Tropy Workshop Sessions for Faculty and Library Staff

November 13, 2018

On November 13th, the Digital Scholarship Group and the NULab will be hosting two workshop sessions on Tropy, a new tool for organizing and describing research photos, led by Tropy project manager and former NULab Fellow Abby Mullen. The first session will be designed for library staff and the second for faculty.

Tropy comes to us from the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media, also the home of Zotero and Omeka, and promises to be a leap forward for historians, librarians, archivists, photographers, and more.

Please bring a laptop, if you are able. 

Tropy: Research Photo Management for Librarians and Archivists, 10am to 12pm 
Do patrons come to you asking how to manage photos from archival research? Do you teach skills training courses for your library? You need to learn about Tropy, free and open-source software to help researchers organize and describe their research photos. Flexible enough to describe photos of anything, and robust enough to manage thousands of photos at once, Tropy allows researchers to bring order to their research.
This workshop will teach you about Tropy and offer ideas for how to teach it to others.

Do you take photos of archival materials? Do you teach a theory and methods course to graduate or undergraduate students? You need to learn about Tropy, free and open-source software to help researchers organize and describe their research photos. Flexible enough to describe photos of anything, and robust enough to manage thousands of photos at once, Tropy allows researchers to bring order to their research.
