congressWe are excited to offer a brief CWRCShop at the Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences. We will introduce CWRC’s beta research environment and support prospective users in beginning to work within CWRC.It is suitable for those with little to no encoding experience and will include a short introduction to the principles of interoperability, preservability, and collaboration that inform CWRC. Participants in the workshop will learn how to create collections, add items to those collections with appropriate metadata, and begin to correct and encode ingested page images.The CWRCShop will be the morning session in the two-day DHSI@Congress event, taking place May 30 and 31st, 2015, at the University of Ottawa. This is a great opportunity to get a taste for all DHSI has to offer, or to get acquainted with CWRC and other digital tools and methodologies. Full details here. Click here to register.

The DHSI@Congress is a series of 2.5 hour workshops for scholars, staff, and students interested in a hands-on introduction to the ways that traditional and digital methods of teaching, research, dissemination, creation, and preservation intersect and enhance one another. The workshops are built on the community model of the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, which connects Arts, Humanities, Library, and Archives practices and knowledge in a digital context. The workshops are modular and may be taken individually or as a self-directed course of investigation. We invite you to register for any and all workshops that engage your interest.
