Spring 2011 Projects 

Morocco Group Digital Archive
Dana Hauck
This project involved using ExpressScribe and Final Cut Pro to transcribe the past meetings of the Morocco Group, a Moroccan culture group on Tulane's campus that is open to faculty, students, and the community. The project also involved creating a new web page for the Morocco Group that includes information and photos of the group as well as a public archive of past meetings. 

Nadine Vorhoff Library Web Page and Zines Blog
Erin Moorefield
This project involved updating and editing the Nadine Vorhoff Library web page to be more appealing and easier for users to navigate by adding layers, new photos, and additional sections. Additionally, to increase interest and awareness in the resources available at the Nadine Vorhoff Library, a blog about the library’s zines was created, featuring reviews written by students.

LUNA Image Gallery Website Plugin and Sophielab Inventory Database
Ben Warzeski
This project involved creating a gallery website framework in Javascript and PHP to accommodate and display image archives from the LUNA Commons Digital Library onto an external web page.  Additionally, a MySQL database was created for tracking Sophielab inventory.

Gender and Judging Blog
Emily Lazaroff
This project involved updating and editing the Gender and Judging blog. It involved using Wordpress to update member's profiles and add information on conferences the research network hosts annually.  It involved incorporating relevant scholarly work on Gender and Judging and learning how to use Wikipedia as another way to promote work on the topic. Additionally, the project included making the blog easier to navigate for both members and first time visitors.

Women Artists, Collectors and Dealers of the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century
Jessie Lingenfelter
This project involved the creation of a Media Wiki to publish information about women artists, sellers and buyers between the years of 1740 and 1900. Most of these women have never been published in any book, journal or Internet site, therefore this project is one of the first in its existence to put forth biographical information on these women. After collecting much research about the women, the information has been published online on the interactive forum of the Media Wiki and can be updated by anyone who has information about any artist, collector or dealer.

Interactive Map and Timeline of the Newcomb College Washington Avenue Campus
Yuhui Yun
This project involved the creation of an online interactive map and timeline of the Newcomb College Washington Avenue campus.  The interactive map allows people to view images and descriptions of the various buildings from the time period; the timeline shows how the campus developed and expanded from 1891 to 1918.  It was built in Adobe Flash Catalyst.
