It was founded in 2003 to begin a broad and especially a practical dissemination of Alfred Jarry's ideas into the field of general education. Poet and intellectual entrepreneur, Jarry invented the discipline of 'Pataphysics, which he called "the science of exceptions" and "the science of imaginary solutions". 'Patacriticism is a scholarly and pedagogical derivative of Jarry's late nineteenth-century initiative.

"Since Jarry, a healthy crop of 'pataphysical and 'patacritical resources has sprung up, like wildflowers among the wheat, in the great plains of imagination. Is the West calling a new Charles W. Eliot LLD to fashion an "N-Dimensional shelf of books", "The Jarry Classics". Its foundations were laid in the late 19th-century's remarkable premonition of 'patacriticism.

"ARP is a workshop for designing and building educational tools. While ARP's tools are digital, they take their origin from a continuing investigation into the technology of the book and its extended network of communicative mechanisms. The power and sophistication of that network-- its capacity for simulating and harnessing creative human invention -- dwarfs our current digital tools and networks. Nonetheless, digital instruments are already clearing a space for themselves. We believe that digital culture will prosper to the degree that it can expose, understand, and augment our inherited bibliographical technology." ]

The changing faces of Technology:

A category of hardware and software that enables people to use the Internet as the transmission medium for telephone calls. For users who have free, or fixed-price Internet access, Internet telephony software essentially provides free telephone calls anywhere in the world. To date, however, Internet telephony does not offer the same quality of telephone service as direct telephone connections. There are many Internet telephony applications available. Some, come bundled with popular Web browsers. Others are stand-alone products. Internet telephony products are sometimes called IP telephony, Voice over the Internet (VOI) or Voice over IP (VOIP) products.

Since 1994, the has used digital media and computer technology to change the ways that people—scholars, students, and the general public—learn about and use the past. We do that by bringing together the most exciting and innovative digital media with the latest and best historical scholarship. We believe that serious scholarship and cutting edge multimedia can be combined to promote an inclusive and democratic understanding of the past as well as a broad historical literacy that fosters deep understanding of the most complex issues about the past and present. CHNM's work has been recognized with major awards from the American Historical Association and other national organizations, as well as with grants from the Sloan, Rockefeller, Gould, Delmas, and Kellogg foundations, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Department of Education, and the Library of Congress. Many CHNM projects have been undertaken in collaboration with the American Social History Project (ASHP)/Center for Media and Learning at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York (CUNY). A project of the .

"The collaborative timeline tool was designed by Casey Alt and Vince Dorie as a means for communities to construct multiple parallel timeline categories representing various structural dimensions significant to the development of a research field (or just about any subject of interest). Events can be added to the timeline by any member of the designated community together with any documentation related to the event, including original documentation to be stored in our database, or links to already existing documentation on the web. Links with commentary and accompanying documentation can be drawn between events considered closely connected. Events can be 'flagged' by members of the community for importance. The entire structure can be filtered to reflect the views of individual contributors or groups of contributors. All levels of the timelines, including events, commentary, and links are supported by a forum-type threaded discussion that is fully searchable." , is developing a data model and set of tools that will allow users of digital resources to assemble and share virtual "collections" and to present annotated "exhibits" and re-arrangements of online materials. These critical rearrangements can of course bring together materials that are variously diverse — materially, formally, historically.


The first Rossetti rearrangements will be undertaken by the Archive's general editor and by a few invited literary scholars and art historians, who will act as guest critics and curators, offering radically different perspectives on Rossetti and his circle, all based on the same corpus of digital files. Later, individual users will be able to assemble and comment on Archive materials in private collection spaces, choose whether to make those assemblages available to others, and then build and share annotated exhibits based on their own virtual collections or on existing, user-created work.


This toolset, developed under the direction of Bethany Nowviskie, aims to reveal the interpretive possibilities embedded in any digital archive by making the manipulation and annotation of archived resources open to all users. Once the basic collection/exhibition schema has been tested on the Rossetti Archive, it will be made available to all NINES projects.

Setting industry standards for digital collection management, CONTENTdm provides tools for everything from organizing and managing to publishing and searching digital collections over the Internet.

The most powerful and flexible digital collection management package on the market today, CONTENTdm handles it all—documents, PDFs, images, video, and audio files. CONTENTdm is used by libraries, universities, government agencies, museums, corporations, historical societies, and a host of other organizations to support hundreds of diverse digital collections.

Exploration of Resources

Joanna is interested in notions of "presence" in 18th-century French and English philosophers. She calls up her Scholar’s Aide (Schaide) utility to find the texts she wants to study. By clicking and dragging texts that meet her needs into Gatherings she creates a personal study collection that she can examine. An on-line thesaurus helps her put together a list of words in French and English that indicate presence (such as near and proche), and she searches for texts containing those words. She then launches a Schaide search that only looks in her Gathering, even though the texts are in different formats and at different sites. When she checks in after teaching her Ethics of Play class she finds a concordance has been gathered that she can sort in different ways and begin to study. She saves her concordance as a View to the public area on the Schaide Site so her research assistant can help her eliminate the false leads. Maybe she’ll use the View in her presentation at a conference next week once she’s found a way to visualize the results according to genre.

How can Humanists ask questions of scholarly evidence on the Web? Humanists face a paradox of abundance and scarcity when confronting the digital realm. On the one hand, there has been an incredible growth in the number and types of documents reflecting on our cultural heritage that are now available in digital form. Projects like Google Print will in the coming years dramatically expand that abundance. Tools for discovering, exploring, and analyzing those resources remain limited or primitive, however. Only commercial tools, such as Google, search across multiple repositories and across different formats. Such commercial tools are shaped and defined by the dictates of the commercial market rather than the more complex needs of scholars. The challenges faced by scholars using commercial search tools are:

• It is hard to ask questions across intellectually coherent collections. What the inquirer considers a collection is usually spread across different on-line archives and databases, each of which will have a different search interface.

• Many resources are inaccessible except with local search facilities and many are gated to prevent free access.

• You cannot ask questions that take advantage of the metadata in many electronic texts indexed by commercial tools.

• You cannot ask questions that take advantage of structure within electronic scholarly texts (such as those encoded in TEI XML.)

• Where there is structure, it is rarely compatible from one collection to another.

• Collections of evidence are in different formats, from PDF to XML.

What kinds of tools would foster the discovery and exploration of digital resources in the humanities? More specifically, how can we easily locate documents (in multiple formats and multiple media), find specific information and patterns in across large numbers of differently formatted documents, and share our results with others in a range of scholarly disciplines and social networks? These tasks are made more difficult by the current state of resources and tools in the humanities. For example, many materials are not freely available to be crawled through or discovered because they are in databases that are not indexed by conventional search engines or because they are behind subscription-based gates. In addition, the most commonly used interfaces for search and discovery are difficult to build upon. And, the current pattern of saving search results (e.g., bookmarks) and annotations (e.g., local databases such as EndNote) on local hard drives inhibits a shared scholarly infrastructure of exploration, discovery, and collaboration.

The tasks are large, and many types of tools are needed to meet these goals. Among other things, our group saw the need for tools and standards that would facilitate:

• Multi-resource access that provide the ability to gather and reassemble resources in diverse formats and to convert and translate across those resources.

• A scholarly gift economy in which no one is a spectator and everyone can readily share the fruits of their discovery efforts.

• Serendipitous discovery and playful exploration.

• Visual forms of search and presentation.

But the group had a strong consensus, concluding that the most important effort would be one that focused on developing sophisticated discovery tools that would allow new forms of search and make resources accessible and open to discovering unexpected patterns and results. We described this as a “Google Aide for Scholars” (or Schaide in the story above) — something much broader than the bibliographic tool Google Scholar — that would be built on top of an existing search engine like Google but would allow for much more sophisticated searches than Google. Our talk of “Google” was not, however, meant to limit ourselves to a particular commercial product but rather to signal that we were interested in building on top of the existing infrastructure created by the multi-billion dollar search-industry giants such as Yahoo, MSN, and Google. Some of Schaide’s features would be:

• It would take advantage of commercial search utilities rather than replace them.

• It would allow scholars to create gatherings of resources that fit their research rather than be restricted by resources. These gatherings could be shared.

• It would allow scholars to formulate search questions in different ways that could be asked of the gatherings.

• It would allow scholars to ask questions that take advantage of metadata, ontologies and structure.

• It would negotiate across different formats and different forms of structure.

• It would allow researchers to save results for further study or sharing.

• It would allow researchers to view results in different ways.

Just as Google and the other search engine companies have created an essential search infrastructure that a tool-building effort like ours needs to leverage, there are also specific tool-creation efforts underway that we should at least examine closely and perhaps even embrace. Several were mentioned and discussed as part of the brainstorming process: Pandora (a search tool for music); Content Sphere (a personal search engine developed by Michael Jensen); Meldex (another music search tool); Syllabus Finder and H-Bot (tools that make use of Google API developed by Dan Cohen at CHNM); Firefox Scholar (a scholarly organization and annotation tool, also from CHNM); I Spheres (middleware that sits on top of digital collections); TAPoR (an online portal and gateway to tools for sophisticated analysis and retrieval based at McMaster University); Antartica (commercial data mining by Tim Bray); Citeseer; Proximity (a tool for finding patterns in databases developed by Jensen); personal search from commercial search engines (Google personal search and Yahoo Mindset); Amazon’s A9; Cluty; and data-mining packages (NORA, D2K, and T2K from NCSA).

We developed several key specifications for this new Google for Scholars. It would be extensibile through web services and, hence, might work as a plug in to Firefox or some other open client. It would be transparent in the sense that it would show you to see how it was working rather than simply hide its magic behind the scenes. It would also offer customizable utilities like a “query builder” that would allow you to write your own regular expressions and ontology. Most important, it would be able to plug in any ontology; filter results in complex ways and save those filters; classify and tag results; display, aggregate, and share search results.

But the success of such a tool also rests on the formatting of the resources that it seeks to access for the scholar. Scholarly resources — whether commercial aggregations (such as ProQuest Historical Newspapers), digital libraries (such as American Memory and Making of America), gated repositories of scholarly articles (such as JSTOR), and especially the emerging mega-resource promised by Google Print — need to be visible and open. Achieving that goal is more of a social and political problem than a technical challenge. But we can facilitate that goal by offering guidelines for how to make a site visible through existing and emerging standards, such as OAI and the XML approach followed by Google.

In general, then, we see on the one hand the need for a lobbying group that will promote making resources openly available and discoverable. On the other hand, we believe that the actual tools development can proceed in an incremental and decentralized fashion through three different development groups: (1) a group developing a client-based tool (perhaps built into the browser) that can access multiple resources but using Google; (2) a group developing a server-side repository that would aggregate information from searches and annotations; and (3) a decentralized group (or set of groups) that would write widgets, web services, and ontologies that would operate in the extensible client software as well as off the server.

Tools for interpretation:

This is not an existing tools project but rather a proposal for a tools project arising from the Digital Tools Summit at the University of Virginia. For more on the Summit see http://www.iath.virginia.edu/dtsummit/ or notes at http://tada.mcmaster.ca/Main/ToolSummitNotes.

Interpretation develops out of an encounter with material or experience, and out of a reaction to some provocation--in the form of ambiguity, contradiction, suggestion, aporia, uncertainty, etc. In literary interpretation, you start with reading, and when you stumble on an ambiguity, you decide if this is an interesting ambiguity, possibly a meaningful one, possibly an intended one. Next, you ask what opportunities for interpretation are offered by this ambiguity? In the next phase, interpretation moves from private to public, from informal to formal, as you rehearse and perform it, intending to persuade other readers to share your interest and your conclusions.

Commentary is one way to convey interpretation, and it can be embodied as annotation. Annotation might need to be attached to several points in the corpus of material under study: annotation always needs at least one point of attachment. You could have classes of commentary as well: a note to myself, a note to share, a note that has been peer-reviewed, a note that other people have noticed, a note that has been the subject of commentary, etc. Such annotations should attach to any type of media, should allow production of commentary in many media as well.

The discussion group on tools for interpretation identified the following abstract sub-components of annotation, as an interpretation-building process, grouped here by phases:

Phase 0
0.1 Identify the environment (discipline, media)

0.2 Encounter a resource (search, retrieval)

Phase 1
1.1. Explore a resource

1.2 Vary the scope/context of attention

Phase 2
2.1 Tokenize, segment the resource (automatically or manually)

2.2 Naming parts, renaming parts

2.3 Align annotation with parts (including time-based material)

2.4 Vary or match the notation of the original content

Phase 3
3.1 Sort and rearrange the resource (perhaps in something as formal as a semantic concordance, perhaps just in some unspecified relationship)

3.2 Identify and analyze patterns that arise out of relationships

3.3 Code relationships, perhaps in a way that encourages the emergence of an ontology of relationships (Allow formalizations to emerge, or to be brought to bear from the outset, or to be absent)

We considered that phases 0 and 1 were probably outside the scope of our immediate charge (though we hoped that other groups, like the group focusing on exploration, might help with some of these phases), and we thought that phases 2 and 3 were probably pretty squarely within the territory of tools for interpretation.

Further, we thought that tools for interpretation should ultimately allow you to do these things (including phases 0-3) in arbitrary order, and on or off the web (in the field, in other words). Though actually publishing annotations/interpretations/commentary is probably out of scope for a tool for interpretation, narrowly defined, we agreed that there's no question that one would want to disseminate interpretation at some point in the process, and that those annotations should ideally be connected to networked resources and to other interpretations.

We spent some time discussing the audience for the kind of tools we were imagining: developers? power users? All humanists? High school students? WIth respect to users, we agreed that it was best to develop for an actual use, not a hypothetical one, but that it was also salutary to build for more than one use, if possible. This brought up the question of whether we envisioned tools for more than one (concurrent) user: in other words, are we talking about seminar-ware? How collaborative should these tools be, and how collaborative must they be? Should they have an offline mode (for some, the answer to this question was clearly yes)? Should they allow, support, or require serial collaboration? In the end, we decided that the best compromise was a single-user tool designed in awareness of a collaborative architecture (and we hoped to get some more information about what such an architecture might look like, from the collaborative group).

We also discussed some more specific technical matters, for example:

At this point, in an effort to bring our discussion to bear on a particular tool, and to cut short an abstract discussion of tools (in general) for interpretation, we focused on a very specific kind of tool for annotation, namely a "highlighter's tool." We supposed that this tool would:

Well pleased with ourselves for being so close to actual specs for an actual tool, we decided to go a step further and name some specific examples of uses and users. The following list suggests the range of topics, sources, and goals that we hope such a tool (or toolkit) might support:

At the end of the discussion, a straw poll showed that half of the eighteen people in the room wanted to build this kind of tool, and all of them want to use it. We closed the discussion by affirming, once again, that we should build for particular applications and users but also in view of an agreed-upon set of requirements. The building process should include communication, if not collaboration, with other developers. We hope that follow-up from this event will result in people in this discussion realizing a framework for collaboration, and building tools for interpretation such as the ones imagined in this discussion. ]

(The Flexible Extensible Digital Object Repository Architecture) is exactly what the name suggests, an architecture for storage of and access to digital objects (stored in METS-encoded XML). Includes a set of APIs for access to the repositiory. Funded by Mellon, developed at UVA/Cornell, open source.

These were among the tools mentioned at the Fall 2004 Washington DC Area Forum on Technology and the Humanities: The Educated Browser: SmartFox, the Scholar's Web Browser

While many libraries and museums have put materials online, often at great expense, scholars and researchers using these institutions' online catalogs, collections, and documents currently have no easy or powerful way to use these resources, often resorting to a cobbled-together set of stand-alone applications (such as EndNote and Word) to make citations, take notes, and create personal collections and bibliographies. Few libraries and museums have had the resources to improve the user experience of their valuable resources.

The Center for History and New Media is building an open-source package of tools for libraries and museums that will work right in the web browser, where most research is now done. We are calling the project SmartFox: The Scholar's Web Browser, and it will enable the rich use of library and museum web collections with no cost—either in dollars, or probably more importantly, in secondary technical costs related to their web servers--to institutions. This set of tools will be downloadable and installable on any of the major open-source browsers related to the increasingly popular Firefox web browser: Firefox itself, Mozilla, and the latest versions of Netscape and the AOL browser (all based on the Firefox code base).

SmartFox will enable users, with a single click, to grab a citation to a book, journal article, archival document, or museum object and store it in their browser. Researchers will then be able to take notes on the reference, link that reference to others, and organize both the metadata and annotations in ways that will greatly enhance the usefulness of, and the great investment of time and money in, the electronic collections of museums and libraries. All of the information SmartFox gathers and the researcher creates will be stored on the client's computer, not the institution's server (unlike commercial products like Amazon's toolbar), and will be fully searchable. The Web browser, the premier platform for research now and in the future, will achieve the kind of functionality that the users of libraries and museums would expect in an age of exponentially increasing digitization of their holdings.

SmartFox is being developed by the Center for History and New Media (CHNM) at George Mason University with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

is a "framework for the creation of structured document analysis applications by domain experts." In other words, it's a system by which experts in a field who don't have technical knowledge can train a machine to recognize documents/patterns in their field.

The Institute for the Future of the Book was founded in 2004.

The following is taken from the original proposal to The Macarthur Foundation.

THE INSTITUTE FOR THE FUTURE OF THE BOOK.

Introduction

For more than 500 years, books —printed pages bound together — have served as the central mechanism for storing and transmitting knowledge.

Their effectiveness derives from:

• portability

• relative ease of manufacture and distribution

• authority — the permanence of the object confers confidence in authorship

• ease of reference — the division of a book into pages enables a “conversation” about the contents to take place over space and time

• random access — a reader may absorb the contents at whatever rate and in whatever order she likes

Over the next several decades, electronic, screen-based technologies will emerge which preserve all that is good and wonderful about printed books but which add profoundly powerful new capabilities. For example, future books will:

• allow authors to express ideas using audio, video and simulations in addition to text and graphics.

• contain significant and direct links to materials stored elsewhere on the internet.

• create a community of readers and authors by enabling people reading the same document or exploring the same subject area to connect to each other directly over the internet.

While it may be argued that the form of printed books (pages bound together by a spine) was inevitable, the new screen-based books has no such inevitable physically-imposed form. The challenge confronting us is to develop new forms that empower both authors and readers and enhance intellectual and social discourse throughout society.

We are inventing the future of human communication, and we need to do a good job of it.

The mission of the Institute for the Future of the Book is to play an important role in developing the form and function of books in the digital era.

The institute will be a place where artists, scholars, and technologists collaborate to address a broad range of questions, such as:

• how to define and assure authority of the text within a dynamic medium

• how readers know “where they are” within the more complex structures afforded by digital books

• how to integrate text with audio and video so that they do not work at cross-purposes. (This is key to the development of new rhetorical devices at the center of intellectual discourse.)

• working to define new ways of navigating and parsing complex “data spaces” – e.g. what high-level alternatives to the index might be devised?

• typography and iconography designed specifically for the screen

• in a wired world, how to encourage and enable readers to link to each other and to the author

• what is the best way to take several thousand years of analog culture into the digital era in a way that respects the original form but that also exploits the potential of emerging technologies to help readers see, hear, and read better?

The work of the institute will fall into three areas:

• Tool-making

Print culture owes its richness in large part to the fact that the tools required to write are simple and ubiquitous. If a similarly broad-based culture is to arise around screen-based electronic books, we need completely new, easy to use tools that will allow large numbers of people to author complex multimedia documents without the services of a programmer.

• Inspiring examples

The Institute will work to develop fully-realized dynamic, interactive digital documents that will serve as exemplars. As funds allow, visiting artists and technologists will be invited to the institute to work on new forms.

• Summarizing lessons and encouraging discussion

The institute will host symposia and conferences to encourage vigorous discussion of the key problems involved in the development of digital books.

It will also publish a web-based electronic journal to summarize, compare and disseminate advances in the field.

is an online visualization of objects from the collections of the Smithsonian's , is capable of analyzing multidimensional, multi-variate image data and allows the user to interact with the data. The environment also provides histogram, image ranking, image statistics, correlation matching, image thresholding, and isodata clustering. The tool handles multiple file formats such as jpg, gif, tif, pgm, ppm, and lan, and can handle combination bands from several image data sources. In addition, this environment offers a new image file format .iip (multi-band image with interleaved pixels) that can be displayed inside the tool or in your favorite web browser. Especially notable about the iip format is it's capacity for handling all possible datatypes (byte, short, integer, long, float, double). The images at right illustrate an integrated application and interface currently being developed by ALG that will process and analyze microarray image data. This effort takes already developed I2K technology and merges it into a single, unified interface."

is currently under development by SpecLab as Web-based software for use in research and pedagogy. Ivanhoe is suited to any discipline in the humanities concerned with textual and visual hermeneutics. The game promotes self-conscious awareness about interpretation and seeks to encourage collaborative activity in fields such as literature, religious studies, history, and other humanities disciplines. Ivanhoe facilitates the imaginative use of electronic archives and online resources in combination with traditional text-based and visual research materials. The game's rules and conditions are adjustable to different player levels and interests, from secondary school classes to advanced projects undertaken by established scholars."

Introduction

Welcome to the home page of MetaCombine, a Mellon-funded project hosted at Emory University. MetaCombine is a part of Emory's MetaScholar Initiative. The goal of MetaCombine is to experiment with methods to more meaningfully combine digital library resources and services, and, whenever possible, demonstrate the deployment of these methods. Below is an overview based on the initial project proposal to Mellon. Overview July 2003 Executive Summary Emory University seeks to conduct practical experimentation with improved techniques for organization and access to scholarly information via the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) as well as the World Wide Web. Through the proposed project, Emory will explore combinations of information and services at various levels of abstraction: combined search of OAI and Web resources, combined semantic clusters of information, and combined digital library components acting as a whole. Hence, the project name: MetaCombine.

Key Points

1) The MetaCombine project will assess the effectiveness of several specific semantic clustering techniques (see glossary for a description of this approach to information organization) for improving organization and access to bodies of metadata exposed via the OAI-PMH as well as Web resources. The focus will be on two prominent techniques: the support vector machine (SVM) class of algorithms and multidimensional scaling (MDS) visualization (see glossary for an overview of these methodologies).

"During the past two years, a team of computer scientists and programmers at NITLE has developed a prototype of the NITLE Semantic Engine (NSE). This prototype was designed to address the universal problem of accessing and organizing large amounts of unstructured digital text. Using mathematical algorithms to index the latent semantic content of documents, the prototype engine has been demonstrated to drastically reduce, if not eliminate, the need for expensive and time-consuming metadata tagging, and to produce results superior to keyword searches in limited test domains.


The NITLE Semantic Engine (NSE) is at the center of NITLE's research and development mission. It is designed to enable scholars and educators to manage the already overwhelming and ever-increasing volume of data that we encounter in every field of inquiry. NITLE plans to develop a set of tools that will enable researchers to quickly search large datasets that may be distributed across multiple databases, to interact with the engine to refine the search, and to contribute their knowledge to the collection. We also plan to devise a set of visualization and archiving tools for the researcher to use, to facilitate the organization and dissemination of the search results."

Media Matrix is a server side application that works within web browsers, using the browser's bookmark feature. When users find a digital object at a digital library or while surfing the Internet, they simply click the Media Matrix bookmark and it searches through the page, finds the digital media, and loads it into an editor. The users can then isolate any portion of a whole video or audio clip and segment it, resize and crop images, save text, and add their own annotations to that media. Using Media Matrix, teachers can collect and present media for the classroom, students can integrate media into their assignments, and scholars can perform the kinds of tasks performed in traditional libraries with analog objects (gather resources, take notes, publish findings)."

    "The University of Michigan, Indiana University, MIT, Stanford, and the uPortal consortium are joining forces to integrate and synchronize their considerable educational software into a pre-integrated collection of open source tools.  This will yield three big wins for sustainable economics and innovation in higher education:
    • A  framework that builds on the recently ratified JSR 168 portlet standard and the OKI open service interface definitions to create a services-based, enterprise portal for tool delivery
    • A re-factored set of educational software tools that blends the best of features from the participants’ disparate software (e.g., course management systems, assessment tools, workflow, etc.)
    • A synchronization of the institutional clocks of these schools in developing, adopting and using a common set of open source software.

    The products of this project will include an Enterprise Services-based Portal, a complete Course Management System with sophisticated assessment tools, a Research Support Collaboration System, a Workflow Engine, and a Technology Portability Profile as a clear standard for writing future tools that can extend this core set of educational applications.

    The modular, pre-integrated tools will greatly reduce the implementation costs of one or more of these tools at any institution.  The Sakai Project Core universities are committing over $2 million per year to launch and support this two year project.  The core universities are also committed to implementing these tools at their own institutions starting in Fall 2004 through the duration of the project.  The commitment of resources and adoption is purposefully set on an aggressive timeline to swiftly integrate and synchronize the educational software at the core institutions.   This effort will demonstrate the compelling economics of “software code mobility” for higher education, and it will provide a clear roadmap for others to become part of an open source community."

    "The University of Michigan, Indiana University, MIT, Stanford, and the uPortal consortium are joining forces to integrate and synchronize their considerable educational software into a pre-integrated collection of open source tools.  This will yield three big wins for sustainable economics and innovation in higher education:
    • A  framework that builds on the recently ratified JSR 168 portlet standard and the OKI open service interface definitions to create a services-based, enterprise portal for tool delivery
    • A re-factored set of educational software tools that blends the best of features from the participants’ disparate software (e.g., course management systems, assessment tools, workflow, etc.)
    • A synchronization of the institutional clocks of these schools in developing, adopting and using a common set of open source software.

    The products of this project will include an Enterprise Services-based Portal, a complete Course Management System with sophisticated assessment tools, a Research Support Collaboration System, a Workflow Engine, and a Technology Portability Profile as a clear standard for writing future tools that can extend this core set of educational applications.

    The modular, pre-integrated tools will greatly reduce the implementation costs of one or more of these tools at any institution.  The Sakai Project Core universities are committing over $2 million per year to launch and support this two year project.  The core universities are also committed to implementing these tools at their own institutions starting in Fall 2004 through the duration of the project.  The commitment of resources and adoption is purposefully set on an aggressive timeline to swiftly integrate and synchronize the educational software at the core institutions.   This effort will demonstrate the compelling economics of “software code mobility” for higher education, and it will provide a clear roadmap for others to become part of an open source community."

    project seeks to translate commonplace teacher practices into the digital realm so that teachers can more easily integrate into teaching the digital cultural objects available from museums and libraries.

    "The University of Michigan, Indiana University, MIT, Stanford, and the uPortal consortium are joining forces to integrate and synchronize their considerable educational software into a pre-integrated collection of open source tools.  This will yield three big wins for sustainable economics and innovation in higher education:
    • A  framework that builds on the recently ratified JSR 168 portlet standard and the OKI open service interface definitions to create a services-based, enterprise portal for tool delivery
    • A re-factored set of educational software tools that blends the best of features from the participants’ disparate software (e.g., course management systems, assessment tools, workflow, etc.)
    • A synchronization of the institutional clocks of these schools in developing, adopting and using a common set of open source software.

    The products of this project will include an Enterprise Services-based Portal, a complete Course Management System with sophisticated assessment tools, a Research Support Collaboration System, a Workflow Engine, and a Technology Portability Profile as a clear standard for writing future tools that can extend this core set of educational applications.

    The modular, pre-integrated tools will greatly reduce the implementation costs of one or more of these tools at any institution.  The Sakai Project Core universities are committing over $2 million per year to launch and support this two year project.  The core universities are also committed to implementing these tools at their own institutions starting in Fall 2004 through the duration of the project.  The commitment of resources and adoption is purposefully set on an aggressive timeline to swiftly integrate and synchronize the educational software at the core institutions.   This effort will demonstrate the compelling economics of “software code mobility” for higher education, and it will provide a clear roadmap for others to become part of an open source community."

    project seeks to translate commonplace teacher practices into the digital realm so that teachers can more easily integrate into teaching the digital cultural objects available from museums and libraries. We seek to do this not only for individual teachers but for groups of teachers and/or content and collection experts working together to create curriculum resources. Early versions of the IU's "Scholar's Box" tool already demonstrate the promise for faculty, students, and the public to create, manipulate, annotate, and share personal collections of digital cultural objects gathered from multiple digital repositories. The IU is building both a Scholar's Box tool as well as an abstraction framework that defines functionality and APIs for other possible implementations."

    http://www.futureofthebook.org/tool/tk4/ Building on the TK3 model, the institute has begun work on an entirely new set of authoring tools, retaining the proven assets of the current version, but in many ways starting from scratch. The new program, SOPHIE, will offer greater flexibility and a host of powerful new capabilities not available in TK3. Most significantly, its file structure will be open, unlike TK3, which operated on a proprietary model - closed to the outside and non-extensible.

    As in TK3, a completed SOPHIE book can be distributed on discrete media such as thumb drives, DVD or CD-ROM, or downloaded from the Internet. Unlike TK3, SOPHIE will allow books to be streamed over the Internet, and eventually, to be accessed directly through the plug-in architecture of a web browser. SOPHIE will contain the same (though improved) drag-and-drop media assembly system developed in TK3, the same reader mark-up capabilities, as well as integrated true-type fonts and style sheets unavailable in the current version.

    The user will be able to enter text and build simple graphic elements directly in the document; import images, video, or sound from multiple sources; and create time-based annotations that will allow a text window or illustration to open at a specified moment. More sophisticated users will be able to arrange the materials in much more complex ways - for example, by making a film or piece of music the "spine" of the book, and then annotating the presentation with text or other media types. Most important, SOPHIE will be completely open-source, with the expectation that users will add to it and improve upon it.

    The target of the project is higher education, with the intent that the SOPHIE system will be fully integrated into the digital infrastructure currently being developed under the auspices of the Mellon Foundation's programs in Research in Information Technology and Scholarly Communications. As low-cost, low-weight, high-resolution, tablet-like computing devices become widely available, reading on a screen will become as comfortable as reading from a printed book. Once it is possible for students and teachers to produce electronic documents that are as easy to use as printed books, paper will have few advantages over electronic media, and the switch to digital will be rapid and decisive.

    "The project provides a means of coordinating and navigating disparate historical materials on the internet. It includes

    • an XML schema for historical events which describes the events' participants, dates, location and keywords; the schema associates these with source materials in print or on the web.
    • XSLT stylesheets that combine conforming documents and generate lists, maps and graphical timelines out of them."
    is an online visualization of objects from the collections of the Smithsonian's , is capable of analyzing multidimensional, multi-variate image data and allows the user to interact with the data. The environment also provides histogram, image ranking, image statistics, correlation matching, image thresholding, and isodata clustering. The tool handles multiple file formats such as jpg, gif, tif, pgm, ppm, and lan, and can handle combination bands from several image data sources. In addition, this environment offers a new image file format .iip (multi-band image with interleaved pixels) that can be displayed inside the tool or in your favorite web browser. Especially notable about the iip format is it's capacity for handling all possible datatypes (byte, short, integer, long, float, double). The images at right illustrate an integrated application and interface currently being developed by ALG that will process and analyze microarray image data. This effort takes already developed I2K technology and merges it into a single, unified interface."
    

    's goal is to explore and expand the potential of information technology as a tool for humanities research. To that end, we provide our Fellows with consulting, technical support, applications programming, and networked publishing facilities. We also cultivate partnerships and participate in humanities computing initiatives with libraries, publishers, information technology companies, scholarly organizations, and others interested in the intersection of computers and cultural heritage."

    The application itself involves a server and a client program, and allows basic submission and collection of human rights violation reports in plain text format, along with attached documents or images. The data structure is very simple, but the distinguishing aspect of this application is the level of security afforded to users - data transmission is encrypted to ensure the privacy of sensitive reports, and the open source nature of the software makes clear that no user data is captured.

    (patent pending): an online tool that allows students and educators to find, segment, annotate and organize streaming media found on the Internet. Media Matrix is a server side application that works within web browsers, using the browser's bookmark feature. When users find a digital object at a digital library or while surfing the Internet, they simply click the Media Matrix bookmark and it searches through the page, finds the digital media, and loads it into an editor. The users can then isolate any portion of a whole video or audio clip and segment it, resize and crop images, save text, and add their own annotations to that media. Using Media Matrix, teachers can collect and present media for the classroom, students can integrate media into their assignments, and scholars can perform the kinds of tasks performed in traditional libraries with analog objects (gather resources, take notes, publish findings)."

    "Over the past ten years a growing body of digital scholarly work has been undertaken, much of it put online, nearly all of it executed without peer review processes, none of it integrated (except by hyperlinking). NINES is a project to found a publishing environment for integrated, peer-reviewed online scholarship centered in nineteenth-century studies, British and American."
    is a qualitative research software tool developed by :
    
  • Import, create and edit rich text documents.
  • Code or annotate any text.
  • Link project documents to pictures, video and websites.
  • Show, search and assess relationships of text, coding and attributes.
  • Create graphical models which are linked live to your data. (NITLE) was established in September, 2001, through a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, to serve as a catalyst for innovation and collaboration for national liberal arts colleges as they seek to make effective use of technology. NITLE works with three regional technology centers to develop an integrated set of programs and projects that enhance teaching, learning, scholarship, and information management for 81 colleges. is a project to found a publishing environment for integrated, peer-reviewed online scholarship centered in nineteenth- century studies, British and American. A coordinated group of editorial boards that will oversee the work, which will include various kinds of content: traditional texts and documents—editions, critical works of all kinds—as well as "born-digital" works that relate to all aspects of nineteenth-century culture. NINES will be a model and WORKING example for scholarship that takes full advantage of digitization resources and internet access and connectivity. It will provide scholars with a suite of tools for producing XML materials—all the materials published under NINES auspices to be uniformly coded. The tools will include (and encourage) purely digital interpretive mechanisms for scholars who want to push and explore computerization toward new kinds and modes of scholarship and interpretation." (From ) The New Media Consortium (NMC) is an international 501(c)3 not-for-profit consortium of nearly 200 leading colleges, universities, and museums dedicated to the exploration and use of new media and new technologies. NMC member institutions are found in almost every state in the US, across Canada, and in Europe, Latin America, and Japan. Among the membership are many of the most highly regarded institutions in North America, as well as the country's leading state research universities, the nation's most outstanding community colleges, and a growing list of innovative museums. The consortium, one of the most active in higher education, serves as a catalyst for the development of new applications of technology to support learning and creative expression, and sponsors programs and activities designed to stimulate innovation, encourage collaboration, and recognize excellence among its member institutions. Through its many projects, its comprehensive web site, and its series of international conferences the NMC stimulates dialog and understanding through the exploration of promising ideas, technologies, and applications. (OCS) is a free Web publishing tool that will create a complete Web presence for your scholarly conference. It has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project at the University of British Columbia to improve the scholarly and public quality of research online. OCS will allow you to: * create a conference Web site * compose and send a call for papers * electronically accept paper and abstract submissions * allow paper submitters to edit their work * post conference proceedings and papers in a searchable format * post, if you wish, the original data sets * register participants * integrate post-conference online discussions (OJS) is a journal management and publishing system that has been developed by the Public Knowledge Project through its federally funded efforts to expand and improve access to research. OJS assists with every stage of the refereed publishing process, from submissions through to online publication and indexing. Through its management systems, its finely grained indexing of research, and the context it provides for research, OJS seeks to improve both the scholarly and public quality of referred research. OJS is open source software made freely available to journals worldwide for the purpose of making open access publishing a viable option for more journals, as open access can increase a journal's readership as well as its contribution to the public good on a global scale. ] The primaryAccess Initiative, a web-based system designed specifically for K-12 student and teachers, is based at the Center for Technology and Teacher Education at Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia. primaryAccess offers students and teachers the opportunity to use primary source documents to create digital movies (historical narratives) that provide a compelling and meaningful learning experience. The act of producing the narrative provides a strong active learning experience, in which the learner must research the topic, actively construct meaning from the primary documents available, craft a written story that conveys that understanding to others, and finally, create a movie that uses the documents to accompany the narration in a visually compelling manner. ] - from QSR International's "Formed in 1994, privately owned QSR International is the world's largest qualitative research software company, with hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide.

Mellon Foundation.  The project is producing open source Collaboration and Learning Environment (CLE) software with the first release in July 2004.  The Sakai Educational Partners' Program (SEPP) extends this community source project to other academic institutions around the world, and is supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and SEPP member contributions."
    "The University of Michigan, Indiana University, MIT, Stanford, and the uPortal consortium are joining forces to integrate and synchronize their considerable educational software into a pre-integrated collection of open source tools.  This will yield three big wins for sustainable economics and innovation in higher education:
    • A  framework that builds on the recently ratified JSR 168 portlet standard and the OKI open service interface definitions to create a services-based, enterprise portal for tool delivery
    • A re-factored set of educational software tools that blends the best of features from the participants’ disparate software (e.g., course management systems, assessment tools, workflow, etc.)
    • A synchronization of the institutional clocks of these schools in developing, adopting and using a common set of open source software.

    The products of this project will include an Enterprise Services-based Portal, a complete Course Management System with sophisticated assessment tools, a Research Support Collaboration System, a Workflow Engine, and a Technology Portability Profile as a clear standard for writing future tools that can extend this core set of educational applications.

    The modular, pre-integrated tools will greatly reduce the implementation costs of one or more of these tools at any institution.  The Sakai Project Core universities are committing over $2 million per year to launch and support this two year project.  The core universities are also committed to implementing these tools at their own institutions starting in Fall 2004 through the duration of the project.  The commitment of resources and adoption is purposefully set on an aggressive timeline to swiftly integrate and synchronize the educational software at the core institutions.   This effort will demonstrate the compelling economics of “software code mobility” for higher education, and it will provide a clear roadmap for others to become part of an open source community."

    project seeks to translate commonplace teacher practices into the digital realm so that teachers can more easily integrate into teaching the digital cultural objects available from museums and libraries. We seek to do this not only for individual teachers but for groups of teachers and/or content and collection experts working together to create curriculum resources. Early versions of the IU's "Scholar's Box" tool already demonstrate the promise for faculty, students, and the public to create, manipulate, annotate, and share personal collections of digital cultural objects gathered from multiple digital repositories. The IU is building both a Scholar's Box tool as well as an abstraction framework that defines functionality and APIs for other possible implementations."
