Since its beta launch in 2016, Tropy has become essential software used by thousands of humanities researchers around the world, a powerful tool for managing and exploring research photos. With Tropy, researchers can effectively manage thousands of digital images taken at archives and libraries. Once the research photos are imported to Tropy desktop application, users can combine them into items, attach descriptive metadata and notes to them. In a Tropy project, users work with a friendly editing interface that allows customized metadata templates to enhance artifacts contextualization. Tags and lists are also available to increase users control over a project according to their specific needs. Beyond organizing and describing research photos, Tropy helps researchers to search all their project information, notes and tags. Finally, the tool offers different possibilities to export research projects to other platforms.
In this workshop, you will learn about Tropy basic and advanced features following a step-by-step demonstration on how to create a project, import items, group items, describe and annotate your sources. By the end of this event, participants will have a comprehensive overview of Tropy's main features and how the tool could impact their research workflow.
The session is led by Dr Anita Lucchesi who is Education & Outreach Coordinator for the Tropy project: https://www.c2dh.uni.lu/people/anita-lucchesi
