AP StyleGuard - the newest addition to the AP Stylebook family AP StyleGuard, powered by Equiom Linguistic Labs, is a powerful yet easy solution that integrates with Microsoft Word and provides automatic checking of your documents for AP style. Using defined structure and rules similar to Word’s spelling and grammar checking, AP StyleGuard helps ensure the consistency of your writing style. It saves you the time of manually referring to the AP Stylebook and offers recommendations on items you might not have realized are covered by AP style. No matter what type of writing you do, you can rest assured that AP StyleGuard helps you stay on top of all of the current spelling, grammar, punctuation and usage guidelines from the journalist’s bible. StyleGuard includes current AP Stylebook guidance, with rules updated throughout the year to keep your writing covered by new additions and changes responding to news events and the evolution of the language.
Last week I presented at the Great Lakes College Association’s New Directions workshop on digital humanities (DH), where I tried to answer the question “Why the digital humanities?” But I discovered that an equally important question is “How do you do the digital humanities”? Although participants seemed to be excited about the potential of digital humanities, some weren’t sure how to get started and where to go for support and training. Building on the slides I presented at the workshop, I’d like to offer some ideas for how a newcomer might get acquainted with the community and dive into DH work. I should emphasize that many in the DH community are to some extent self-taught and/or gained their knowledge through work on projects rather than through formal training. In my view, what’s most important is being open-minded, experimental, and playful, as well as grounding your learning in a specific project and finding insightful people with whom can you discuss your work.
