DH 2018

From the Presidential election to the World Cup watch parties, it was an electrifying time to be in downtown Mexico City for DH2018. SUP’s digital publishing initiative was well-represented at the week-long conference, sending our Acquisitions Editor, Digital Production Associate, and Sales and Exhibits Manager. Our group demoed several of our digital publications, including the

¡Hola, Digital Humanities!

The supDigital team is at DH2018 in Mexico City this week, catching up with friends and colleagues and meeting lots of new ones. If you’re here come say hi! We’re at the table at the top of the stairs above registration. You’re welcome to stop by and check out our latest interactive publications making waves

Announcing Release of New Digital Project

We are pleased to announce the publication of our newest digital project: When Melodies Gather by Samuel Liebhaber. With over sixty audio and video recordings of poems in the Southern Arabian language of Mahri, this project lets you dive in and experience the practice of crafting poetry in an unwritten language.

JCDL 2018

I’ve spent this week in Fort Worth, Texas at the Joint Conference of Digital Libraries. It’s a conference that brings together a somewhat surprisingly diverse set of people, from academics, to computer scientists, to web archivists, to, (of course) librarians.

A Symposium of Our Own

It will be another week before we can fully process and report out on what was a truly informative and productive last few days.

While the program has yet to be released, we are excited to be part of what promises to be a dynamic and productive conversation. The conference will take place in Wellington,

Migration is the New Transmittal

You could even imagine it as a very wide line, with a transparency setting of 35% or so (for all the graphic designers out there), that sits

supDigital Goes to LDCX 2018

Last week I attended LDCX at Stanford University. Though the conference prides itself on the multiple interpretations of the abbreviation, it has in the past stood for “Library Developer Conference fill-in-your-own-X.” The L has grown to include the whole community of libraries, museums, galleries, and archives—essentially anyone tasked with the stewardship of cultural artifacts and

Progress in Archiving

Progress continues on accessioning and depositing our first publication’s archive into our Stanford Library’s digital repository. While the project still lives in its original format online after its initial release almost two years ago, it’s never too soon to start safeguarding against the inevitability of digital decay. In fact, there’s a lot to be said
