You have been introduced to Mississippi State University Libraries’ Special Collections and shown items relating to text you have read for EN3414. Primary resources provide historical context and provide authority to your interpretation of the texts. Using items from MSU Libraries Digital Library or approved digital archives/ libraries you will create a Digital Humanities (DH) project using items from these collections. (You may pick items, but you should discuss the relevancy of the items in your consultation with the archivists)
You will be in groups of 2-3. You will have the chance to grade your team members. Each group will meet, outside of class, with Special Collections Librarians to complete their assignment. You will sign up for a time to meet by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind Special Collections have special hours:
Monday - Friday
7:30am - 5:00pm
When you email Special Collections state the collections you would like to use for your project, as well as the text & theme you are focusing on.
We will have dedicated in-class day to work on the DH project on Nov. 6.
