Building Research Confidence in the Humanities: Tropy - A Tool for Managing Your Research Photos

10:00 am – 11:00 am
Zoom, registration required
Janel Simons,
Tropy is a free, open-source software designed for research photo management. With features that allow researchers to create robust descriptions of their materials, Tropy has the potential to be useful to a range of humanities researchers. In this workshop we will consider it as a tool for organizing and describing humanities research images. Participants will be given a brief overview of Tropy’s functionality, learn about common problems in describing and organizing their research photo collections, and explore ways to use Tropy for their own research materials.

The UNL Libraries is excited to launch the workshop series “Building Research Confidence in the Humanities.” Covering topics ranging from finding and organizing primary materials, locating and managing scholarly sources, and analyzing resources, to making decisions about presentation and publication, this nine-session series will introduce humanities researchers to a range of tools, resources, and techniques for growing their research practice.

The target audience for this series is graduate students in the humanities who are starting out in advanced research or who want to level up their research skills at any time in their graduate program. Examples, tools, and points of reference will speak to research in the humanities and focus on research at the graduate level and beyond. While we want participants to be aware of this target audience to help set expectations, all UNL students, faculty, and staff are welcome.

Registration is required.
