DIGITAL TOOLS FOR SCHOLARS

A hands-on introduction to doing scholarly work in a digital world

In Fall 2012, the Division of Libraries and The Humanities Initiative at NYU offer a series of six workshops to introduce graduate students and faculty to tools that enable and support digital scholarship. Each session explores uses and benefits of technology for specific scholarly tasks while providing hands-on practice with particular tools and information about further training in NYU Libraries’ Digital and Data Service Studios. All of these tools are used across disciplines in the arts and sciences.

The workshops will be held on six Fridays during Fall semester, 2012, from 12:30 – 2 p.m., in the Media Viewing Room, Bobst Library Research Commons, 5th floor west.

Space is very limited. View class descriptions and register
