Academic Excellence (ACE) Series: Tropy Workshop: Organizing archival documents for historical research

Room 22 Education

Event Type: Conference/Workshop

Speaker Information: Dr. Jennifer Johnson

Are you an archival researcher with thousands of archival photographs and documents stored on your computer or in the cloud? Do you search through historical documents by flipping through photographs on your computer? Are you interested in learning how to use Tropy to organize and store your archival data? Tropy is a free, open-source software that is innovative for archival researchers. This workshop will demonstrate how to utilize it as a resource to help you organize and describe your documents and photographs while including metadata so that your citations remain accurate. Participants will have the option to bring their laptops so that we can walk you through setting up Tropy.

This session will not be recorded as it will be an in-person workshop, bring your lab top to work on and an empty stomach as lunch will be provided!
