In class today we spent time developing research topics, and everyone had one-on-one time with the instructors to develop the research question. We looked briefly at the Digital Collections of the NYPL and spent some time with the map warper, which allows users to see the contemporary city map and the historic map simultaneously.
Site report #2a is due Thursday and part #2b due 3/26.
This Thursday, come prepared to work on your midterm presentation and also decide which day you plan to present: Tuesday, March 26 or Thursday, March 28. Presentations should be between 7-10 minutes long, including questions/discussion.
