A team of social science researchers at the University of Chicago were starting an ambitious project - the Chicago Archive of Indigenous Languages and Literatures - to preserve and catalog hundreds of pieces of fiction written in endangered indigenous languages. But without a technological framework, their information was disorganized, and they had no way to share the fruits of their research with others. We built a comprehensive, web-based locus for collecting catalog data and scanned copies of the works. Different access levels for researchers, academic users, and the general public ensure that copyrighted or sensitive works can be kept private, and the entire effort is coordinated in tandem with an academic library which holds physical copies of many of the works. Members of the research team can access and update the data from anywhere, whether they are acquiring new material in Latin America or in their office in the States. Digital scans of the works ensure broad access to users in any country, while helping safeguard the paper originals. CAILLA both preserves these ephemeral works for the future and allows more people to find and use these books and magazines in the here and now.
Emily Carr University's The Show 2013 app and site needed to streamline the submission process, make curation easy, and deliver content in beautiful layouts accessible through desktops, tablets, and phones. Steamclock designed and developed the native iPad app, the responsive web apps for browsing and curating content, and the APIs that tie it all together. Using Node.js, HTML5, and Objective-C, we created a great experience across various devices.
