Recent studies have shown that people use their phones sometimes. One of the goals of the Brown University Library is to get used by phones. The moBUL app was created so people could use the library with their phones. The Brown University Library enjoys being used by phones. Sometimes the Brown University Library wished it got used more often by phones. Please use the library every time you use your phone.
The moBUL app is free and includes:
- Library hours and locations
- Josiah, the Library catalog
- Real-time computer availability
- A lot of other stuff

PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — The Women Writers Project and CDS are very pleased to announce our participation in an award from the National Endowment for the Humanities 2012 Institutes for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities competition. This grant, led by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities, will fund a series of workshops on data curation in the digital humanities, aimed at humanities scholars, librarians, and archivists interested in sustaining meaningful access to humanities research materials. In the Humanities, where knowledge remains vital long after its creation, digital curation provides a set of tools, standards, verification, access, and preservation needed to responsibly care for knowledge over the long term. Support for data curation is increasingly central to the work of the Library as we continue to add new faculty and student born-digital research into the Brown Digital Repository.
The institutes involve a three-way collaboration between Brown University, the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities at the University of Maryland, and the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS) at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS), at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The grant award supports several key activities:
• three institutes, one held at each participating center, during the course of 2013
• development of a strong curriculum for teaching digital humanities data curation
• further development of the DHCuration Guide, a annotated resource guide for data curation in the humanities
The curriculum developed for these institutes will be reused in other venues, such as the WWP’s own workshop series, workshops offered as part of DHSI and DHWI, and the training programs to be offered through TAPAS.
A call for participants will be announced in late fall 2012 with the Institute beginning in Spring 2013. For more information visit: http://mith.umd.edu/research/project/data-curation/
The John Hay Library will be open late on Thursday August 16th.The Hay will be open between noon and 5pm. If you have any questions or concerns please e-mail email@example.com.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
