"Collections as Data," a PUL and CDH discussion series

Posted: Saturday, 16 November 2019 - 3:15pm

Collections as Data Series Banner

Princeton University Library partners with the Center for Digital Humanities to explore how PUL collections can be leveraged to support computationally-driven research and teaching. We invite members from the Princeton research community who play various roles in the creation, dissemination, and use of library collections. Through short readings, discussions, presentations, and hands-on activities, this group will identify ways that PUL collections are currently being exposed as data and explore ways to better coordinate efforts to support and sustain cutting-edge, data-driven scholarship at Princeton.

Discussion series to be held monthly, noon to 1:30 p.m.
Center for Digital Humanities, Firestone, Floor B
