We’ve all heard about digital humanities. The research data is often visual in nature, but how does it fit into the work that art libraries do? 

During this four-hour workshop, participants will be introduced to a variety of free and open-source software tools that can be used to support research using digital humanities methodologies. Tools for activities such as visualization, timelines, and mapping and image recognition will be covered to help art librarians re-envision art resources and better support researchers as they move toward new modes of inquiry. Participants are encouraged to identify small data sets, images, or other information that they would like to organize in new ways and bring to the course. The first three hours will provide a survey and light training of these tool, while the last hour will allow for more engaged work using a specific tool and data set, hopefully yielding innovative results! 

Approximately one month before the workshop, a set of links will be sent out for download of software. Each participant will be expected to blog on a Wordpress site about their expectations for the workshop, as well as results. Participants may have the opportunity to share innovative projects created through this workshop as part of the conference's Poster 2.0/Emerging Technology Forum joint event.

All participants must bring their own laptops. 

Level: Introductory to topic, but must possess intermediate technology skills.
