Integrating Libraries and Electronic PublishingThe DART Project at Columbia University
David Millman and Kate Wittenberg
Educational MissionTo help undergraduate students gain insight into the way in which anthropologists conduct research and draw conclusionsImprove information literacy of undergraduate anthropology students through use of structured yet unfiltered digital resources
E-Publishing MissionTo develop a digital library infrastructure that will store digital resources so that they can be used in flexible waysTo catalogue digital assets embedded within complex learning tools so that they can be used for broader research and/or teaching goals
Case 1:The Ethnographic ImaginationThe teaching module contains a digitized selection of authors field notes and published bookStudents read both sets of materials and write about the process of transforming the notes into an ethnographyIncreasing understanding of how knowledge is created from data
Case 2: Intro to South Asian CultureOnline syllabus that links to catalogued digital assets (primary texts, maps, photos, video)Teacher builds class assignments around these assets (response to questions, essays on readings, and full research paper)Increasing levels of interaction with library materials throughout the semester
Digital Teaching Tools and Research Library ResourcesFocus on the relationship between the closed world of the classroom and teaching tools, and the open world of the WebCan students explore freely the vast array of research tools available through the Web, while still having an appropriate level of guidance concerning how to select and evaluate the sources that they find?
Unlimited Information as Benefit or Obstacle to LearningHow do we make information meaningful to users with diverse skills and needs?Future work will explore how to find the right balance between directed and unfiltered presentation of digital teaching and research materials in electronic publications
