Lunch & Learn! Teaching with Primary Source Databases

Come join our Lunch & Learn, Teaching with Primary Source Databases.

Digital collections of primary sources offer tremendous value, but are they being utilized to their fullest? Their relevance for historians seems obvious, but they can robustly support instruction and student success across the disciplines. This workshop will offer insight into how primary sources can be used in multiple disciplinary contexts, for teaching qualitative and quantitative research methods, and for diverse projects and research outputs.

Attendees can expect to learn about:

  • Approaches to research from varied disciplines
  • Different types of primary sources
  • Creative ideas for teaching with primary sources
  • Data mining and visualization with archives
  • Widening the scope of usage for digital library collections
  •  HTR (Handwritten Text Recognition) Technology for DHI efforts related to Full-Text Search in Manuscript Documents
