CONTENTdm for Art Teaching Images

The Rough Road in Reno

Glee Willis

Digital Projects Librarian

University of Nevada, Reno

every path to a new understanding begins in confusion

Every path to a new understanding begins in confusion.

Mason Cooley

This is the story of our political journey as we

learned to build our art-architecture collections.

slide3

What Will I Cover?

» Why CONTENTdm for art teaching images?

» The “team effort” to build the collection

(and, oh, by the way, end up with acceptable

metadata)

» Where and how we’ve stumbled along the way

» What’s on the horizon?

slide4

Why CONTENTdm for art teaching images?

» Started by considering more specialized tools for working

with teaching images (MDID and Almagest)

» Immersed myself in learning the “lingo” used by VRA folks

» Coaxed Greg Zick into including more “classroom

presentation tools” in CONTENTdm

» Introduced UNR’s art history “ring leader” to MDID;

Almagest’s code wasn’t ready for public release;

ditto VAGA from U of Denver

» Proceeded with CONTENTdm because we were already very

familiar with its capabilities, whereas MDID was lacking in so

many of them

slide5

The “team effort”

» Glee contacted Ed Teague at the U of Oregon about

his flattening of the VRA Core into the CONTENTdm

VRA Template

» Art history ring leader “stepped up” to formulate the data

dictionary for our flattened VRA template

» Glee worked with new media prof to load his images

» Glee worked with the art history ring leader to load her

images

» Art history ring leader solicited permission from Gardner

to load its art images into CONTENTdm as restricted items

slide11

Where and how we have stumbled along the way

» Mac owners didn’t want to “play well” with others

» Slide libraries are “different”

» Difficulty in assigning group permissions for entire

classes

» Understanding CONTENTdm’s approach to logging

in to restricted collections

» PowerPoint plug-in unable to handle JP2s

» Expense of running the Acquisition Station on Macs for

batch loads, edits, and item-level permissions assignments

slide12

What’s On The Horizon?

» Finish loading Davis Art Images purchased to date

» Train ceramics and book arts instructors to load

their images

» Incorporate more “bells and whistles” following

Reed College’s lead; create geospatial access(?)

» More “scrubbing” of the metadata for improved

user access

» Creation of “lecture sets” and “study sets”

» Linking from online course syllabi
