Continuing the Conversation at SSP

With the IIPC panel still fresh in our minds, we’re looking forward to another opportunity to share our work, this time with a group a little less focused, perhaps, on digital preservation, but widely experienced in typical and emerging workflows for publishing. We learned last week that a proposed panel, organized by CLOCKSS’s Craig van

Granular Web Archiving at IIPC

As is pretty clear by now, we’re spending a lot of time and energy in the pursuit of ensuring the digital work we’re publishing at SUP is just as long-lived as a typical scholarly monograph. We’ve zeroed in on three approaches, and the one that has been most successful so far is web archiving. So

Paradigm Shift at IIPC

“We are facing an archival moment” said Lorraine Daston recently in her talk “Big Science, Big Humanities and the Archives of the Year 3000”. The unease and uncertainty of this moment was palpable at the IIPC Web Archiving Conference in Wellington earlier this month. Web archiving is consumed with capturing content that is ever-changing, served

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

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. But despite its title, a show of hands at the first keynote indicated that only

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. Over the past several weeks we’ve been organizing and planning for the Preservation at Stanford University Press Workshop which was held May 14-15 at Stanford University. We brought together many of

IIPC Panel Accepted

The IIPC has accepted a panel proposed by Jasmine Mulliken, Anna Perricci, and Sumitra Duncan for inclusion in its 2018 Web Archiving Conference program. 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,

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
