Both programs are part of the Libraries’ Hacking the Academy program series, designed to highlight new trends in how scholarship is produced, archived, evaluated, and reused through a series of interdisciplinary showcases, discussions, and lectures. The program is open to students and faculty throughout the University of Washington. We hope to see you there!
