Event description

Description

Working in small groups, attendees will learn to develop open-access tools to widen access and education

In this practical session we will explore the impact that digital technologies can have in terms of accessibility and the creation of services that facilitate new modes of scholarly communication. Participants will get an understanding on the implementation of data mining and discovery tools, and on the implications of integrating these tools into the workflow of an Open Access digital repository.

This practical session is geared toward students, librarians, scholars, publishers, government representatives, and others who are invested in the development of open access tools as well as the development and sharing of research output.

Ray Siemens is Distinguished Professor in the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Victoria, in English and Computer Science, and past Canada Research Chair in Humanities Computing (2004-15); in 2019, he is also Leverhulme Visiting Professor at Loughborough U and Global Innovation Chair in Digital Humanities at U Newcastle (2019-22). Luis Meneses is a Postdoctoral Fellow and Assistant Director (Technical Development) of the Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (ETCL) at the University of Victoria. He is a Fulbright scholar, and currently serves on the board of the TEI Consortium and on the IEEE Technical Committee on Digital Libraries.
