Dear EBSS colleagues,

Please join us for our Spring Current Topics Discussion on Digital Scholarship and Libraries: Mission and Models.

Date: Wednesday, March 28 at 1:00 PM CST (11:00 AM Pacific Time and 2:00 PM EST)

Access at: https://acrl.webex.com/acrl/onstage/g.php?MTID=ea6c6443aa2a5538f09ac18bbb2dd61f1

Presenter:  Joan K. Lippincott, Ph.D.

She serves on the boards of the journal portal, The Reference Librarian, and the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) and on the advisory board of the Journal of Learning Spaces. She served on the board of the New Media Consortium (NMC) and on its advisory boards for the Horizon Report for both higher education and libraries. Joan is the current editor of the EDUCAUSE Review E-Content column. She is past chair of the Association of College & Research Libraries’ (ACRL) New Publications Board, and served as a member of the ACRL Information Literacy Competency Standards Review Task Force that produced the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.  She has served on the Advisory Boards ofthe Learning Spaces Collaboratory, the Learning Space Toolkit project, and the EDUCAUSE ELI Seeking Evidence of Impact project. Joan has served as a consultant to many academic libraries for their space renovation projects and has been on the planning committee for the Designing Libraries for the 21st Century conference since its inception. Prior to joining CNI, Joan was a librarian at Cornell, Georgetown, and George Washington universities, and SUNY Brockport.  Joan received her Ph.D. in higher education policy, planning, and administration from the University of Maryland, an M.L.S. from SUNY Geneseo, and an A.B. from Vassar College. She also completed graduate work at George Washington University and Cornell University.

Topic:

Providing expertise in the library for faculty, graduate students, and upper level undergraduates seeking assistance with digital scholarship projects is becoming increasingly common. Digital scholarship projects may emerge from faculty research interests, may be a component of classroom assignments, or may be the products of theses or capstone work. In any of these cases, the library’s involvement is a natural extension of its role in support of the university or college’s mission. Joan Lippincott will provide a brief overview of examples of the variety of products using digital scholarship tools and methodologies, followed by a description of digital scholarship centers in libraries, informed by her work at the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). She will then focus on the distinctions between library-administered digital scholarship centers and those administered through faculty groups, departments, or colleges. As libraries embark on planning for digital scholarship, it is important to understand some of these distinctions, make informed choices, and set up appropriate structures and arrangements.
