Interested in digital humanities / digital scholarship? Drop by to share & learn about digital research, pedagogy & publishing @ UCR.

Each month, the UCR Library hosts casual community conversations on digital research, teaching, and publishing. These informal meetups are designed to facilitate collaborative learning and connection across all disciplines and departments at UCR. All UCR community members are welcome to attend, regardless of your prior experience with digital humanities or digital scholarship!

Each meeting will focus on a specific topic within digital scholarship (see the list below). This quarter our topics will focus on universal design, accessibility, and user experience principles for digital projects. Community members are always invited to share their projects and experiences with related tools, and participate in informal conversation about the topic of the week.

You may also be interested in additional meetups and events. Complete List of UCR Library Events

All participants are expected to follow and uphold UC Riverside's Principles of Community.

Coordinators: Krystal Boehlert and Rachel Starry

List of meetup topics for Spring 2022:

  • April 6, 2022: User-Friendly Design for Digital Projects - Join us for a discussion about making digital projects user-friendly. We’ll speak about some basic concepts like user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) as well as chat about common challenges and strategies related to presenting easy-to-digest information, particularly for digital humanities and social sciences projects. We will also share some example projects to learn from.
  • May 4, 2022: Understanding Accessibility for Digital Projects - Accessibility is a central concern not only for websites but also for more complex digital research outputs like interactive maps, charts, and other media. At this meetup we will demonstrate best practices writing good alt text for a variety of digital media and discuss strategies for incorporating accessibility principles into your digital project workflows.
  • June 1, 2022: In-Person Digital Scholarship Meetup - To celebrate the end of the academic year, we’d like to connect with you all in person! Stop by to say hello, share your successes from the year, and your summer plans, as we enjoy the fresh air on our beautiful campus. Meeting location details TBD: register on Eventbrite to stay updated!
