Bamboo is a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary, and inter-organizational effort to bring together researchers in arts and humanities, computer and information scientists, librarians, and campus information technologists to collectively tackle this question:
How can we enhance arts and humanities research through the development of shared technology services?
This presentation will introduce the Bamboo Planning Project, an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded planning and community design program where, through a series of conversations and workshops over 18 months, participants will map out scholarly practices and common technology challenges across and among disciplines, and discover where a coordinated, cross-disciplinary development effort can best foster academic innovation.
