Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

Tired of describing film, art, and sound in non-media friendly documents? Want to present your research accessible to a broader public? In this hands-on workshop, we will explore Scalar, a digital publishing platform. As we walk through how to add and display media content, we will  discuss basic writing strategies for multimedia publications, including resources for assessing copyright, file formats, and page layout. 
This workshop serves as a companion to “Introduction to Scalar: Visualizing Your Argument,” though no prior experience with Scalar or web-based design necessary. All are welcome to participate!
