Please join ITS and the Library for a series of Spring events at the Arts and Humanities Resource Center (201 Bartlett Hall). Every month, we hold First Thursday at the AHRC, a social event that features wine, fine meats and cheeses, and conversation about teaching, technology and research. This spring term, First Thursday will be held on the following days:

  • April 7th, 4:30-5:30 pm
  • May 5th, 4:30-5:30 pm
  • June 2nd, 4:30-5:30 pm

Twice a term, ITS and the Library also host a Digital Seminar event at the AHRC. The seminars are always organized around a topic and feature short presentations from faculty and staff and a Q&A with the audience. Topics for previous Digital Seminars include virtual reality, digital exhibitions, digital annotation, and teaching with social media. For updates about these events and other happenings at the AHRC, please join the Dartmouth DH mailing list! To do so,  send an email to digital.humanities.support@dartmouth.edu with the subject heading "DH List".

Starting in fall term 2015, the Arts and Humanities Resource Center (201 Bartlett Hall) will offer office hours staffed by Educational Technologies, Research Computing, the Library, Jones Media Center, Rauner, and the Hood. This initiative has been organized to promote a collaborative approach to supporting teaching, learning, and research at Dartmouth, and to leverage the serpendipitous exchanges that frequently occur in the center. For example, you might come to the AHRC to speak with Jill Baron, the Library Liaison for romance languages, but also have the chance to discuss a media project with Susan Simon from Jones. Or you might be looking for desktop support from Robien Wymans or Christina Swaan, the two Academic Technology Consultants who support departments in the Arts and Humanities, but end up discussing mapping in your research project with Steve Gaughn, Research Computing's new GIS Specialist.
