With Professor Eric T. Meyer
22 Nov 2016
With Professor Eric T. Meyer

In their 2015 book Knowledge Machines: Digital Transformations of the Sciences and Humanities, Eric Meyer and co-author Ralph Schroeder argue that digital technologies have fundamentally changed research practices in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

In this talk, Meyer will discuss evidence from a series of projects examining digital practices of knowledge creation, information sharing, and resource use, and will put these in the context of what challenges they raise for libraries, museums, galleries, and other memory institutions.
