    Digital humanities (DH) projects pose several digital preservation challenges due to their multimodal approaches and varying technology. Last year, Virginia Tech presented a potential strategy for preserving these projects through documentation and project component packaging. The proposed strategies included identifying various project components, developing preservation strategies for complex items, and consolidating or creating documentation to be packaged and submitted to the Digital Libraries Platform (DLP). In the past year, they have successfully completed a case study for one DH project, identifying the existing components and documentation and creating metadata and documentation where appropriate. They are now in the process of ingesting the project into the DLP, developing a policy surrounding preservation levels and workflows for DH projects, and beginning another case study. In this presentation, they hope to share the strategies we implemented in both of the case studies and their outcomes, as well as the policies they have since created.

    Digital Humanities (DH) projects are often complex and pose a challenge for digital preservation. Best practices and standard techniques for preserving combinations of databases, user interfaces, and documentation does not yet exist. At Virginia Tech University Libraries (VTUL), we have a group of faculty dedicated to developing and sustaining DH projects ranging from small online exhibits to large research projects. As support for these projects develops, a major component is to incorporate preservation planning early on in the process, including a preservation plan, sustainability plan, and general documentation. Another component is researching and testing technical requirements for packaging and maintaining DH project elements. The goal of this presentation is to outline our strategy of early planning and documentation to preserve DH projects effectively. We will discuss our current practices and highlight involvement with one or two projects and explore how this may be used as a model for future work. Please see the speaker notes in the PPTX file for additional context.

    Creating sustainable, preservable Digital Humanities (DH) projects is a challenge that is often left until after project completion if considered at all. This presentation explores a case study that is implementing a strategy of project management, preservation planning, and documentation early in development as a framework for preserving DH projects.

    This volume of original essays explores the power of network thinking and analysis for humanities research. Contributing authors are all scholars whose research focuses on a medical history topic—from the Black Death in fourteenth-century Provence to psychiatric hospitals in twentieth-century Alabama. The chapters take readers through a variety of situations in which scholars must determine if network analysis is right for their research; and, if the answer is yes, what the possibilities are for implementation. Along the way, readers will find practical tips on identifying an appropriate network to analyze, finding the best way to apply network analysis, and choosing the right tools for data visualization. All the chapters in this volume grew out of the 2018 Viral Networks workshop, hosted by the History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine (NIH), funded by the Office of Digital Humanities of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and organized by Virginia Tech.

    Economists have increasingly turned to height data to gain insight into a population’s standard of living. Because height measures are used when other data is unavailable, testing their reliability can be difficult, and concerns over sample selection have lead to several vigorous debates within the heights literature. In this paper, I use a unique contemporaneous census to gauge the extent of selection into a contested sample of American Indian heights. I have linked people from the 1892 Boas sample of the Cherokee Nation to the 1890 Cherokee Census. An initial analysis finds evidence of negative selection into the Boas sample. A detailed examination of those measured reveals a more complex story. Two distinct groups are present within the data. The first group consists of 64 members of the Cherokee elite. Their households owned more land, had invested more in improvements to their land, and had higher literacy rates. The remainder of the Boas sample is poor relative to both the elite and the rest of the Cherokee Nation. Part, but not all, of this difference is due to their residential location. Forty percent of the Boas sample lived in poorest district of Cherokee Nation. These differences in wealth between the two groups were mirrored by a fairly dramatic difference in average heights. The average height of all men in elite group was 173.9 cm while the non-elite were several centimeters shorter at just 171.2 cm. Yale University Economic Growth Center Naval Academy NARC Fund
