This is a past event.

Wednesday, October 25, 2023 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Virtual Event

The Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC), founded in 2004, is a cooperative digital library consisting of over 4,000,000 pages of cultural, historical, and research materials from the Caribbean and circum-Caribbean. It is an ideal place to start for research projects on Caribbean history, culture, and society, with materials ranging from newspapers to teaching materials. Florida International University is also a founding partner of dLOC, and has contributed much content, knowledge, and effort towards its fruition.

This workshop, geared towards faculty and students, is an introduction to using the site to aid research projects and course design. Led by FIU Libraries’ dLOC Outreach Program Manager, Katie Coldiron, it will follow a semi-interactive format, with attendees encouraged to ask questions and talk about their own research interests, courses, and projects.
