Freedman Fellows Presentation Series: The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History - Rebuilding a Digital Humanities Platform for a New Century
WHEN: Friday, October 19th, 12:30pm-2:00pm
WHERE: Clark Hall, Room 206 (11130 Bellflower Road)
Join us for the next installment in our presentation series as Freedman Fellow Dr. John Grabowski discusses the motivation to move the online Encyclopedia of Cleveland History (http://ech.case.edu) to a new level of utility and technical viability. First published in hard copy in 1987, the Encyclopedia has sold over 14,000 copies and made its move to the web in 1998.
The online edition has expanded and evolved over the past fourteen years, currently containing over 4,400 articles. Hear about Grabowski’s venture to determine the best means to add to it new, media-rich material; how to open that material to a system of “tagging;” and how to adapt the infrastructure to be sustained and expanded in the 21st century.
Additionally, Grabowski and co-presenters Kirsten Nagel (Marketing, Communications and Training Manager, ITS) and Katie O'Keefe (Web Developer, University Marketing & Communications) will discuss the University’s progress towards creating a centralized web creation & hosting environment, and how projects such as this can be incorporated into this new vision for faculty support.
This presentation is free to attend. Pizza and beverages will be provided.
