CANCELLED: Digital Brown Bag | Connecting Digital Projects—on a Deadline, at a Distance—with Scalability in Mind

Event series cancelled as part of campus response to coronavirus (2020 March).

Join us for a conversation with Sylvia Miller, Senior Program Manager at the Franklin Humanities Institute and Duke University Press’s project liaison for the Carlyle Letters Online (CLO), to hear about a new online John Ruskin Archive that will connect to the CLO via the fascinating Ruskin-Carlyle correspondence. While the CLO  has a long history of editorial and technological development, the new project has only a short time to launch a scalable prototype. 

The theme of this session will be the challenges of balancing project-specific goals with scalability to enable the future aspirations of the Victorian Lives & Letters Consortium. With a one-year grant from the Delmas Foundation and student developers at the University of South Carolina who will finish work at the end of the Spring semester, the project team has to move fast and make pragmatic decisions.  Sylvia will share behind-the-scenes project-management strategies, and she looks forward to ideas and feedback from you.
