UC DLFx 2018 has ended

The inaugural 2018 University of California Digital Library Forum (UC DLFx) "Building the UC Digital Library: Theory and Practice" will explore a range of topics such as engaging, enhancing our communities and creating data from materials at our respective University of California libraries; demystifying data curation; project collaboration; using emerging technologies such as 3D scanning to enhance access, and creating a UC system wide standard for born digital archival material.

24 (Research Data) Things at UCI
One of the UC Irvine Libraries strategic goals was to provide further training on data management and curation for liaison librarians and staff. Utilizing the 23 (Research Data) Things from ANDS, a 10-week asynchronous course was created using the free version of the Canvas LMS.  The online course still contains three levels of learning but the “Things” are organized into modules, with a new module being released each week.  An online asynchronous approach was created due to staff and time constraints which would make instructor lead instruction/orientations difficult to administer.  A beta test of the course was recently conducted with a small group of librarians. This presentation will share the online course, what worked and didn’t work, and the feedback gathered from beta participants.

SRLF Imaging Service
An overview of the Imaging Services (IS) Unit located at the Southern Regional Library Facility (SRLF) on the UCLA campus. Staffed by 4 full time image capture technicians, the IS unit fulfills scanning requests from UCLA, the other nine UC Libraries, other academic and public libraries and the general public. The Unit scans a wide variety of materials, including but not limited to monographs, serials, microfilm, photographic negatives, oversized objects such as maps, blue prints and posters, yearbooks, archival materials such as correspondence and scrapbooks, etc. IS has a variety of digital image capture equipment including multiple cameras and digital backs along with tables and cradles to safely and securely hold the materials during image capture. We are experienced handing and capturing images from materials that are in good or poor condition. We can deliver masters and derivatives via hard drive or download.

VSim: Getting the job done with DSpace, while avoiding all the traps of customization
This will be a brief case study of how UCLA Library customized an instance of DSpace 6x, to deliver all the business logic goals of the NEH-grant-funded VSim project, while avoiding making any major customization of DSpace internal code. We'll shine a spotlight on some code we borrowed from the DSpace community, and the ways we bent existing functionality to deliver a working repository of 3D Architectural models.
