Reading Group: Meeting 4

Reading Group

Nov 14 12:00 – 1:20 pm
Center for Digital Humanities
Firestone Library, Floor B

 

The November 14th Collections as Data Reading Group meeting will be about "Identifying our users: Who will use the data?" Moderated by Jim Casey and Nick Budak.

Please take a look at the Collections as Data Personas (v2) online here: https://collectionsasdata.github.io/personas/ 

Then, browse the list of 50 things you can do to get started in Collections as Data:  https://collectionsasdata.github.io/fiftythings/. We really like the randomizer. From the list, please come prepared to share one thing you think could be a useful first step in your work.

Other motivating questions for discussion: 

  • Who do we imagine as users of PUL collections as data?
  • What are examples of library data being used for computational purposes? Success or failures stories.
  • How do we make collections as data accessible to a variety of users, including non-technical users?
  • How do we use data & digital tools to promote learning, engagement and innovation? How do we promote/encourage the use of PUL collections as data?
  • How do we train Princeton researchers to use collections as data?

Light lunch will be served
