Spring Practicum Series

Spring Practicum Series

We’re delighted to share the spring dates for the WWP’s practicum series of two-hour workshops focused on particular skills and tools. Each session will be held from 12 to 2pm in the Digital Scholarship Commons in Snell Library. In the spring, we will be offering:

  • February 5: An XPath Excursion. This session will cover the basics of exploring and querying XML documents using XPath; we will navigate the document tree, limit our results to meet specific criteria, and discuss ways to take advantage of oXygen’s tools for XPath.
  • March 19: Regular Expressions for the Rest of Us. This session will cover search and replace with regular expressions, a very powerful way to search for patterns in text documents.
  • April 9: XPath XTreme. This session will cover more detailed use of XPath, including functions that make use of regular expressions, building on the topics discussed in the first two sessions.

These sessions are free and open to the public, but guests from outside the NU community should email Sarah Connell (sa.connell[at]northeastern[dot]edu) to arrange library access.

We hope to see you there!
