In the workshop, led by Helsinki University’s own Gale Student Ambassador Pauli Kettunen, you will receive a brief introduction into the archives, as well as tips on accessing and using them for your own research.

Learn to use Digital Humanities tools of Gale Digital Scholar Lab, which help you to analyze your corpus of documents with visualization tools. There is also time for workshopping your own ideas, asking questions and working together to find out how Gale’s sources could best support you in your work.
