Take a look at what we’re doing for Open Access Week at IU (Oct. 21-25).
Some good points on libraries as publishers, arguing that the academic publishing system isn’t broken; it’s just that we want more control.
Bill Endres of Kentucky University has released Manuscripts of Lichfield Cathedral, a beautiful beta version of 3D images of St Chad Gospels and Wycliffe New Testament, with great functionalities. Just hold down the alt key, left-click the mouse and drag it so that the cursor location becomes the point around which the page rotates [haven’t tried touch screen yet]. It’s like you’re there!
Paleographers can annotate images and generate unique URLs, instructors can interactively share medieval material culture with students, and historians and DHers can nerd out! The possibilities are endless.
