Announcement: Off the Map Gothic – British Library’s “Off the Map” Competition Underway

Digital Humanities Now - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 13:00

We all know that vampires don’t exist and that there are no malevolent beings of Carpathian origin walking the streets of London, Nottingham or Whitby. Don’t we. One of the really powerful aspects of Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel ‘Dracula’ is how it creates the impression of authenticity, partially through how it is told (through diaries and news reports), partially through the novel’s setting in authentically real places.

The second year of the British Library’s ‘Off the Map’ competition is now well underway. In conjunction with gaming festival Gamecity and publisher Crytek, the student competition to create virtual gaming environments out of British Library collection items ties in with the major exhibition ‘Terror and Wonder: the Gothic Imagination’ which will open in October 2014.

Resource: RDFa Introduction and Codelabs for Libraries

Digital Humanities Now - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 12:30

My RDFa introduction and codelab materials for the ALA 2014 preconference on Practical linked data with open source are now online!

And now I’ve finished leading the RDFa + codelab that I’ve been stressing over and refining for about a month at the American Library Association annual conference Practical linked data with open source preconference. Long story short, most people got about as far as I expected (part-way through the first exercise), but they all got through the initial hurdles and learned enough to keep learning on their own.
