Spatial Digital Scholarship: Featuring the Imperiia Project
This workshop will provide an overview of spatial digital scholarship and how to identify projects that have a spatial research component. We will discuss different ways that mapping and spatial tools can be integrated into a project, types of and sources for spatial data, and how to present and preserve spatial projects. Laptops not required.
- Gain understanding of the applications of spatial thinking and analysis in digital scholarship projects
- Develop a list of considerations to use when identifying projects that may have a spatial component
- Understand the different sources for spatial data and methods for creating it
NOTE: This session is not hands-on training with mapping and GIS tools. It is more about the concepts and what tools are used--especially relating to the Imperiia Project. The focus of the session is geared toward those in the library who consult with users involved with digital scholarship projects.
Prerequisites: Participants should be familiar with the basic concepts of how digital scholarship fits into higher education and why academic libraries are engaging in digital scholarship. It is also helpful to have a basic understanding of how project management principles and collaboration are essential elements for successful digital scholarship projects.
Location: Lamont Forum Room
