Event description

Description

As part of the traveling exhibit, "Mapping Mexican History: Territories in Dispute, Identities in Question" currently on display at the Pecan Library at South Texas College in McAllen, TX, South Texas College will host a FREE workshop on using digital tools for research.

Using historical Mexican maps held at the University of Texas at Austin’s Benson Latin American Collection, we will introduce StoryMapJS, a straightforward web-based authoring platform for the presentation of map and visual material analyses. We will show you how to create a set of zoomable images, host them on Github, and bring them into StoryMapJS to create a dynamic visual-based story.

**No prior knowledge necessary and students/faculty from any discipline are encouraged to attend.**

Parking available on campus (no citations will be issued for guests). Lunch will be served. Space is limited to 30 people. Registration closes Wednesday, September 13.

Workshops will be led by Itza Carbajal (Master of Science in Information Studies Candidate) and Albert A. Palacios (LLILAS Benson Digital Scholarship Coordinator) from The University of Texas at Austin.
