Make the Past Present with Historic Houston Post Issues in The Portal to Texas History

The Texas Digital Newspaper Program has added over 100,000 pages of the Houston Post to The Portal to Texas History. Covering the years 1903 to 1923, it enables us to step into the shoes of the people who lived through and shaped history.  In other words, like all newspapers, these pages make the past current for present-day readers.

Digital Scholarship Lecture: Laurie N. Taylor

Laurie N. Taylor, Digital Scholarship Librarian at the University of Florida, will be speaking on "Digital Libraries & Digital Scholarship."  

 

In her presentation, she will cover the importance of digital libraries for enabling digital scholarship, including the digital humanities. Digital libraries, digital scholarship, and the digital humanities are inherently socio-technical activities which require people, policies, and technologies. As robust socio-technical systems, digital libraries provide both a model and part of the core foundation necessary for successfully implementing and sustaining digital scholarship. Taylor will share on the experiences from the University of Florida, which leveraged digital library systems and communities to grow digital humanities and digital scholarship activities, projects, and communities.
