Building Instructional Support for Classics Research and Teaching
This initiative, which began in 2015, aims to foster collaboration on the development of shared resources for library instruction in research skills and digital scholarship and pedagogy. Collaborators from FCLSC and the Digital Classicists Association are developing a LibGuide page.
Best Practices for Open Access Monographs’ Visibility
In 2014, FCLSC members participated in a round table discussion, “Open Access Books: The Problem of Visibility.” The conversation yielded a call for a list of best practices for publishers and libraries. Download a copy of the draft.
Open Greek and Latin Project
FCLSC members are developing a plan to build an open corpus of Classical Greek and Latin in collaboration with Greg Crane, the Editor-in-Chief of Perseus and the Humboldt Professor of Computer Science at the University of Leipzig, and Lenny Muellner, Director of IT and Publications at the Center for Hellenic Studies.
Managing Archaeological Data in the Digital Age: Best Practices and Realities
At the Seattle APA/AIA conference in January 2013, the Classics Librarians Forum sponsored a panel on best practices for managing archaeological data. A post by Bill Caraher on The Archaeology of the Mediterranean World includes YouTube videos of all the papers given.
Sponsored by the FCLSC, Ancient MakerSpaces is a venue at the AIA-SCS Annual Meeting for scholars, librarians, and students to share their ongoing digital scholarship and pedagogical work, as well as a space for hands-on, peer-based learning about digital resources and computational methods.
