BisonNet Month in the Digital Scholarship Studio
Have you heard of BisonNet? Join us in the Digital Scholarship Studio, 124 Bertrand Library this March to learn more about how you can use the new computer resources available through BisonNet. We will be hosting an open house on March 4, 18, or 25, 2020 from noon to 1 p.m. in the Digital Scholarship Studio, Bertrand Library.
BisonNet has enhanced the Bucknell IT infrastructure in the following ways:
- Research Network: to create a high-speed, independent network for research that will improve Bucknell’s ability to exchange GIS, bioinformatics, and clinical data with partners inside and outside of Bucknell.
- High Performance Computing Cluster: improved performance for research computing resources and to prepare students for postgraduate work and study in data-intensive fields.
- Archival / Object Storage: will centralize and consolidate storage and back-up to assist faculty and students with short- and long-term research data management.
- Remote Lab: improvements to lab infrastructure at key locations on campus for the exchange of geographic, multidisciplinary, and large datasets.
Mellon Grant Awarded to Bucknell
Bucknell was awarded a Mellon grant to support Liberal Arts Based Digital Editions Publishing Cooperative (LAB Cooperative) project, which will develop an online editorial production, publication, dissemination and preservation framework for preservable digital scholarly publishing. Diane Jakacki, digital scholarship coordinator, is the principal investigator on the project. Congratulations to Diane and her grant partners at the Canadian Writing Research Collaboratory (CWRC) and Newcastle University.
The grant will support multiple projects at Bucknell and is already having a positive impact on the Moravian Lives project led by Katherine Faull, and the Florentine Codex project led by Obed Lira. Please reach out to Diane if you have any questions about how this grant will impact digital scholarship at Bucknell.
