In this webinar series, participants will learn about models and best practices related to planning and support for digital scholarship. The webinar series is designed both for those in the beginning of a planning process and for those from institutions seeking to take their program, services, and expertise to the next level. The focus will be on programs administered or jointly administered by the institution’s library. The series will utilize a broad conception of digital scholarship, encompassing support for the humanities, arts, social sciences, and sciences. CNI’s Associate Executive Director Emerita, Joan Lippincott, will host and moderate each session. Additional resources including links to suggested resources and brief campus discussion guides will be provided.
This series builds on the work that CNI and its member institutions have done around the theme of digital scholarship planning. CNI has co-hosted and co-planned 4 workshops on this theme, issued a number of reports, published articles, and hosted project briefings at in-person and virtual membership meetings.
