Problems in Digital Publishing: Defining and Managing Workflows [Digital Publishing Workshop]
Managing a digital publishing project can be overwhelming; digital tools, while helpful, aren’t necessarily going to help if it’s not clear what the challenge is. Managing content, managing people, and managing timelines are all assisted by clear workflows, appropriate tools, and documentation. We’ll look at different needs and tools for coordinating digital publishing workflows, with specific attention to cross-platform integration (Google Drive, Box, etc) and the ease of adapting their affordances to common parts of the digital scholarship lifecycle.
The Digital Publishing Workshop series invites faculty, graduate students, and staff to explore digital publishing topics through informal workshops focused on specific concepts or tools. Hosted by Duke Libraries Digital Scholarship Services and co-sponsored by Trinity Technology Services, this series will help participants learn about practical ways to plan, develop, and contribute to digital publishing projects in the humanities.
Sessions feature brief topic overviews and tool demonstrations with open Q&A. Presenters will also highlight resources in the Libraries and at Duke for pursuing further work. Following each workshop, participants are welcome to linger in the Studio for hands-on practice or follow-up consultations.
