  1. CRADLE Seminar Series Open Textbooks in Australia updated localised inclusive Pa

    Open textbooks are a recent innovation in free, digital texts that can be: • distributed at no cost; • printed at cost-price; • and modified for local needs, such as to correct gender, socio-cultural and indigenous under-representations and mis-representation in the curriculum.

    Open textbooks are a kind of Open Educational Resource (OER) and are designed to be shared with appropriate attribution of authors. A National Scoping study has recently been completed by Dr Sarah Lambert at Deakin University, funded by the National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE). The research investigated if open textbooks could be useful social justice initiatives in Australia, as they have been overseas.

    The staff and student data suggest that open textbooks and diverse open reading lists have potential in the Australian context for reducing inequalities of learning experiences and outcomes. While the international literature suggests cost savings to students have positive benefits for both students and institutions, the Australian findings suggest that open textbooks are also valuable to: • reduce the inequalities, workarounds and compromises of restrictive digital access to commercial texts that restrict access (time or number of chapters) • provide seamless integration of whole resources …

  2. AI4LAM Webinar: AI-enabled GLAMR Practice: The Technical Landscape

    Jenna Bain, State Library NSW, and Keir Winesmith, State Library of Queensland Digital Collections Catalyst in Residence, provide two perspectives on using machine learning with GLAMR collections.

    Jenna Bain shares the SLNSW experience using machine learning to improve discoverability of image collections using automated generation and refinement of tags.

    Keir Winesmith discusses his experience as the Digital Collections Catalyst in Residence at the State Library of Queensland, where he used machine learning to generate predictive mapping visualisations. The 'Mapping Future Brisbane' project used Brisbane’s past to speculate on its future.

    The webinar closes with a conversation, where Jenna and Keir respond to audience questions, and talk about the opportunities they identify in these areas and their hopes for the future.

  3. AI4LAM: GLAMR Machine Learning Experiments in Aotearoa New Zealand and Australia

    Three GLAMR professionals working in cultural institutions in New Zealand and Australia spoke about recent experimentation using machine learning techniques with their diverse digital collections.

    Adam Moriarty, Head of Collections Information and Access, Auckland War Memorial Museum - observations based on the Museum’s experimental projects with AI and machine learning. Julia Hickie, A/Dir Platform Transition (Trove) and Mark Raadgever, Program Manager Platform Transition (also Trove) National Library of Australia – observations on experimental work with collaborators that has become embedded as part of Trove discovery. Machine Learning that’s specifically used to enhance the user experience for the masses. Tatiana Antsoupova, Dir, Agency Engagement, National Archives of Australia - sharing the Archives experience delivering the projects described in: More human than human? Artificial intelligence in the archive. This includes evaluating the creation and implementation of various types of machine learning, including auto-classification, clustering, and indexing tools, as part of a future digital approach to all agency records authorities.

    This online session was co-hosted by Alexis Tindall, Manager Digital Innovation, University of Adelaide Library and Ingrid Mason, eResearch and digital cultural…

  4. Let’s Talk About the ‘F’ Word

    We need to talk about the “F” word. Funga. They are the secret sauce that makes the wild work. Trees can’t grow in soil without fungi. Penicillin came from fungi. Animals, from birds to worms, eat fungi. And fungi help keep carbon in the ground. We should be talking about funga all the time! So, we’re going to start.

    Along with @iucnssc, we’re adopting the 3F proposal, developed by @ffungi. We pledge to be mycologically inclusive and use mycologically inclusive language, because we can’t rewild the world without funga.

    Join us and start using the “F” word.

  5. Michael Christie on Indigenous Ontologies and Digital Humanities Databases

    Jill Walker Rettberg interviews Michael Christie about his paper “Words, Ontologies and Aboriginal Databases". Prof Christie discusses how when he and his team developed databases of Australian Aboriginal stories, the Aboriginal people he was working with found that the standard structures of the database with metadata and hierarchical categories didn't work at all for them. Christie argues that databases are designed for Western science, where we build knowledge by dividing everything into separate categories. This doesn't support indigenous knowledge building. Designing databases with flatter structures can help, but doesn't completely solve the problem.

  6. Cory Doctorow with Rebecca Giblin on author incomes, copyright and the book industry

    Author, activist and journalist Cory Doctorow sits down with ARC Future Fellow Rebecca Giblin from Monash Law to discuss the rapidly changing book industry.

    Author incomes are plummeting. What opportunities do we have for improving them? Could Doctorow's 'Shut Up and Take My Money' platform be part of the solution?
