Rutgers’ Digital Humanities Initiative and the Libraries will host a Digital Lab Series of five workshops throughout the spring semester at the Alexander Library, Rutgers University–New Brunswick.  The workshops will focus on some of the sources, methodologies, and theories of digital scholarship.  All will be held in room IHL 415 (fourth floor).  No prior experience is necessary.  RSVP here.

The April 6 lab will introduce the basic building blocks of the web: HTML and CSS. The goal of this lab is to gain a modest bit of empowerment by getting a more detailed understanding of the way the systems we already use handle text and media, and learning more ways to manipulate that content, independently of software. We will survey some of the available options at Rutgers and beyond for academics creating websites about their work, and finish by modifying a Bootstrap template to create a basic academic website. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome. Please bring a CV!
