Digital Medieval Studies Workshop Number Five:

Starting Your Project

  • Kelli Babcock, Digital Initiatives Librarian, University of Toronto Libraries
  • Alexandra Bolintineanu, CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for Medieval Studies

How do you get started with a scholarly project in digital form?  Kelli Babcock and Alexandra Bolintineanu discuss best practices in data curation, software design, and sustainability.  By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to answer the following questions about building a sustainable Digital Medieval Studies project:

  • What is your data?
  • What technology do you use for your project?  What are best practices in selecting or building software?
  • How do you make your project sustainable? 
  • How do you avoid the most common pitfalls of digital projects?
  • How can the library help you with project management, application development and support, promotion and discoverability, and getting grants?

Participants are encouraged to bring in their own project ideas for the Q and A session.

Faculty and graduate students are warmly welcome. For further information, please contact the Centre for Medieval Studies at (416) 978-4884.
