Seminar Room 203

Date & Time
4th May, 2010 @ 10:00:00

The Moore Institute, in co-ordination with the Vice Dean for Graduate Studies and the Vice Dean for Research of the College of Arts, Social Sciences & Celtic Studies, would like to invite you and your PhD students to a seminar entitled ‘e-Publishing for Postgrads'.

Postgraduate students often find little guidance in getting their work published which is necessary to establish their reputation and even less guidance in using digital tools to disseminate their work beyond traditional publishers. This seminar will discuss changes taking place in the system of scholarly communication and give advice for creating scholarship that transcends traditional models of print publishing.

he seminar will be given by Kevin Hawkins, Visiting Metadata Manager with the Digital Humanities Observatory (DHO) at the Royal Irish Academy. Kevin is Electronic Publishing Librarian at the University of Michigan.

Places to attend the seminar are limited and must be booked by this coming Friday, April 30. To do so, please email marie.kennedy@nuigalway.ie with ‘e-Publishing' in the subject line.
