  • It has a nice feature which they call a ‘lightbox’ to view the images. Looks quite professional.

    • 1. The digitisation of Main Incidents in the married Life of Hermann Georg Fiedler and Ethel Mary Fiedler By Chloe Dash, Taylor Institution Library
    • 2. Project aims
      • The aim of the project was to digitize Fiedler’s wife’s diary and make the images available online.
      • I felt that it was important to make the images accessible to researchers and anyone interested in Fiedler.
    • 3. Who is Fiedler?
    • 4. Hermann Georg Fiedler (1862-1945) born in Zittau, Germany, was a German scholar renowned for his efforts to promote a strong intercultural relationship between Germany and Britain.
      • He played a major part in the founding of Birmingham University and the formation of the school of modern languages at Birmingham in 1903.
      • He also played a leading role in the establishment of the honour school of modern languages at Oxford.
      • Dedicated to the improvement of the Taylor Institution Library and supervised the building of the Taylor extension, which includes what is now the Modern Languages Library.
      • Fiedler married his former pupil Ethel Mary (1870/71-1933) in 1899. He and his wife had two daughters, Herma (b. 1902) and Beryl (b.1913). The death of Beryl on 2nd May 1920 caused a period of severe depression for Ethel, which continued until her death in 1933.
      • After Fiedler’s death, his surviving daughter, Herma, gave her father's fine collection to the library together with funds for further purchases in German.
    • 5. ..and why am I digitizing his wife’s diary?
      • Not only does the diary document Fiedler’s academic life in Oxford and Birmingham, it also provides an insight into a number of interesting subjects, such as Fiedler’s musical background, Anglo-German relations and the changing role of women in academia.
    • 6.  
    • 7. Method…
      • I photographed the entire contents of the diary using my own camera (a Canon 550D) and the photography stand in the Sackler Library.
    • 8.
      • I then cropped and rotated the images using Microsoft Picture Manager and ensured that they were in the correct order.
    • 9.
      • After that, I made a Flickr page for the Taylor Institution and uploaded the content.

    • 13. Archives Hub
      • A high-profile cross-searching service.
      • The basic keyword search provides a simple approach to searching.
      • Archives Hub receives in excess of 50,000 searches a month.
    • 14. I created an Archives Hub description using their online EAD editor….
    • 15.  
    • 16. … my description is now live!
    • 17. Next steps…
      • Add descriptions to each diary entry, detailing notable people, places and events which take place.
      • Look into further ideas for promotion.
      • Uploading further images on to flickr.
      • As a long term aim, I hope to create a website to host the diary, similar to the Department of Politics’ ‘William Godwin’s Diary’ project…
