Click Here for Site Report #2b – Brooklyn Collection and NYPL Map Division.
In class we spent time working on midterm presentations and talked a bit about primary sources. I updated the links post with some places to find primary sources, such as NYPL Digital Collections and the Environmental Impact Statement. Midterm presentations take place next week, and site report 2b is due by the beginning of class on Tuesday, March 26. Submit midterm slides (or Prezis) by the end of the day Thursday. In class we determined who is presenting on which day:
Tuesday, March 26:
Thursday, March 28:
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.
