CSU Dominguez Hills will be holding a Scalar workshop for interested librarians and faculty members. If you are unfamiliar with Scalar ( @anvcscalar ) it is a free, open source publishing platform for creating born-digital scholarship. Developed by the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture at USC, Scalar is, as noted on their website, “designed to make it easy for authors to write long-form, born-digital scholarship online. Scalar enables users to assemble media from multiple sources and juxtapose them with their own writing in a variety of ways, with minimal technical expertise required.” An introduction to Scalar could be beneficial for any librarian supporting faculty in the creation of digital scholarship.
The workshop is free (parking excepted), and lunch will be served. Space is limited, and so if you are interested in attending, please contact Dana Ospina @dsospina ) at your earliest convenience. Please feel free to forward to faculty on your campuses. Thank you, and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions!
