Learn how to create a visually-rich, interactive timeline at NEASIS&T's May meetup! We're going to walk you through using TimelineJS, an open-source, web-based timeline creation tool developed by the Northwestern University KnightLab. It is customizable and flexible with options for various skill levels.

Timelines are very useful, appealing devices for depicting a series of chronological events and pulling together a narrative. Here are a just few timeline ideas you can create during our workshop:

· the life of an elderly family member

· the plot of Gabriel García Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude

· the evolution of wireless technology

· the history of your company/organization

· the most significant character developments of your favorite tv character

· the discovery of vaccines

· the history of the MBTA
