ASERL Friends:

Another session in ASERL's ongoing webinar series:  Learn about Digital 
Scholarship efforts at the University of Georgia and Georgia State University. 

SESSION DESCRIPTION
Leaders at the University of Georgia Libraries see Digital Humanities as a 
research mode and a method of pedagogical inquiry. By helping to design syllabi 
for undergraduate DH certificate programs and scoping classroom projects, 
librarians are able to integrate Digital Humanities tools and methods directly 
into humanities research and pedagogy. With this approach, students see the 
immediate application of DH to traditional humanities objects of study and this 
kind of use helps them pursue innovative research questions and methods. In the 
last two years, UGA librarians have been a part of nearly 20 classes in six 
different departments, and demand is on the increase. This webinar will detail 
UGA's process, which utilizes open source and/or free tools and methods. 

At Georgia State University, the Library works with the GSU Student Innovation 
Fellows (SIF) program to develop digital projects involving local history and 
archival materials presented in 2D and 3D digital environments. These are built 
by undergraduate and graduate students who are paid and receive acknowledgement 
for their work on the projects. The projects are designed to facilitate 
research and discovery, integration into courses, and contributions from the 
community. They have piloted a workflow for involving freshman introductory 
classes to help first-year students learn basic research skills while 
contributing to the projects and receiving credit for their work.  Project 
topics include 1920s Atlanta, Oakland Cemetery, and Manuel’s Tavern (a local 
political meeting place). This webinar presentation will outline the projects, 
workflows, and outcomes of these collaborations.
