experience editing Wikidata items and adding references - Hands-on experience using SPARQL queries and visualization tools
