Reasons people are coming to THATCamp OK

    “I’m a computer science student interested in computing accessibility. I’ve been working on the last semester on a tool to search imagery in library collections, but I haven’t actually been in contact with LIS-type people for their input, and would like to get to know the field better.”
    “I’d like to hear how others across OK are utilizing maps and/or spatial technologies in their work, and how I might help in my capacity as maps and spatial data librarian at OSU.”
    “I am a digital humanities scholar working with others on a digital archive project and would enjoy learning new things about technology and finding out what others are doing in digital humanities.”
    “I am the Research Data Specialist for the Oklahoma University Libraries. I am interested in research data management and helping scholars with their digital needs and solving their digital problems.”
    “I have participated in the previous two THATCamps and benefited from the networking with colleagues on my campus as well as others statewide. I find it an excellent collaborative environment that addresses the technical and intellectual background of DH.”
    “I’m an Emerging Technologies Librarian interested in makerspaces and open educational resources.”
    “I want to learn more about what DH projects people are doing in the state and what cool tools they’re using. I would also like to discuss using Calibre as an easy, no-coding required way to get texts for a corpus, and am interested in other no-coding required tools for text analysis and corpus creation.”
    “I would like the chance to explore some of the questions that have come up in my own research about how new visual technologies are shaping how we produce and communicate scholarly knowledge.”
    “I am a Professor in the School of Library and Information Studies. I have been working on a large DH project, the Digital Latin Library for the past three years. I am particularly interested in user-centered design, representation design, and learning more about how people’s work/play/lives shape knowledge structures.”
    “As a public historian and adjunct lecturer, I see the vast possibilities that the digital humanities can provide. In an era where people read less and watch more, I want to seize that opportunity to educate those who would otherwise pass on the subject matter.”
