These 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. Participants include members of the NULab for Texts, Maps and Networks, staff members from the Digital Scholarship Group, faculty, librarians, graduate students, and more!
Past topics have included…

  • Data Visualization
  • Text Mining
  • Social Media
  • Copyright and Open Access
  • Text Analysis

DH Open Office Hours will be held weekly on Wednesdays from 12:00 – 1:00 PM in the Digital Scholarship Commons Media Lounge. The most up-to-date information will always be available at the DSG event page.

These sessions are meant to be fun and conversational. We’ll have guided topics and questions, but the questions and topics brought in by attendees are always our priority.
