Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


In the final year of their Computer Science degree, students are required to understand a substantial piece of research as part of their Honours project. This year, five students have undertaken projects inspired by Wikidata, the Glasgow Women's Library, and the Scottish Brick Museum. This poster outlines the practicalities involved in collaborating with external partners on Honours projects, as well as sharing the outputs from the students’ projects. All projects received ethical approval from the University of St Andrews School of Computer Science Ethics Committee for eliciting user feedback.
