Dean of Libraries
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Joukowsky Family University Librarian
The Brown University Library Center for Digital Scholarship and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Center for Digital Research in the Humanities provide two examples of how libraries participate in and provide leadership to the campus helping faculty develop digital projects. The Brown University Center was formed in 2009 with the reorganization of campus units, while the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Center, a joint initiative with the College of Arts and Sciences, is eight years old. This session will compare and contrast the approaches taken by these two signature centers. Mission, personnel, funding, space and projects will be highlighted. The relationship of the Centers to other colleges and units on campus, involvement of faculty in the center, and the role of the university librarian will be covered.
