Take Back the Archive -- Drawing on research by Sadler and Bourg (2013), Olsen (2002; 2007), Reucker et. al. (2011) and others, this project update demonstrates working solutions for "rich prospect" and "generous" interfaces that also consider respectful representations of survivors of sexual violence. Imperative to the success of our project is the need to attend to the collection and presentation of our materials in ways that advocate for rape survivors and challenge a community of complacency and ignorance. Presenters: Purdom Linblad (University of Virginia) Co-author: Jeremy Boggs (University of Virginia). College Women: A Collaborative Cross-Institutional Archives Portal. -- Institutions are collaborating in order to pool resources as well as create new ways to discover collections through innovative digital scholarship projects. The College Women: Documenting the History of Women In Higher Education project brings together the extensive collections of letters, diaries, and scrapbooks created by students at the "Seven Sisters" colleges in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and now held by Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Smith, Vassar, and Wellesley Colleges, and the Schlesinger Library, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard. Our project update will examine our one-year pilot project process as well as next steps. Presenters: Rachel Appel (Bryn Mawr College), Joanna DiPasquale (Vassar College), Monica Mercado (Bryn Mawr College). Connecting Users and IRs: Personal Archiving via Zotero -- This project update shares forthcoming Zotero enhancements that will allow users to connect with their institutional repository (IR) and self-archive materials from within the Zotero interface. This functionality is currently being tested at Penn State University, and will be open source and available to other institutions employing Hydra-based IRs. The project is aimed towards bringing self-archiving into the user's personal workflow, as well as connecting the local IR with citation management software. Presenters: Ellysa Cahoy (Penn State University), Smiljana Antonijevic (Penn State University), Dawn Childress (University of California, Los Angeles)
