Founded with donations from the Women in Engineering (WiE) Society at the University of New Brunswick, this collection aims to promote leadership, creativity, and professional development.

The collection has its own location code (ENG-WIE) and will be maintained in a prominent spot in the library to facilitate browsing.

DocTalks Workshop #3 – May 25th

THE HISTORY AND EVOLUTION OF DOCUMENTARY FILM

12:00 PM – 1:00 PM,  MAY 25, 2017
UNB HARRIET IRVING LIBRARY, MILHAM ROOM (#100)

Presenter: Dr. Scott Preston, Assistant Professor, UNB

This workshop will introduce researchers to the history and evolution of the documentary as a form, from its beginnings up to today. We will consider what distinguishes a documentary from other kinds of film and video productions, and how the documentary is expanded by new digital media. Finally, we will consider in particular the different ways that academic researchers have participated in the making of documentaries throughout its history and into the present. I hope this will inspire some of you to consider using this form to disseminate your own research.

Early English Books Online

Early English Books Online (EEBO), the premier resource for Early Modern English primary sources in English, has recently expanded in scope through the addition of the Text Creation Partnership (TCP) full text feature.  The majority of the documents in the database have been transcribed allowing for more efficient and detailed searching as well as digital humanities applications such as “text mining”.  EEBO features over 125,000 titles available in digital images including virtually every printed work from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and British North America spanning from the years 1473 to 1700.  The TCP has been a long term, collaborative project and is now available through UNB Libraries.
