Raiders of the Lost Archive

This project was undertaken for the Survey of Digitization course offered in Spring 2012. Using an "archive raider," a DIY copystand described in a 2010 ProfHacker blog post, I captured high-resolution images of telephone transcripts at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum. I tested Dragon Naturally Speaking and ABBBYY FineReader to determine which would offer the most efficient means of turning these images into plain text that could accompany the audio files previously made available by the Miller Center.

Cordially Yours: A Joseph Conrad Omeka Exhibit

Francesca Giannetti, Paul Vinelli and I worked with the Joseph Conrad Papers at the Harry Ransom Center to create an Omeka exhibit featuring a number of letters between Conrad and his translators and publishers. This exhibit was intended to place these letters in their historical context and demonstrate relationships between them. We implemented a number of Omeka plugins, including CSV Import, Geolocation, HTML5 Media, and Simple Pages. We also used Voyant visualizations and TEI markup to encode our letters and explore linguistic connections.
