Sticker Mule

This is just some information sharing. I love Sticker Mule! I’m partial to their die cut stickers, which always seem to come out cheaper than the price listed. Here is some of their handiwork: Sticker Mule is in NYC, and their turnaround time is fast.

Data Management for an Information Professional

I wrote this in my diary last week, which I’ve been keeping private because I’m a weirdo, but I just realized the non-journal assignments should go here.  In my personal and professional practices, I have data, photos, and files in/on (as I think of them): Dropbox My work network drive Work Google drive Personal Google drive Facebook […]

Revised Zine Union Catalog Proposal

Based on class discussion blog comments, I have revised this proposal. The primary changes are additional information on Collective Access (see the link in the appendix), an explanation of the different catalog types, thoughts on sustainability, and tweaking of language to emphasize points and to frame the project’s uniqueness more positively. Overview[1] For several years, […]

DH Week Workshop: Design-Based Thinking for Humanists

I think I would have loved this workshop, if Niko hadn’t gotten involved. I signed up for Design-Based Thinking for Humanists for my DH Week workshop assignment. It appealed to me because I am not a designer, but having recently employed one at work, I’ve learned how magical what they do is. I’d like to be […]

A “union catalog” is a resource where libraries can share cataloging and holdings information, the prime example being WorldCat, which has thousands of member libraries.

Tableau Public Workshop | Lower East Side Librarian

My experience with Tableau Public (TP) may be colored by the fact that I am annoyed by its free-as-in-beer-for-some-people-and-not-at-all-free-as-in-speech status and the fact that you have to log in every step of the way. I dutifully created an account on my computer and downloaded the software, but when I tried to launch it, I got […]

DH school data project data set | Lower East Side Librarian

Zine Content Comparison Introduction As the curator and cataloger of a zine library with holdings going back to the early 1990s I am sometimes asked to comment on how zines have changed over time. I read and catalog zines out of time, as they rise to the top of the processing queue, which makes it […]

  • 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
