We all work with primary and secondary sources that can be usefully framed as data. BU Libraries’ Digital Scholarship Services invites you to join a group of BU faculty, staff, and librarians to begin a discussion of data modeling as an approach and a practical application. We will discuss Part I of The Shape of Data in Digital Humanities: Modeling Texts and Text-Based Resources by Julia Flanders and Fotis Jannidis (Routledge 2018), both generally and in light of specific projects brought to the meeting by participants. At the meeting we will identify sections of Part II of the book that hold particular interest to the group, aiming to hold an additional discussion in spring.
Our first meeting will take place on Friday 1 November at 1pm in Mugar Library’s Estin Room (Rm 302). To get to the Estin Room, take the elevator or stairs nearest the circulation desk to the third floor. Turn left out of the elevator and follow the signs around the wall in front of you. Estin Room entrance is halfway down that wall.
