Can leave out of intro if showing SS commons live. Mention some of these details in visual cloud slide. Users managing content in Shared Shelf may also make their content available to the public in Shared Shelf Commons –an more basic version of ARTstor Workspace that allows users to search, browse, view, download and share content via URLs. -Colby College, U of Delaware, Cornell are first institutions to dip their toes in the water and their collections are now available- Shared Shelf Commons content is currenly not made available within the ARTstor Digital Library, but may be in the future. If collection managers want to make their local content available to internal users (at their institution alongside ADL content) as well as to public users on WWW, they can publish from Shared Shelf to both target collections.
The final collection I’d like to share with you today comes from NYU, and is a collection dedicated to NYU’s institute of fine arts’ archeological work in Abydos, Egypt. This is a fascinating collection and which serves a unique community of archeologists and anthropologists. In this case, the cloud-based and collaborative nature of Shared Shelf is imperative in the work of these archeologists and catalogers, who actually use Shared Shelf on the dig sites, so that they can document and catalog artifacts as they are discovered, and their work as it unfolds. Using Shared Shelf in this way is incredibly valuable for those working on this project, because it allows for the cataloger to be there, on the dig site, allowing a much greater understanding of the resources, and also an increased availability of resources, which become available on a daily basis to scholars and researchers in the states.
Another use case I’d like to share with you comes from University of Califonia, San Diego. UC San Diego has been using Shared Shelf to manage and expose a Zambian Storytellers Collection, which chronicles Professor Robert Cancel’s life-long field work documenting storytellers in Zambia. This collection is a great example of how Shared Shelf can support collaborative cataloging: professor Cancel works in shared shelf to enter extensive information into a description field, while librarians at UCSD complete the cataloging by adding keywords and other important metadata, resulting in an amazingly rich collection. One of the really nice things about Shared Shelf, is that it’s such a flexible platform which allows users to customize Shared Shelf’s cataloging tools to meet the needs of their collection. What we’re looking at here on this slide, is an example of a Shared Shelf cataloging screen, and you can see here, that UCSD has customized the metadata schema, and the different cataloging fields to meet the needs of this collection.
Now I’d like to shared with you a collaborative Shared Shelf project which is in development by the SUNY network of schools. The SUNY Innovative Instruction Space Repository is being re-branded FLEXspace: Flexible Learning Environments eXchange, and it is currently scheduled for general release in 2014. Essentially, Flexspace is a database of learning spaces and will showcase innovative design solutions, while acting as a non-commercial, peer-reviewed, open education resource to assist with the planning, building and support of learning environments designed for education. Flexspace will contain high quality still images, video and even code strings to assist with component integration. It’s a really exciting example of the collaborative potential for Shared Shelf and if you would like to know more, please head to the flexspace site, using the URL on the screen here.
