Digital Scholarship Workshops – Spring 2014

This guest post was written by Rebecca Stuhr, Coordinator for Humanities Collections at Penn Libraries. (Updated 3/18/14)

Several departments in Penn Libraries are helping put forth a new set of workshops in the Digital Scholarship Series. These workshops are intended for students, faculty, research staff, and librarians working within any discipline who are looking for guidance and conversation about making the research process more manageable and accessible.

We are looking forward to a collaborative learning environment, so plan to share your ideas, experience, and knowledge about scholarship in the digital environment.

This semester we are focusing on research management and the first workshop is coming right up. All workshops are at noon at the Kislak Center,  6th Floor Van Pelt-Dietrich Library Center, Seminar Room 625.  For workshop details and registration, please visit the WICshops Calendar and filter by Digital Scholarship.

Digital Humanities Workshop Series

This guest post was written by Rebecca Stuhr, Coordinator for Humanities Collections at Penn Libraries, with assistance from Dot Porter, Caitlin Shanley, and other collaborators in the workshop series.

This summer the Libraries are offering the first four sessions in a new set of workshops in the Digital Humanities Series. These follow several tools-based workshops offered by Mitch Fraas over the past year and will dovetail with workshops offered by Penn’s Digital Humanities Forum beginning this fall. The workshops are designed with library staff in mind but are open to the Penn community. We are looking forward to a collaborative learning environment, so plan to share your ideas, experience, and knowledge about scholarship in the digital environment.

The first four sessions will be taught by Libraries staff and collaborators, and will focus on Qualitative Research, Collaboration Theory and Practice, Practical Open Access, and a general tour of Theories, Methodologies, and Tools. If you tried to register earlier and were unable to, please try again! We have opened up additional seats.
