Digital Brown Bag | The Benefits of Documentation -- for Undergraduates, Teams, and Collaborative Projects
Many undergraduates are eager to participate in team research but haven’t developed strong documentation and metadata organization skills. In this Digital Brown Bag, undergraduate Sandra Luksic (Philosophy and Political Science major and Project Vox team member) describes the value of good documentation in collaborative projects and how documentation became relevant and appealing to them as a research novice. They talk about embracing flexibility and uncertainty in documentation, framing information maintenance in the context of human relationships, and learning by doing.
Digital Brown Bags (hosted by Duke LIbraries' Digital Scholarship & Publishing Services) are informal presentations and talks with Duke faculty or grad students about their digital project work, with the goal of making digital project work more familiar and possible. All are welcome!
