Each January, the Cornell University Library offers an immersion program for humanities PhD students. The program’s aim is to provide participants with the technologies, tools, and research skills to become more efficient scholars. Participants experience a series of hands-on demonstrations, break-out sessions and group discussions that cover such topics as file and information management, keeping on top of current scholarship, managing copyright, subject-based research, using a camera in the archives, image searching, data visualization, text mining, open access publishing, and more.
Program dates for 2020: Tuesday, January 14–Friday, January 17.
The application period is now closed.
If you have any questions or comments about the program, please get in touch with us.
