The Winter 2013 supplementary electronic edition of the Academic Exchange, enhanced with multimedia and interactive content, is now available on the Apple iBookstore. This edition contains four essays from the Fall 2012 print issue that now include videos, interactive maps, and more.
In a feature on teaching with the iPad, view interviews with Donna Troka, adjunct assistant professor in the ILA, and her students in her course From Archives to iPads: Investigating the Discourse of Sexuality at Emory, as well as materials they have unearthed in the Emory archives. Also see short videos produced by students in lecturer and journalist-in-residence Sissel McCarthy's Advanced News Writing and Reporting course.
In a feature based on two essays about the many ways libraries on campus are being re-imagined and re-invented as digital and collaborative spaces, experience 3-D visualization tours of Samothrace, the sanctuary of the great gods, and ancient Rome as documented in Pirro Ligoria’s 1561 map. Also examine Atlanta maps from 1878 and 1928, and take a video tour of the newly renovated Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library.
