Join the Scalar team June 24-28 for a week-long summer workshop at USC Libraries
in Los Angeles, California.

This five-day workshop is designed for librarians and others who wish to support
the use of Scalar for born-digital scholarship and cutting-edge, collections-
based digital pedagogy on their campus as well as those who wish to develop
