Tonight! Taking DH Off Campus at the UnLab!

Taking DH Off Campus


You are invited to join us tomorrow evening at 7pm at UnLab for an informal chat about all things digital humanities. If you are curious about DH and want to know more, if you have ideas for DH related projects, of if you simply want to listen, check out the UnLab, and be inspired, please join us!

Discussion is always open and takes many directions. Tomorrow we need to gather ideas on how to showcase Western’s DH classes/projects to the larger HASTAC community, and also ponder what type of DH projects can be done during a 14 hour bus ride! Curious? Come and find out!

Online Citation Software: A Workshop on Mendeley and Zotero

On 5 February, the Research Group for Electronic Textuality and Theory will be holding a special workshop for faculty and graduate students, to be led by Kim Martin from FIMS:

“Online Citation Software: A Workshop on Mendeley and Zotero
5 February, 2013
4:30-6:30 p.m.
Somerville House Room 2317

Mendeley and Zotero are free online and desktop applications that facilitate citation, reference management, archiving, and online sharing of research materials and citation lists.  Zotero is open source software designed in particular for the Humanities at George Mason University.

Workshop on Mendeley and Zotero

Kim will begin with a brief discussion of the merits and advantages of both these applications, and then lead participants through the steps in setting up and managing their own online reference library. Participants should plan to bring a laptop computer with them to the session, and should (if possible) have registered for and installed both programmes on it. No registration is required for this workshop.
