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

New and Improved

About this time last year, I began working on the Technical Guidelines for authors whose work we had accepted for publication.

Enchanting the Desert crosses a lot of boundaries, including those of discipline. Identified by the author as cultural geography, the project has now been reviewed by a professor of English (Audrey Goodman, Georgia State) in a venue for art and art history, CAA.Reviews. We encourage you to head on over to CAA.Reviews for the full

More on Web Archiving

A few weeks ago I posted an interview with Webrecorder’s Dragan Espenchied in which he detailed the features and uses of the web-archiving tool developed by Rhizome. A fellow Mellon-funded project, Webrecorder has been especially intriguing to us because it is perhaps the most specifically focused solution to providing readers of our web-based interactive scholarly
