Planned Activities: The Search for New Models
Build Electronic Resources
- The Electronic Book Technology grant will provide us with high-powered SGML-based digital text tools. The early part of the year will be spent learning, with our partners in the library, how to use these tools. Our plan is to develop two prototype projects: 1) Electronic Finding Aids based on the Berkeley Finding Aids DTD, and 2) an electronic edition of a primary resource drawn from Special Collections. In the course of building these prototypes we will also be exploring methods and models for faculty and students to use these tools.
- Continue to explore the potential of the web for creation and dissemintation of electronic texts and projects. This will include experimenting with web servers, web programming, and web text analysis tools.
- Work with departments to develop projects that offer student interns the opportunity to incorporate technology into their work while developing electronic scholarly resources.
Spread the News
- Continue to do guest lectures, presentations, and workshops for humanities-related computing and teaching with technology.
- Build partnerships with academic and key service departments to develop projects and integrate technology. Activities might include attendance at departmental meetings, sponsoring symposia in conjunction with such groups as the Humanities Center, and developing online learning opportunities.
- Continue to work with the VISMT Professional Development Committee to strengthen ties between Vermont's K-12 community and UVM.
