Ramping Up to the Presentation and What Comes After

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 In preparation for presenting, the ZUC group made all the last changes to the site and transition from test site to live site. Unfortunately, the transition was for front-end configurations only, and several small (but important) changes had to be changed manually. This includes changing the default setting for objects, entities, and collections so that they are automatically made public after imported into the catalog. This had been done before on the test site with Eric’s help. Unfortunately, that session was not documented and I encountered an issues when trying to recreate Eric’s process, a major one.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Unfortunately, what I did instead was to change the “Role Access” to the UI Editor Screen so that the Admin had the ability to edit elements on said screen. (Pictured)

5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Somehow, having done this, I also made the system remove the UI Editor screen from its “default” collection of screens (pictured), which is a huge problem considering this screen controls all other UI screens including those for editing objects and collections.

9 Leave a comment on paragraph 9 0 This was the error I got when trying to access ANY UI editor screen. Very. Bad.

10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 I quickly got in contact with Eric who told me that there was no option but to roll back the database. Luckily, I had done a backup during the transition from test to live site. When trying to do a rollback, I encountered an error (pictured) but, after a few attempts and a little bit of “just waiting to see if anything changes,” it worked!

But, at least I managed to recover from a big whoopsie, so I’m not complaining. This can be resolved at a later time.

14 Leave a comment on paragraph 14 0 After the presentation was done, I focused my attention towards making this project a cornerstone of possible job applications for the future. To do this, I created a short and simple Digital Project Representation in PDF format to briefly explain what the Zine Union Catalog is, what it does, and to highlight my work in its development. (See below.)

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at cuny.is/dps17.
