Doing Digital Scholarship in Japanese Studies: Innovations and Challenges
March 13-14, 2017
Blackburn Room, Robarts Library, University of Toronto
The University of Toronto Libraries, in conjunction with the North American Coordinating Council on Japanese Library Resources (NCC), hosted the Doing Digital Scholarship in Japanese Studies: Innovations and Challenges workshop on March 13 and 14, 2017.
The goals of this workshop were to examine the critical roles that librarians play in creating and sustaining innovative digital scholarship, to share experience among those who have created successful digital projects, and to motivate all libraries to “own” a larger role in the creation and preservation of the digital realm.
The topics covered in the workshop included a combination of presentations and hands-on sessions on digital archiving tools, conservation and preservation, image management systems, geographic information systems (GIS), digital text analysis and data visualization.
The workshop-related resources are now available online. Librarians who were unable to attend the workshop can visit http://guides.nccjapan.org/torontodigital to have access to the video recording of the presentations, examples of digital projects, a list of useful tools, as well as additional resources.
