This presentation has been cancelled and will be rescheduled at a future date.

Presented by: Rebecca Baumann, Lilly Library; Mary Borgo, Department of English; and Meg Meiman, Teaching & Learning

Would you like to see more primary source material in student research projects? Are you interested in helping students build digital projects but aren't sure how to start? In this brown bag, we will discuss how building digital exhibitions of archival and special collections material creates mutually beneficial partnerships for students, teachers, librarians, and technologists. We'll consider case studies from the IU community that have promoted primary source literacy through innovative alternatives to the analog research paper. This presentation is focused on the pedagogical and methodological aspects of digital exhibitions, but we'll also have plenty of tips for where to go for technical help, copyright questions, archival expertise, and assignment design.

This presentation is part of the ongoing Digital Library Brown Bag Series. Follow and contribute to the presentations and discussions on Twitter: #dlbb.
