Planning a Digital Scholarship Center 2016
A CNI-ARL Workshop
Prior to coming to the workshop, we are asking you to complete some work at your institution and create a brief summary of your findings. If you are coming as an institutional team, you can post one response from your team. This information will be shared with all workshop participants.
Please base your summary on the following information:
- Collect and review any planning documents that would assist you in understanding what already exists or is planned for your institution and also what unmet needs your institution may have for a digital scholarship center. Such documents might include university and/or library vision statements, strategic planning documents, descriptions of research institutes on campus that may have an overlapping mission with a digital scholarship center, or university initiatives to recruit more faculty involved in digital scholarship.
- Interview at least two individuals (or groups) on campus who are either currently involved in digital scholarship or have expressed some interest in becoming involved in digital scholarship. You might ask about: research interests, types of content used, tools currently used, infrastructure needs, publication strategies, existing support, needed support.
