The Humbul Humanities Hub finds and describes online resources for
teaching and research in humanities subjects. This one-day seminar will introduce participants to the discovery, evaluation and cataloguing of online humanities resources, making use of Humbul's cataloguing systems. Humbul's catalogue, however, is not merely a static repository of descriptions and metadata. It is also an active tool for use in teaching and learning. Participants will be introduced to the 'My Humbul' set of services and shown how to select sets of records within Humbul, provide personalised annotations, and re-use these sets within their own Web pages.
Humbul, based at Oxford University, is part of the Resource Discovery
Network, which is dedicated to discovering, cataloguing and providing easy access to quality online resources for higher and further education.
The seminar will comprise a mixture of formal presentations and practical sessions. Teaching will be carried out by Humbul staff and the seminar will take place at Oxford University Computing Services, 13 Banbury Road, Oxford, UK.
Who should attend:
This seminar will be of use to humanities researchers, teachers and
librarians and academic support staff.
The workshop costs 65 pounds sterling or 35 pounds sterling for students.
A booking form and further details about this event and other seminars taking place during that week are available on our website.
