Experts in Team, the Future in service of the past

A colorful palette of ideas of students projects was presented at the Gunnerus library yesterday. “Experts in team” is a master’s degree course in which students develop their interdisciplinary teamwork skills and allows them to prepare themselves for their working life. Village 9 worked during the spring semester with ideas on Digital dissemination of the past and discussed the possibilities and the limitations technology can offer as a tool. The idea was to work interdisciplinary and discuss the challenges technology poses around the lifespan and the documentation strategies of today’s digital data production that the Museum and Library section deals with. Creative ideas as to what would be the best strategy to structure and disseminate the metadata of archives and special collections in the future is a demanding and ongoing task for our library and suggestions from young professionals is a way to stay in tune with the current technological developments. At the same time, contact with the general public is the main factor for the development of new visualization tools and allows us to think new ways of approaching our users and their interests and achieve. For that, I must thank hashtag#NTNU IDI and my colleagues as well as the students that worked with great enthusiasm through the semester giving us the opportunity to experiment through this collaboration. I must also thank IDI professor Letizia Jacceri for mentoring and guiding me all these years through a number of collaborative projects. hashtag#eithashtag#technologyhashtag#interdisciplinary

Hands-on workshops for researchers and students!

1st and 2nd of November 2018

Introducing Research Practices and Tools for Digital Humanities.

Is technology going fast for you, would you like to be able to use a tool and visualise your research or manage your meta-data?

Join us

NTNU UB extends an invitation to scholars to join us in a Hands-on workshop 1.11.2018 13.30-15.30 with A.Rockenberger from the National Library of Norway

Writing And Publishing On The Web Together Using Github : a workshop on GitHub as a source of software, scripts, and programs. The workshop will concentrate on the various aspects as such:

*   GitHub can also be used to work on text documents?

*   GitHub enables collaboration on documents and software entirely through the web interface?

*   you can create a simple webpage with a few clicks through GitHub?

*   you don’t need any knowledge of the command-line version control tool ‘git’ to do all this?

This course will teach you how to do all these things, and more. The seminar is aimed at graduate students, researchers and librarians, and tailored towards those with very little to no experience in the subjects taught. Experience with git or GitHub or similar services is not necessary. Time permitting, at the end of the workshop those interested can learn how to do the same operations using command line ‘git’.

Participants: max. 15

Requirements: Bring your own laptop

Archives and libraries brought into the 21st century through interdisciplinary teamwork.

The value of working in interdisciplinary teams and projects was the main theme of theITS21 Conference in Trondheim organized by NTNU 20-21 of June 2018.

The NTNU University Library, (the Gunnerus branch) participated in one of the sessions focusing on how to develop the needed skills for interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation with a paper entitled :

“Archives and libraries brought into the 21st century through interdisciplinary teamwork.”

Libraries and archives as institutions of memory face a challenge when it comes to staying in tune with the demands that the development of technology poses on our society. In order to bring libraries and archives forwards to the digitalization current of the 21st century, I dare to say, one has to share and reflect upon workflows. The NTNU library in Trondheim has had a series of projects ( E-pensum, Mubil, Ark4) since 2012 in collaboration with national and international teams of special expertise in the field of Archive and Heritage education studies that has led to several insights on the subject.

I am working on an article on the subject and I am interested in reflections around the skills of communication in such environments! The hardest task, as it seems to me, and the one most needed for a successful collaboration is communication. It`s central not only because its is time consuming and difficult to establish among disciplines and individuals that have never worked together before; but it requires social intelligence.

Often in such projects when people meet to discuss an idea, there is already funding on the table, but the teams might new to each other and they bring not only expertise but their own personalities into the project. So the process of learning to work together is connected to a specific aim but one has to develop skills as to observe, listen, and be compassionate as a person and as a professional. The same issue appeared at annual Dariah meeting in Pariswhen we were talking about Digital Humanities and interdisciplinary work. Its seems to me that it is a recurrent theme, that of successful communication between the humanists and the IT designers and developers which is undercommunicated.

How can we grasp and define these processes, how can we learn and reflect on interdisciplinary communication skills in project and research design..

Just posing a question!
