Virtual Lightbox

By | 2017-02-05T21:25:33+00:00 Thu, Jul 9, 2015|

The Virtual Lightbox is a software tool for comparing images online. It exists in two versions, an application and an applet (both programmed in Java). The applet version, which is newly developed, furnishes what we believe to be an extremely flexible environment for online image comparison. Its primary audience is developers who wish to add an image comparison tool to a Web-based image collection. Simple server-side scripting allows users to populate the Lightbox applet in any number of ways. The application version, which was developed earlier, allows users to share images in peer-to-peer fashion: all users participating in a common session see the same images in the same on-screen configuration at the same time. Movement of an image and other operations are all globally propagated in realtime. Thus the application version functions as an image-based whiteboard.

This was the MITH Networked Associate Fellowship project of Ysaye Maria Barnwell, a renowned musician, composer, actress teacher and choral clinician in African American cultural performance. Barnwell's project aimed to produce a multimedia digital presentation about her family, which eventually became the Ellis Barnwell Robinson Archives. The fellowship also provided support for Barnwell to prepare materials for an exhibit with the potential for traveling, and to prepare materials for inclusion in a book of photos and letters.

Walter Freeman, the world’s foremost proponent and practitioner of lobotomy, was also an obsessive photographer. He almost invariably took photos of his patients before and after surgery, often tracking them down years after the operation to capture their images. These cross-country trips to photograph patients, which Freeman called head-and-shoulder hunting expeditions, consumed the physician during

By | 2017-07-10T11:31:32+00:00 Sun, Apr 6, 2014|

In collaboration with the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC), MITH will develop a prototype application to facilitate the distributed correction and enhancement of HathiTrust metadata records. This project is part of the HTRC’s Workset Creation for Scholarly Analysis: Prototyping Project (WCSA), a two-year effort funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation which aims to engage scholars in designing tools for exploration, location, and analytic grouping of materials so they can routinely conduct computational scholarship at scale, based on meaningful worksets.

Princeton Prosody

In late 2013, MITH partnered with the Princeton Prosody Archive to build tools and modules for processing and indexing volumes from the HathiTrust Digital Library, with the goal of creating a comprehensive online archive of English-language monographs on verse meter and prosody in the public domain. These tools allow research groups like the Prosody Archive to import HathiTrust volumes into a Drupal installation for browsing, reading, full-text search, and metadata correction.
