When Text Isn’t Enough: An Exploration into the World of Multimodal Scholarship in the Digital Arts, Sciences and Humanities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Increasingly, scholars are producing works in non-traditional genres and mediums, published using alternative platforms. This presentation will describe some of the trends and unique affordances of multimodal scholarship across the digital arts, sciences and humanities domains.

Finally, we will discuss the potential implications of these emerging areas of scholarship on librarians and library services.
