DAAO is hitting the road! Dr Gillian Fuller will be leading a series of site testing and training workshops across the country from May through to July 2015.

Gillian will be running sessions on how the DAAO works, how to get involved and how the database supports new approaches to research. She will also be leading data salons, which are a great way of bringing your research community together.

The research and testing roadshow is all about gathering feedback from the community on our current site developments. In addition to building long-term scholarly relationships, we are enhancing the site’s social features and improving researcher functionality. As we are constantly working towards a more substantial and relevant coverage of Australian art, we need to ensure that we are meeting the needs of the DAAO community.

As funding tightens, user-driven models of preserving our cultural heritage are becoming increasingly important. These sessions are the perfect introduction to e-research and digital humanities. In a rapidly changing academic environment, online visibility is the key to launching a successful career. If you are interested in hosting an event, please contact: daao@unsw.edu.au

Here is a list of preliminary dates. More to come!
