The Evolution of Digitizing Lili Elbe's Man Into Woman: Emily Datskou & Danielle Richards
The Man Into Woman project is the digitization of the 6 editions of Lili Elbe’s Man Into Woman, originally Fra Mand til Kvinde (1931), the first full-length narrative of a subject who undergoes a surgical change in sex. The project began in 2016 and is the result of interdepartmental collaboration that includes NTTs, undergraduates, faculty, university staff, and graduate students. Our presentation will look at the processes of collaboration across departments and media, how to facilitate undergraduate assistance and partnership with faculty and graduate students, and strategies for training individuals of all backgrounds in digital resource and software. 


Babes in the Woods: Peddling Scottish Chapbooks in the Classroom at the University of Guelph: Melissa McAfee
Digital pedagogy and experiential learning projects are a fast growing component of outreach in Archival & Special Collections at the University of Guelph. This presentation will provide an overview of The Scottish Chapbook Project, an experiential learning project that was developed as a partnership between librarians and undergraduate students and faculty in the History Department at the University of Guelph.  Through experiential learning projects with The Scottish Chapbook Project, students have learned how to interpret and contextualize original and primary sources; protocols for using original and digital primary source materials; and how to develop online repositories and curate online exhibits.
