Information Fluency Workshop: Center for Hellenic Studies

Information Fluency Workshop: Center for Hellenic Studies
By Phoebe Acheson in Becoming a Classics Librarian
In July I had the privilege of spending 10 days teaching a workshop on information fluency in classical studies at the Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington DC.  It was an incredible luxury to explore a topic in such depth, when in the past I have had at most an hour and a half to reach a group of students! I am very grateful to Kenny Morrell, who invited me to teach this class; Lanah Koelle, our program coordinator/librarian who contributed her expertise at every stage; Allie Marby, CHS’s summer interns, and librarians Temple Wright and Erika Bainbridge, who attended sessions and supported us at CHS, especially in the library; and most especially the workshop students, who gracefully accepted their role as guinea pigs and taught me a great deal.  The students were a mixture on American undergraduates and Greek professionals in education and information fields; each brought an inquisitive spirit and their collective hard work and openness to sharing and new ideas was a major factor in the success of the workshop. Thank you!
As a group we assembled some resources that others who are interested in this topic may find useful.  The first is a Zotero group library with folders that list the session topics. Each folder’s contents include citations for assigned readings for the session (usually fairly short, web-based readings) and citations for information resources we discussed during the session.
The students were asked to complete two assignments.  The first, the development of an annotated bibliography, is available as a Google document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cXaPqTDdOUIzI6E26SZiOFjb7a7BMzczWOfh8qXVSJc/. The second, a WordPress Research Guide, is also described in a Google document (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1O3Rm8yXGlhIRPJh3PrDiMgiAgH0LiHhC44mSvq_9QNk/) and the guide itself is available via the CHS’s website.  The guide should be viewed as a work in progress; we began a project that we hope to flesh out with the participants of future workshops in years to come.
Librarians and scholars interested in libraries and archives in Greece will be delighted by Maria Konstantopoulou’s entry on this topic; Latin teachers can find many fun texts to use with beginning students in George Trapalis’ entry; Matina Goga has assembled a list of valuable links for the study of Greek society and culture; Brittany Profitt has done the same for Roman society and culture; teachers of Greek might want to think about using Tyler Verity’s entry on precisely defining words for a classroom exercise; Ashton Murphy’s entry on reading for research addresses study skills faculty may assume undergraduates possess when they arrive at college; and Vanessa Felso’s entry on latin dictionary resources is a model of clarity, useful for any undergraduate. Use them, and share them!

Open Access Journal: VATES

[First posted in AWOL 3 August 2011. Updated 30 August 2013]

VATES: The Journal of New Latin Poetry
VATES is an occasional publication that aims to bring contemporary Latin poetry to the attention of an English-speaking audience. The purpose of the journal is to promote both the reading and the writing of new Latin verse in an attempt to reverse the decline of Latin poetry composition in the English-speaking world.
Published electronically in pdf format, the journal is sent free of charge to any individual or organisation who wishes to see it. They in turn are encouraged to circulate it – either electronically or by printing copies – to an even wider audience. The hope is that the very existence of such a forum for the dissemination of Latin verse will encourage readers to contribute.
The journal is not 'academic' in tone: it is intended for anyone with an interest in the subject. In order to make the publication as accessible as possible, featured Latin poems are accompanied by English translations and all editorial articles are in English.
The journal also features articles on the history of the genre and hints and tips about writing Latin poetry.

PaleoanthropologyDissertations
http://www.paleoanthro.org/static/home/skull_grey150.jpg
The Paleoanthropology Society provides a dissertation (PhD thesis) distribution service. We will place your dissertation, in Adobe Acrobat PDF format, on our web server so that others can easily access it. This service does not preclude you from publishing it elsewhere.
To place your dissertation on this web site, you will first need to submit the abstract to us for review. We will assess whether it meets with our mission to support work in the field of paleoanthropology. Once it is accepted, you will then provide us with a PDF version.

Ancient Egypt in Film

"Egypt, 4000 years ago, a land of strange rituals and savage cruelty..."
(trailer of The Mummy, 1959)
Welcome to the Ancient Egypt Film Site! This site offers an elaborate overview of motion pictures and tv movies that prominently feature Egyptology and ancient Egypt, its monuments or sites. Looking for those magnificent mummy films, or films featuring pyramids or Cleopatra? This is the site to visit!
More than 800 movies, television films and episodes from television series are featured here, with over 200 picture indexes giving impressions of the visual elements involved.
The film and television productions that qualify for mention on this site either have the story set in Ancient Egypt, set in modern times with flashbacks or travel back in time to Ancient Egypt, or in modern times have an ancient Egyptian object or person somehow influence the storyline in a minor or major degree.
The listings presented here were gathered on basis of careful research done on the Internet, in books and by watching and collecting many movies and tv films. Though I did everything possible to give a complete overview, some films or television episodes may still have escaped my attention. If there is anything missing that you think should be included, films, film news or film oddities, please let me know!

Administrative - Statistics and More

This morning AWOL enrolled its six thousandth subscriber by email.  I'm gratified that such a large number of you find AWOL interesting enough to voluntarily add another piece of email to your busy queues each day.

AWOL passed the one million page views threshold a little less than a year ago, and as of today has had 1,668,233 page views. 

You may follow AWOL directly via News Feed (user count not easy to discover), via Feedburner (these are the 6,003 email subscribers), on the newly independent Facebook presence (151 likes),  or on Twitter @ISAWLibrary (726 followers).  You can also follow AWOL on Google+.

AWOL' s Alphabetical list of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies currently includes 1218 titles.  I'm  currently editing and revising the list - a slow process

The following graph charts the growth of traffic on AWOL over its lifetime:

I  also invite you to amuse yourself by browsing through Bookplates of Scholars in Ancient Studies. If any of you have additions, corrections or comments on that, please do get in touch with me.  I'm particularly interested if you can surface other interesting bookplates of scholars of antiquity. I have a few more to add to the collection, once my office gets properly unpacked.
