Though we know your time here at the J-School is short and packed, these workshops are something that you can work into your schedule to help you while you are here at Columbia and beyond! Check them out and sign up for the ones you can. We want to make sure you have all the tools you need to be successful!
We are excited to announce the 2nd annual Data Visualization Contest for the Journalism Library! Submit your data visualizations to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Monday, May 5th to be included. (Only CU Journalism students are eligible for this contest.)
The winning entry will be printed as a poster and displayed with your name (and the project URL, where applicable) in the Journalism Library. The winner will also receive a $25 Starbucks giftcard, have your project showcased on the Libraries’ Digital Center Projects webpage, and the opportunity to archive your work in Columbia University Libraries’ Academic Commons. This is not only a chance to get your work reviewed by a panel of faculty and library experts; it’s also an opportunity for greater exposure for your work. Last year’s winner, Jefferson Mok, went on to have his project picked up by CNN!
