Annotate Digital Imagery: Theory, Applied Practice, and Tools for Research
February 29 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Information systems since the advent of the World Wide Web have offered increasingly sophisticated and reliable tools for inquiry and scholarship based upon centuries-old practices of annotation. What are the connections and tensions between visual and verbal media? How do idiosyncratic readerly practices of scribbling in margins of a book translate into W3C standards for networked multimedia scholarly communication, and what impacts will community standards development have upon the future of knowledge production (or your career)?
This workshop will provide a theoretical introduction to the ancient and still evolving social practice of annotation and situate leading ideas in the concrete tools and practices of digital knowledge production. Taking a 3-tiered approach (simple, intermediate, complex), it will present several handy tools for immediate and long-term application.
This workshop is part of the Research Collections and Digital Scholarship series — a collaboration between the Office of Advanced Research Computing (OARC) and the UCLA Digital Library Program.
Any questions about this workshop can be emailed to Francesca Albrezzi (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Christopher Gilman (email@example.com).
This is a hybrid workshop (OARC Portal or Zoom).
