The scriptorium is the curation platform for the aiki atheneum. It allows atheneum conservators, keepers, and stewards a permission to sign in and publish context cubbies from a research archive utilizing the scriptorium dashboard’s various functionalities.
A conservator is an institution or organization that is given a unique license to build and preserve knowledge using the atheneum platform for collaborative curation. A keeper is a collaborative partner with the conservator of the library. Both keepers and conservators can deputize stewards (students or research staff) to collaboratively curate their own atheneum.
The scriptorium works alongside Zotero archiving software and can automatically import from Zotero into the scriptorium for publication. Thanks Zotero!
The sign in feature will be available in the coming iteration of the aiki atheneum. The prototype dashboard is available now by invitation only.
The discussion component of the scriptorium will be published as the aiki.wiki prototype and will be available in Q2 of 2015.
For the purposes of our prototype – stewards can use our sub reddit reddit.com/r/aikiwiki on Reddit as a placeholder discussion forum. Thanks Reddit!
The written voice of the scriptorium.
The highest service of the atheneum is trusted credibility around a search topic. The written voice of the scriptorium is the voice of an honest rational consensus attributed to sources in the archive.
Each context cubby has it’s own unique ikia, or set of guidelines, rules and principles to follow to insure trusted credibility for publication in the aiki atheneum.
Each context cubby is required to be written in the voice of an independent, neutral, and rational consensus. This consensus is comprised of leading experts, educators, and writers – along with their assigned deputies, who are assigned as curators or to a supervisory board of curators inside of the atheneum library.
The written voice has no unique point of view – other than the view shared by a rational consensus. The written voice merely acts as a guide for the online user to discover knowledge within a given context of each unique context cubby.
The sole responsibility for curators for each content cubby is to create summaries in specific context to the contents from one trusted database archive for easy discovery and clarification for the online researcher or reader.
This requirement dictates that all written contextualization require third party attribution to all viewpoints expressed in the atheneum context cubbies. Every statement must be sourced to a reference in the Zotero archive in each library of study.
