Oct 4 - Goings on in the DML and across the BGC's Digital realms

posted on 04 Oct 2010 18:53 by BGC DML


This is the first post of what will be an ongoing series of postings regarding things going on in the DML. I will be writing about the various workshops, projects, and events that will be going on, as well as posting links and information that are relevant to the BGC and DML.

For instance, tomorrow October 5th in the DML from 2-4pm, Terrance D'Ambrosino, Asst. Coordinator of VMR, will be giving a workshop on Scanning and Photoshop. Terrance will be discussing how to get the best results when using BGC scanners and how to touch-up, crop, and resize your images once you have opened them in Photoshop. Interested individuals should email Terrance at ude.drab.cgb|onisorbmad#ude.drab.cgb|onisorbmad. More workshops in Powerpoint, Zotero and other tools and techniques will continue throughout the semester and you should consult the Workshops page for more information.

In addition to curricular related events in the DML, I will also be using this space to post about the various digital initiatives that are going on around the DML. The digital has become an important part of almost everything going on at the BGC and with special projects in academic programs, publishing, and exhibitions there will be a lot to share in the near future.

You can follow these posts either by watching this page using the site-watching tools at the bottom of the page or by using the RSS feed and following the stream in your preferred RSS reader (such as Google Reader or Mac Mail).

Please feel free to contact me with any questions and I look forward to keeping everyone abreast about the 1's and 0's of the BGC.

Happy Birthday Internet!!

The Internet

In October 1969 the first message was sent over ARPANET, the earliest incarnation of the Internet. That makes the Internet 40 today!! It is kind of amazing to think of all the knowledge that gets passed through the Internet today. I imagine that back in ‘69 the creators of the Internet could never have guessed at the explosion of technology and information services that has occurred over the last forty years. The DML is only a little over two months old, I wonder where we will stand forty years from now?

Early Spring Workshops and DML Salon

posted on 25 Mar 2010 16:02 by BGC DML

Spring is upon us even though it is below freezing out. Putting that bit of climate commentary aside I wanted to announce some up upcoming events. First of all workshops. Courses this semester are again using the Wordpress blogs and Wikidot wikis so we will be offering workshops in both tools. Times and dates are below. In addition, I will be offering another Filemaker Pro/Database Design two-part workshop in early February. We tried this at the end of last semester but everyone was a tad too busy so we are going to do it again. You should have received an email with all of this information but please contact me with any questions (ude.drab.cgb|sadimarek#ude.drab.cgb|sadimarek).

Finally, we will be hosting a DML Salon in the large lecture hall and DML on January 19th from 2-4. Faculty and students will be discussing their work in the DML and some of the project work will be shown. Included will be work from Catherine Whalen’s American Material Culture Studies class, Google Sketchup gallery virtualizations from Deborah Krohn’s Exhibition Experience course, Omeka virtual exhibits from David Jaffee’s Material Culture of New York course, and the wiki from Aaron Glass’s Objects of Exchange exhibition. This will give everyone a chance to see the good work done in the classes and for people who haven’t gotten a chance to work in the DML yet to see what it is all about. Hope to see you all there.
