Digital Library Brown Bag: Using Digital Video in Omeka: 8/29/2012
Greetings!  Please join us Wednesday, August 29 for the first digital library brown bag presentation of the Fall 2012 series by Will Cowan.  The presentation will be held at the Herman B Wells Library, E174,  from 12:00pm - 1:00pm.

Using Digital Video in Omeka: Development of a Video Segmentation and Annotation Plugin
- Will Cowan, Associate Director for Digital Library Software Development Digital Library Program

This presentation will showcase video segmentation and annotation functionality developed as a plugin to be used with Omeka, an open-source, exhibition software package.  The plugin was made possible by a start up grant from the NEH Office of Digital Humanities.  I will discuss two of the many potential functions this plugin provides for video in Omeka. 

First, it is able to represent interactive data on a timeline as videos play.  This functionality makes it possible to use this tool in the classroom in a variety of ways, from presentation of data to students to the creation of videos and annotations by the students. In addition, this functionality is ideal for presenting video segments and annotation on an Omeka website so that you don't have to present entire videos but just important segments.

Second, it is a tool that can be used for research, especially if it involves the representation of several streams of video.  In their book, The Maltese Touch of Evil: Film Noir and Potential Criticism, Richard Edwards and Shannon Scott Klute present the idea of an MTOE database, a collection of films noir that have been segmented and annotated and could be used to form the basis of new analyses of the genre.  How frequently and where do closeups occur in film noir?  How dark is film noir, really?  Do all men with guns wear hats in film noir?  By segmenting the video and setting up side by side displays, this type of analysis becomes possible and provides a means to address questions that are often based on a few specially chosen films as opposed to many films across the genre.  I will demo a preliminary version of this database using 20 public domain films noir and show how such an analysis could be done.

Presentation slides and audio will be available via the Connect Meeting Service (formerly known as "Breeze").  Go to http://breeze.iu.edu/diglib to view and listen to the presentation.  If you are not a registered user for Connect Meeting/Breeze, select the "Enter as a Guest" option.

The Digital Library Brown Bag series is held most Wednesdays this Fall 2012 semester.  All presentations are in the Herman B Wells Library, room E174, from 12:00pm - 1:00pm unless otherwise noted.  The complete schedule, including abstracts, is available on the Digital Library Program web site: http://www.dlib.indiana.edu/education/brownbags/

September Metadata Discussion Group Meeting
The first Metadata Discussion Group meeting of the new academic year will be on Tuesday, September 4 from 9:30am - 10:30am in the Wells Library, Room 043.  The Metadata Discussion Group meets monthly to discuss metadata issues pertaining to libraries, archives, and museums.  The group has no formal membership.  Library staff, SLIS faculty and students, and those on campus interested in the topic are welcome to attend.

In an attempt to gauge the magnitude of metadata work being done on campus, we'll be kicking off the new year with an info-sharing session, Metadata at IU Libraries.  Come and share brief stories of your current projects or research, or just come and listen.  We'll be in a room with a computer/projector/internet access, if you'd like to show something.

Bring a beverage -- donuts will be provided.

Date: Tuesday, September 4
Time: 9:30am - 10:30am
Place: Wells Library 043
Topic: Metadata at IU Libraries Info/Share

Learn more about the Metadata Discussion Group at our blog, blogs.libraries.iub.edu/metadata, or join the group email list by sending the following in the subject line of the message (leave the body of the message blank) to list@list.indiana.edu:

subscribe metadata-discuss-l

Suggestions for future topics are welcome.  Please email jaliss@indiana.edu with suggestions or questions.

Passphrase Expiration Notice
IU will phase in expirations for any passphrase that is more than two years old, beginning on Monday, September 10.  Detailed information on this process can be found in the Knowledge Base (KB) at http://uits.iu.edu/page/bbtp.  This process will apply to all students, faculty, and staff at IU's eight campuses.  Users will begin getting warnings, months in advance of the expiration date.  Users who don't change their passphrases by this date will immediately lose access to CAS-supported resources such as Oncourse, OneStart, ePTO, OTP authentication and PeopleSoft.  Affected users will regain access after completing the passphrase reset, using the Self-Service Passphrase Reset tool (https://passphrase.iu.edu). 

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
Old passwords and passphrases can jeopardize the security of personal and university data.  Passphrase expirations help protect this data against hacking and misuse.

HOW WILL THIS BE ENFORCED?
Passphrase expiration will only be enforced via CAS, IU's Central Authentication System.  Network IDs will not be locked or disable. This means you will still be able to log in to non-CAS services such as workstations, email, and VPN. 

HOW CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT PASSPHRASE EXPIRATION?
