As we contemplate the closure of many institutions necessary to do research this summer, maybe you're turning to the research you already have. Maybe you have taken photos of documents in an archive, or downloaded photos from the Internet, and now you don't know what to do with them. Looking at huge folders full of nameless, context-less photos can be paralyzing for a researcher.

To help with this problem, the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University has developed free, open-source software named Tropy, which helps you organize and describe your photos. It's a flexible interface that allows you to be in control of what information you want to attach to your photos to help you keep track of them. 

Ordinarily, the Tropy team does in-person training, but of course this summer we're not traveling anywhere either. So instead we're holding a webinar! The webinar is designed for people who are interested in Tropy, or need a solution to their photos problem and want to hear more. The webinar is free, but registration is required. 

The details:

Date/time: June 16, 2020, at 10:00am EDT

Location: Zoom!
