Breakout Session proposal

Session Leaders:

Dr. David Oberhelman, OSU Libraries

Dr. Andrew Wadoski, OSU Dept. of English

Sarah Coates, OSU Libraries


In Fall 2015, Dr. Andrew Wadoski (OSU Dept. of English), Dr. David Oberhelman (OSU Libraries’ Research and Learning Services), and Sarah Coates (OSU Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives) built upon a longstanding collaboration in developing a digital critical edition of the devotional verse of Elizabeth Newell (Beinecke Osborne ms. B49 ca. 1655-1668), a 17th century poet as the final project for Dr. Wadoski’s upper-level undergraduate course on Metaphysical Poets.

The critical edition was created by the students in the class, and comprised of the students’ transcriptions of Newell’s works, providing definitions of words and contextual annotations and footnotes, and then uploading their work into a WordPress site provided by the Library. There were a few surprises along the way, and the project had to evolve to adapt to the changes that were discovered while students researched these works.

This panel will give an overview of the project; discuss the pedagogical changes that occurred over the course of this project; demonstrate how librarians, archivists, and faculty can collaborate on projects; and will provide advice on how to incorporate digital projects into the undergraduate classroom.
