Center for Digital Inquiry and Learning Showcase a Success Thanks to Evan Williamson
March 29, 2019
The Center for Digital Inquiry and Learning (CDIL) Showcase that was rescheduled because of weather, was finally held on Wednesday, Feb. 27. In spite of the fact that the weather was still bad, the event was a big success thanks to Evan Williamson, the digital infrastructure librarian. He works with Data and Digital Services and succeeds in bringing cool projects and innovative services to life. For the CDIL showcase, he put together an event and corresponding presentation that had everyone intrigued, excited and laughing — truly experiencing the joy of the amazing work of the fellows and projects that were highlighted by the showcase.
People from all over campus were in attendance to appreciate some of the great work that's been done by CDIL fellows and learn about upcoming 2019 fellowship opportunities for faculty and students.
