Using Digital Images in Online Teaching Presented by: Carey Hatch Assistant Provost for Library and Information Services
Licensing We will work with the SUNY Contracts office to establish University-wide contracts with favorable terms –AP Multimedia Archive – available now, SUNY-wide –ARTstor – available now, 35 campuses –Others to follow Saskia, Davis, Archivision, Hartill, Corbis, etc.
Technology Infrastructure SUNY will need to produce images for use in the class room SUNY can establish mechanisms for campuses to share images and reduce duplication of effort SUNY will need to adopt a variety of standards to implement a U-wide solution
Technology Infrastructure Tools for cataloging, storage and retrieval should be separated from tools for classroom use (online or traditional) Tools for online and in class instruction will be evolving over the next several years – this will be a dynamic environment
Technology Infrastructure Where we are now –Dspace is now in production at http://dspace.sunyconnect.suny.edu Testing use with images –Harvester is being tested (Open Source – Public Knowledge Project) –UB and Stony Brook are using ContentDM (OAI compliant)
Governance We are establishing a team to oversee our digital repository (images, PDFs, data sets, audio, etc.) –Approve campus contributions/collections –Establish workgroups to recommend specific standards –Approve/adopt standard, policies and best practices
Governance While overall planning is taking place we’re laying the groundwork for image standards –A meeting to discuss image standards is being held on March 21. Participants include 2 librarians, a slide curator and a faculty member. UBdigit already has many standards defined –Additional teams will need to be established
Conclusion We will create a technology environment that will allow us to easily share images across the SUNY system Creating an environment to allow for the images from a variety of sources to be easily included in teaching and learning environment will require additional effort.
