Digitization has enormous potential to bring local history collections to a wider audience, often through academic and public library partnerships. In this session participants will hear from several successful collaborations funded through IMLS that highlight promising practices for the wider dissemination of digitized collections. Panelists will share tools they leveraged to bring their materials to researchers, students, and the general public, as well as evidence of how these collections are being used in unanticipated ways.
Discover a new group publishing model that supports academic librarians in tenure-track positions. Listen as newly tenured and new tenure-track faculty librarians demonstrate their model and provide the tools you need to bring the model back to your own library environment. From the research brainstorming step through journal selection and the submission process, you will learn to tackle publishing obstacles such as the Institutional Review Board application, fair work distribution, group organization, and clear communication.
