The Power of the Crowd: Collecting and Describing Images of Public Art

As part of the "Public Art, Identity, and Space" event series celebrating the CCDL's "Murals of Northern Ireland" collection, the Claremont Colleges Library is hosting an interactive workshop led by CCL librarians and special guests. The workshop will be held on Thursday, October 6, from 2-4pm in the library's new Collaborative Commons. Participants will have the opportunity to work directly with images from the collection or capture images from around the Colleges using equipment from the Digital Tool Shed.

There will be an introduction by our guest speaker Tony Crowley, Professor of English Language at the University of Leeds, and Allegra Swift, CCL Scholarly Communication & Publishing Coordinator, for an understanding of digital collecting, the power of metadata, and the value-add of open access.

Participants can select a group for a hands-on Digital Humanities experience:

Northern Ireland Murals: Tony, Allegra, and Digital Scholarship Coordinator Ashley Sanders will guide the group to work directly with describing these images and sharing them in a project that will kick off at the workshop for ongoing crowdsourced metadata.

Pomona Walker Wall: Digital Scholarship Fellow Ramya Mukund will lead a group to the Walker Wall to work with new images and metadata capture.

Pitzer murals: GIS Specialist Warren Roberts will bring a group to the Pitzer murals and then back to the library so the group will gain hands-on experience with image capture, GIS data considerations, and other metadata issues.
