Making and keeping digital projects
With Joanna DiPasquale
3:30pm - We will meet in the Library lobby

Everything is online, in digital format, or somehow on a computer or your phone. Right? (Maybe?) As consumers of information, we’ll talk about how information and its presentation is at best uneven in the online world. As creators of information, we’ll talk about the difficulties in sustaining the digital works that are most important to you. We’ll discuss old and new technology (including hands-on work!), biases in digital libraries, and creating digital projects.

adLIB is an event series that pairs the interests of Librarians and students in programs that inspire curiosity and build relationships. adLIB intends to engage a spirit of spontaneity and curiosity to encourage Vassar students to cultivate genuine interest in the Libraries’ extensive collections, supportive services and informative people. adLIB programs are casual, informal opportunities for students to discover and explore possibilities in our libraries that can be applied to academic work and beyond.

All events will convene in the library lobby at 4:30 unless otherwise noted.
