Title:DH Open Office Hours: Bring Your Questions!
Date:Wednesday, September 27, 2017
Time:12:00pm - 1:00pm
Presenter:Caroline Klibanoff
Location:Snell Library, Digital Scholarship Commons: Media Lounge (211 SL)
Categories:Digital Scholarship

Bring your questions about DH tools, practices and methods to this open session for discussion. We will also look at some recent interesting examples of DH projects. Attendees will learn about the broader world of DH at Northeastern and beyond and meet others interested in the same.

DH Open Office Hours are a great way for beginning and experienced researchers to share knowledge about how to use different tools, or to turn an idea into a solid project. We’ll also share current and completed projects, as well as our experiences with many different facets of the DH world. There will also be informal talk sessions with visiting digital scholars. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and faculty who are interested in DH and see what they’re up to. Feel free to bring your lunch!

DH Open Office Hours will be beginning again this week on September 13th. This year they will be held every Wednesday from 12:00 - 1:00 PM in the Digital Scholarship Commons Media Lounge, located on the second floor of Snell Library (take a right out of the stairwell, head through the glass double doors, and take an immediate left toward the orange couches).
