Workshops to explore new ways to showcase research and scholarly activity

Leddy Library’s Centre for Digital Scholarship will kick-off two workshop series next week to help researchers explore new ways to showcase their research and scholarly activity.

The first series, Creating Digital Exhibits, includes four workshops on how to create unique digital exhibits to showcase scholarly work and research.

“Creating a digital exhibit allows you to curate collections of documents, images, audio, and more for display online, giving you the ability to reach audiences around the world,” said Devon Mordell, digital scholarship and archiving librarian. “We use a wide variety of open-source and free software so that participants can continue to create new projects on their own after the workshop.”

The second series, Visualization for Humanities Data, is made up of five workshops on how to prepare and visualize various types of data used in the Humanities.

“Visualizing data can lead to new insights about the phenomena they describe,” said Mordell. “It also offers a dynamic and engaging way to present your findings.”

Participants can attend all or select workshops. Workshops are free and space is limited.
