Do you have an upcoming digital research project and not know where to start?
Are you considering an alt-ac career in digital humanities or digital research and want to learn more about the skills you need to be successful?
Stanford University Libraries' digiPrep Workshops provide the skills and information needed for effectively managing digital projects, as well as ideas and tools for getting the job done. While the content of this series was originally designed to help those individuals working on Digital Humanities projects, library staff from various other disciplines (i.e. Social Sciences, Engineering, Sciences, etc.) will be participating in these workshops as well to provide information on best practices for students wanting to learn about digital scholarship in areas other than the humanities. These same skills for effective digital scholarship are often the same ones necessary for people interested in alternate academy (Alt-Ac) careers, so if you are considering an Alt-Ac career but aren't necessarily a digital humanist or computational social scientist, this workshop is for you too!
