In 2019, the art history program gave its masters students a new option to create a digital capstone project using Omeka S or WordPress. To support these projects, a partnership developed between AU’s library, visual resources center, and archives. This session covers how three campus units coordinate support for these digital humanities projects and showcases examples of student work from AU’s MA program in Art History. We will also share and discuss examples of projects developed at other institutions that demonstrate the platform’s potential for use in disciplines beyond Art History.
Learn how the visual resources curator, the art librarian, metadata and cataloging, the archivist, and IT collaborate to support digital MA theses programs
Consider how other departments or programs might adapt this model to support digital scholarship among their students
