Presentation 1
Treading into Alien Territory: Area 33-1/3 Digitized Vinyl Collection
The University of Nevada, Reno had a disorganized and uncataloged legacy collection of vinyl records. The project team selected unique and interesting materials for digitizing and streaming using CONTENTdm to provide access and metadata. Phase two of the program is underway to significantly improve the user streaming experience.
Presenters: Amy Hunsaker, Maggie Ressel

Presentation 2
Snapshot - A Coal Miner’s History: Mapping Digitized Audio Interviews
Leveraging skills we developed in an earlier mapping project, the library at Vancouver Island University is using digitized audio recordings to map the spoken word in the form of conversations about coal mines from the years 1900 – 1945 in and around the city of Nanaimo, British Columbia.
Presenter: Daniel Sifton

Presentation 3
Snapshot - How open source tools in use by libraries, archives and museums are evolving towards sustainable research infrastructures for Digital Humanities and Social Sciences
At the University of Leuven several humanities projects started using CollectiveAccess and Omeka as part of their research infrastructure. These projects demonstrate that both open source tools can be successfully deployed in research projects and have the potential to grow further in the domain of Digital Humanities.
