Is your research taking you to archival collections housed across the country or across the globe? Wondering how you’ll manage to get the most out of your short visit?  Some scholars are taking advantage of digital photography and other tools to quickly capture data, but there are things you should know before heading out of town. Join experienced scholars and staff from the Scholarly Commons for a workshop on using digital tools for archival research. This workshop is designed for graduate students or scholars interested in using digital photography in their archival research efforts. Topics will include a discussion of the pros and cons of using digital tools in archival research; tips for planning your trip to an archive; and information on hardware, software, data back-up, and storage. There will also be a hands-on component where participants will have the opportunity to practice photographing a variety of archival documents. Be sure to bring your digital camera if you can!
