How to Navigate the News
Do you need a full-text newspaper article from the 1890s? How about a Wall Street Journal article from last year that's sitting behind a paywall online? This session will guide you through the landscape of news resources available at the library, from historical papers to international news to your hometown publication. Learn the best way to navigate news resources based on your needs, and figure out which formats – from online databases to microfilm – will suit your project.
Two Sessions Offered
Introducing Digital Humanities
Humanities scholars already do quite a bit that could be considered "digital." We conduct research in online environments, store data as electronic files, and write "born-digital" documents. So what is it that distinguishes an emerging "digital humanities" from these tried and true research methods and modes of expression? This Introduction to Digital Humanities workshop addresses this question, focusing on new tools for conducting and storing research, new large-scale formats and databases that expand traditional objects of study, and new interactive platforms for the publication and dissemination of findings.
