Dr Anne Alexander, Cambridge Digital Humanities

This CDH Basics session looks at how searching and finding technologies structure scholarship. It also covers

  • an introduction to search engines, both for web search and custom search functions within collections;
  • discussion about OCR errors and blindspots in digital search in historical collections
  • problems of fragmentation of the source text, and the legacy of pre-digital formats such as microfilm.

CDH Basics sessions are open to staff and graduate students who want to learn and apply digital methods and use digital tools in their research.

Bookings for this session are now open - link here.
