Description

Occidental College (Oxy) has been working to develop curriculum and technical infrastructure for sharing curated archival and undergraduate research projects between educational and cultural heritage institutions. This session presents a case study of a pilot undergraduate course in the humanities which deployed the digital scholarly authoring platform Scalar as a means to engage a collection of Russian Avant-garde artist books housed at the Getty Research Institute (GRI). The session will feature a live demonstration of a new middleware tool, Tensor, which has an iTunes-like interface for collecting and migrating content between digital archives and publishing platforms. Tensor will bridge Scalar, as long-form online scholarly publication platform, with Global Crossroads, Oxy’s short-form site-based presentation system, placing these systems in close proximity to each other as a new, open-source and modular system for facilitating and disseminating digital scholarship.
