PLEASE NOTE:  This is a hands-on session.  Space may be quite limited--you may be asked to double-up at workstations.  Seating is first-come, first-served.

In this workshop, you'll learn how to work with two open source timeline resources, the SIMILE project and Timeline JS. In a computer lab environment, you will  create your own timeline, and you will gain knowledge that you can take back to your work and put to use instantly.

With these easy-to-use freely available timeline tools, it is possible to create small-scale digital humanities projects and exhibits and present them on a website or a blog. Both tools can be used to engage the community with your collections or other online collections. A minimum of technical expertise is needed and these two tools are great for collaborating with colleagues, students, faculty, or others.
