Date: Tuesday, January 31, 2023
Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
Presenter: Liz Milewicz & Arianne Hartsell-Gundy
Location: Online

This workshop will help graduate students across the disciplines, but primarily in the humanities and social sciences, evaluate digital scholarly publications on the web.  Students will acquire skills that will allow them to evaluate scholarly aspects of digital scholarly publications, appropriately cite those publications in their work, and understand how to credit the work of other contributors in their own digital works.  Students will explore digital scholarly publications through hands-on activities and discuss and reflect on best practices.  This workshop will be led by Liz Milewicz, co-director of the ScholarWorks Center, and Arianne Hartsell-Gundy, Head of the Humanities Section at Duke University Libraries.

This workshop provides 2 credit hours towards the Duke Graduate School's Responsible Conduct of Research credit requirements (GS717). All are welcome to register; priority seating will be given to graduate students, particularly students in the humanities and social sciences. Please note that, in order to make the most of our time in the workshop, there will be some pre-work required.

This event will be offered virtually. Information about how to participate via Zoom will be sent to all confirmed registrants via email before the event. A Duke NetID is required.
