Group 1d-B

(pb1d2-07 to -10, and -34)

Group 1/Tues Morn 1

Tasks v. practice?
Long term practice:
-Feedback and communicate
    -via colleagues and students
-Define subjects/issues to 'train' the students
-Ability to identify the topic/text/problem that will be interrogated
Problem > Articulate
Collect Data

Interrogation cont.

Compare to other interrogations/study/fields
    Define and refine the problem by individuals through RFP and reading
    A type of data collection and definition (ambiguous relationships)
    Occurs in process
    "Not consciously systematic"

Coming to insight
Ability to incorporate and transform the ideas to create a significant "contribution" to the scholarship

Practice: "Support the scholar"
-"Scanning" - Reading/talking/looking
Task: reframing the question
    Q - I need a tool!!
    Q2 - Why?
    LIB - "Ref Interview"

(pb1d2-34 [bottom row, middle column])
[context] = collaborative and interdisciplinary research
Requires different modes of assimilation

Task-defining audience for the "product"

(pb1d2-34 [bottom row, last column])
    Like reading
        Assimilating new knowledge
Process - translation
    -From Q to Need

-Connect scholars to archives/resources/expertise
-Digitize material (e.g., film) for teaching
-Build text analysis software (ex.: Text Garden)
    (written in small print in pen)
    -not well known outside Princeton
    -programmer left "dead" programming language
    -hard to generalize specialist tools
-sustainability a huge issue for work that was "beautiful" in its time (orphaned works)
    -scholars' interest wanes too (orphaned works)
-No mechanism to keep specialty software/sites alive beyond a short period of time
-Work at home - more productive than lib - IF materials needed are at hand

-recognize similar handwriting
-apply metadata to scholarly texts, images, etc. - using standard markup, standards, etc.
-Search for discussion of problem "X" (i.e., semantic search) in secondary literature (no clear path forward on this in digital space - a PB focus?)
-Discover what other scholars are interested in - within and across disciplines
-Relate different index (taxonomy) systems (e.g., across disciplines)
-Secondary lit. searches across languages, mixed degrees of digitization

-Obscure scholarly interest in advance of publication
    -but is this loosening us? Some think so.

-Learn about faculty needs
    -See where to take this for staff
-Survey - 2nd biggest need - largest responders - humanities and arts

-After consulting -
    -Gap analysis
        -can we meet needs
        -how to fund needs we want to meet
    -Advise faculty

After 17 years at Harvard, learned never to talk to librarians

My colleagues don't talk with infrastructure people

Surveys may just be activity - don't do anything

Most institutions are institutionally based - at my institution

Gaps between scholars and disc. Practice

Gap - projects we don't take on. What happens to them?

Practice - project design with faculty

Discuss specific expertise
    -need someone who is an expert in philology

Project planning - need better market analysis

Unique tools for single product us. Larger/scalable tool

Ex. - conflict over metadata - built own authority list

How do you merge depth in field w/breadth in field?

How do we talk to each other?
What language do we use?
How to solve for re-use next year?

Auth list -
    Certain about (????)
    -must admit
    -Australian effort to put Auth. List @ heart -
    -harvest and verify
    -open/expands community
Librarian's anxiety - if some is crap, can all be?
Work on disconnect between how we build and how user will use it

How do you get to innovation?
    When scholars don't see use/necessity
    Going beyond established practice
Scholar says how much longer will this take?
Australia/New Zealand - collaborative projects - regular meetings
(???) in Ireland - in omnibus prop. Cult. Resources - focus on what building can bec. Infrastructure.

Making connections -
    Synthesis/pubs (drink beer), conf. faceable.
    Talking to scholars, colleagues
    Best practices

Ex. Text. written by one of 150 Georges the Monk
    How does that uncertainty get captured?

Res. Problem = (???) problem for which there may be no answer?

CS field not represented at this table
    Probability analysis
    Make them explicit and analyzable
    But experts reject
    As non-experts accept non-critically
Humanist - expertise wk against kinds of tools we're building

Web 2.0
Can we build tools to support humanist inquiry - therefore extremely flexible

    ex. Two! Surrogate text
        -to migrate - must strip out useful information/metadata

Fedora as standards and what facilitates conversations
    -necessary to migrate
        -must go beyond TEI/Deb. (???) core for standards
    -Humanists well-positioned to take this on
