Text Encoding

Compleat Cook Icon

This proof of concept project took a recipe book from FSU's Digital Library and encoded it using a customization of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines for markup. Sarah Stanley generated a customized schema which allowed her to markup ingredients, with their regularized measurements and ingredient names. She then used XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations) to convert the TEI to HTML and generate modernized ingredient lists. You can see the TEI transcription, XSLT, schema, and CSS here.

Spatial Humanities

WikiStubs Map Icon

For the Launch of the Caribes project, DRS ran a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon on the Caribbean. In preparation for this event, Sarah Stanley created a map of all of the Wikipedia stubs under the topic of "Caribbean buildings and structures" (the list was generated on April 16, 2016). This map was used to visualize the areas that were the least represented on Wikipedia. You can read more about mapping as a humanities methods and the Wikipedia edit-a-thon here.

Network visualization

A network visualization of the FSU Digital Scholarship Network

Digital Scholarship is currently being conducted in several department's across FSU's campus. This sometimes makes it hard to get a sense of who is actually involved in different digital scholarship activities. To bring all of these different participants together, members of DRS created a network visualization of all of the people, projects, and places that were involved in digital scholarship on campus. You can read more about the process and see the component parts here.

Digital Publishing

The Mildred and Pepper Collection not only documents the career of one of the most politically active individuals of this century, but also reflects the changes that have taken place in every area of American life. The collection contains over two million pages consisting of Mildred and Claude Pepper’s official and personal documents. Bonnie Santos compiled content from the collection into an online, interactive Scalar book to exhibit publishing digital objects held in special collections.
