Where: Orange County Convention Center W109a
At prior meetings of the ACRL Digital Scholarship Center Interest Group (DSCIG) attendees have frequently asked questions about how to start a Center. What services are offered? Who works there? How much were the start-up costs and where did the funding come from? How do you promote the Center so faculty and students use it? Who are the partners? All good questions, and given how the Center is structured at different institutions the answers can vary.
This program features experienced DSC developers who will share their stories and expertise about how they got started, what they learned and what they’d do today if they were starting from scratch. Who should attend? Librarians planning to develop or thinking of starting a Digital Scholarship Center at their institution, and those who want to learn more about what Digital Scholarship Centers are and what they offer. Librarians more experienced with Digital Scholarship Centers are invited to join the conversation, share tips and meet colleagues from other Centers.
