Special Collections as Data: Historic Materials and Their Digital Dissemination
Friends of the Libraries speaker series, Tuesday, March 27, 4:10 pm, Scheler Humanities Forum (Linderman 200)
Presented by Will Noel, Director, Kislak Center for Special Collections, Rare Books and Manuscripts, University of Pennsylvania.
Contemporary technology renders the unique ubiquitous and the expensive free, opening up a wealth of historical documents and works of art to entirely new audiences and innovative methods of inquiry. But what is the role of the historic artifact in this brave new world, and how can we be sure of what we are seeing on our screens?
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
