Title: From Hack & Yacks to Reading Groups: Keeping skills apace Digital Scholarship
Name of session facilitator(s): Nora
Approximate duration: 1 hr
Skill level: All
Research libraries and cultural heritage institutions must be able to adapt to a changing research landscape and invest in the development of staff skills and core competencies to match if they are to continue to effectively support and engage with modern scholars. The Digital Curator team at British Library creates a variety of opportunities all year round for library staff to develop skills necessary to support emerging areas of modern scholarship, particularly the Digital Humanities (DH).
In this talk I can share a bit about how we approach this through our Digital Scholarship Training Programme, and in turn would love to hear from other campers where and how they keep their skills up to date!
Prerequisite: Just an interest 🙂
