Digital Scholarship Workshop I: Managing Archival Materials as Data

Will Shaw and Joseph Mulligan

Ever wondered how to store and organize the many photographs and scans you collect during a visit to the archives? How can digital tools make your life as a researcher easier?

In this workshop, participants will learn how to create an archive of visual materials for research using Tropy. Tropy is an image management toolkit that allows users to organize images, record metadata about them, transcribe text from manuscripts or printed material and export data for other uses. This workshop demonstrates how Tropy can be an integral part of your archival research workflows and explores the processes and organizational strategies that allow users to make the most of the software.

Lunch will be served.
