Digital Scholarship Bootcamp for Graduate Students
Do you want to build your very own digital scholarship portfolio? Now you can at the Library’s Digital Scholarship Bootcamp! This 3-day workshop series is intended to help graduate students gain experience with key digital scholarship methodologies and tools. Participants will leave with a digital portfolio of small projects completed during the program. The workshop will cover creating a website for your scholarship, text mining, mapping, and creating infographics.
Graduate students from all disciplines are welcome. To participate, you simply need a topic of interest, some text related to that topic, and some geographic locations related to that topic. Wondering what that might look like? Here are some examples:
Topic: Witch Trials
Text: Transcript of court proceedings from a trial
Geographic Locations: Locations where witch trials were held
Topic: Jane Austen
Text: Austen’s major novels
Geographic Locations: Prominent places mentioned in the novels
