1 Million views! Holy smokes.
It feels like just yesterday (September 2017 to be more accurate) that we set up the EMOttawa Blog here, with the goal of spreading Digital Scholarship and Knowledge Dissemination in the spirit of #FOAMed, with some of the incredible local content that we have to share.
From all of us here at EMOttawa, we wanted to take a moment to thank you – the reader – for joining us on this journey! Your comments, tweets, emails and messages have kept us inspired to continue bringing you high-yield #FOAMed content, and to continue to expand and push the borders of Digital Scholarship.
We’re pretty proud of the work that we do here at the EMOttawa Blog, and since we’re celebrating 1 million page views, we thought we’d highlight some of the content we’re the most proud of:
