Events at the Center for Digital Scholarship & Curation get started this week with our first workshop, then really pick up the pace next week with our first guest scholar. In addition to the Wikistorm with our class, Veronica Paredes will be giving a talk while in town. Join us on Thursday, February 2nd to hear her speak about what happens to old movie theaters. In the meantime, if you’re available this Wednesday at 3:10pm, join me for a workshop on making your email experience more efficient and more professional. Attend either event and blog about it for extra credit.
