On November 15 and 16, 2018, NCC held a two-day Workshop on Digital Scholarship in Japanese Studies in cooperation with the Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton University.
The workshop schedule, session videos, presentations, and reading materials are available for viewing, along with photographs of the event. Please refer to the tabs to the left for more details!
Goals of the 2018 Workshop:
Since it was founded in 1991, the North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC) has been committed to improving access to new technology and resources for the Japanese Studies field. A major current focus of NCC’s programming and online services aims at defining best practices for creating, curating, and sustaining digital scholarship on Japan for teaching and research. NCC’s 2-day workshop focused on digital archives, highlighting both the possibilities and challenges of web archiving (Day One) and the uses of IIIF (International Image Interoperability Framework) (Day Two). The goals of this hands-on workshop were to examine the critical roles that librarians play in creating and sustaining innovative digital scholarship and to share experience among those who have created successful digital projects. During the course of the workshop, participants were asked to formulate a project for implementation at their home institutions. In a follow-up survey, NCC will track participants’ progress and publicize the results on the NCC website.
NCC would like to thank the Toshiba International Foundation for their generous support in making this workshop possible!
