Upcoming panel discussion: Framing the digital

dp logoWelcome back to another year of Digital Pragmata! This year we are focusing on “seeing data,” and what it means to make content visible. How do we foreground the narrative of digital projects? How do we make data make sense? How do digital project interfaces embody the stories that they are designed to tell?

Our panelists will be Jeremy Boggs, Design Architect, Scholar’s Lab, University of Virginia; Greg Crawford, Local Records Services Program Manager, Library of Virginia; Kathy Jordan, Digital Initiatives & Web Services Manager, Library of Virginia.
