DevonThink is a powerful database program that offers an easy way to manage any kind of file formats, from text, image, to audio files. In this BBL, Carolin will show how to use DevonThink specifically for storing, converting, and sorting primary sources that one obtains from various archives and libraries, and how to make use of DevonThink during the writing process. If you like, download a free trial version of DevonThink on your computer and follow along the demonstration.

About This Series
Brown Bag Lunch is a bi-weekly meeting of researchers at the MPIWG who use or want to learn more about digital research methods, broadly encompassed by the term Digital Humanities. In the Brown Bag Lunch meetings, researchers can discuss tools, share ideas and experiences (good and bad), and learn from each other. Each session explores a new topic; workshops are usually interactive, and we often invite external speakers. Please feel free to bring your lunch, and a laptop or notebook in order to participate!
