Workshops - Introduction to Digital Publishing
Digital Documentation Workshops
The Digital Documentation Center (DDC) is holding 2 workshops on recording and publishing scholarly material with digital media. The workshops will be targetting faculty and departmental staff that need to begin working on methods of conveying and archiving material for teaching, research and publishing. These workshops are intended for both the technically inclined and neophytes. The only prerequisite is a perceived need to explore digital media as a means of scholarly communication. The size and nature of the sessions will allow for "closed-door" discussions and individual questions.
Participants will be registered on a first-come first-served basis. Each workshop will have room for a maximum of 12 participants. The workshops will take place on:
Wednesday May 5, 1999
at the DDC in room 114 in the Old Pharmacy Building, lasting from 1000 til 1500. The format will be an in-depth lecture based on examples produced by the DDC and other cultural websites on the Internet followed by question-and-answers sessions illustrated with demos.
The workshops are not meant to be courses in digitial publishing, but interactive sessions intended to give in-depth views of various digital media as presently being used in the international academic community.
The sessions will be presented by Barre Ludvigsen assisted by Nada Sbaity el Zein. Ludvigsen is professor of information architecture in Norway and Sbaity is the AUB webmaster.

Participants at the May 5. workshop.
The workshops will present and touch on the following subjects:
Short introduction of myself
examples, tools and methods, questions and answers
finding and using information as examples of digitizing information. Publishing information on the net has unexpected results. Reasonable predictions about the future do become true, but always in different ways.
Take your time and go in depth on this stuff - quality but also quantity is important.
Created by the Digital Documentation Center at AUB in collaboration with Al Mashriq of Høgskolen i Østfold, Norway.
