Ramping Up to the Presentation and What Comes After

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 […]

ZUC – Switch from test to live site

This week Marti and I made some final adjustments to the Zine Union Catalog in terms of user interface. Once we felt comfortable that the site’s look and flow was consistent with our goals, we set a deadline for the switch of all accepted changes to the live site. The deadline was on Saturday 5-13, […]

ZUC – Looking Back

In making the presentation, I’m now having to look back and review some of the accomplishments – as well as goals – that the ZUC project had. The practice presentation showed me how important it is to really distill the major points of the project for maximum effect. I was having issues with actually deciding […]

ZUC In Review

The Zine Union Catalog has been coming along relatively well. However, the Spring break caused some sluggish progress in development because co-working in person became difficult. The reason this caused issues is because my work relied heavily on cooperative work with Lauren on the creation of maps, data imports, and other metadata-specific objectives. Once the […]

First, what drew me to the project was the assumed ease of development through the use of Collective Access (CA). While it is undoubtedly easier than […]

Zine Catalog Development – Week 1 Reflection

Considering I have close to zero programming experience, the role of developer is rather daunting. Luckily, the reason I didn’t object to the role is that much of the developing work will be done with pre-assembled packages such as Collective Access (CA). Immediately after our class, I began researching the initial steps we will have […]

NYCDH Week Reflections.

  I attended two events offered through the Grad Center. One was an introduction to physical computing with Arduino Solo and the second was an introduction to GitHub. GitHub work struck me as the more complicated endeavor but that may be because it requires fiddling with network stuff. For example, setting up my own GitHub […]

  • 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
