Archival Data: Collection, Curation, & Visualization


February 21 4:30 – 6:00 pm
Center for Digital Humanities
Firestone Library, Floor B

Does your research involve collecting data from physical books, manuscripts, or other archival material? Do you have (messy) archival data that you would like analyze? Are you interested in learning about different ways to visualize your archival data?

This workshop will explore best practices for data collection in the archives and present participants with various tools and tricks for visualizing their findings with maps, graphs, or networks. In particular, we will gather sample data in Princeton’s Rare Books and Special Collections and then analyze and visualize our sample data in the Center for Digital Humanities. Since the first part of this workshop will take place in RBSC with actual archival materials, space is limited!

Please RSVP by Friday, February 16: 

*Once you have been confirmed as a participant in the workshop, you will receive additional details regarding where to meet, what to bring, etc.*
