Starting from Scratch: Build Your Digital Scholarship Center Program

When: Saturday, June 25 10:30 am

Where: Orange County Convention Center W109a

Description:

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.

Speakers:

Christina Bell
Humanities Librarian
Bates College, Ladd Library

Andrew White
Director of Academic and Client Services
Bates College

Pamela Price Mitchem, M.A., Ed.S., C.A., DAS
Coordinator of Digital Scholarship and Initiatives
Special Collections, Belk Library & Information Commons
Appalachian State University 

Eric D. M. Johnson
Head, Innovative Media
Virginia Commonwealth University Libraries

Join us to hear perspectives on starting a DSC from scratch based on the experience of speakers from three different sized and mission differentiated institutions.

This program is co-sponsored in name only by the ACRL Digital Curation Interest Group and the ACRL Digital Humanities Interest Group.

Thank you.

Description: Announcing an ACRL Digital Scholarship Centers Interest Group Meeting

While there is a general understanding of what happens in Digital Scholarship Centers and the services they provide to the institution, based on conference presentations, webinars and other discussions of these Centers, there appears to be less consensus on what to call them. What is the right combination of words that will best connect with the user community and get them engaged with the Center? In some cases, the service offerings are more focused and wonder how should that impact naming. For the DSCIG spring meeting we’ve invited two colleagues, who don’t call their operation a Digital Scholarship Center, to have a conversation about the commonalities among these research and learning spaces and the services and expertise they offer. It’s part of our continuing exploration of the role of the DSC.

Speakers:
Justin Schell is Learning Design Specialist at the University of Michigan Library, where he is leading the development of the Shapiro Design Lab.

Bryan Sinclair is Associate Dean, Public Services at Georgia State University Library, where he was project lead on the building of CURVE: Collaborative University Research & Visualization Environment. His interests are in collaborative research and discovery spaces, data services, digital scholarship, and exploring new roles for librarians.

Moderator:
Meris Mandernach is Associate Professor and Head of Research Services at Ohio State University, where they just opened a Research Commons to support interdisciplinary research.

Charge

This interest group will be open to all who want to share knowledge about the development of services and space in digital scholarship centers (e.g., scholars commons, research commons, etc.). Digital scholarship centers are currently in the formative stages at a variety of types of institutions. These centers address research, teaching and learning needs across disciplines by providing services for a variety of digital research needs including digital humanities, data services and management, GIS, digitization, and scholarly communication issues. This interest group will offer a forum for individuals involved in developing digital scholarship centers to discuss the success and challenges in creating specialized support in the digital environment. Meetings of this interest group will provide an opportunity to discuss current trends, examine case studies of individual facilities, explore innovative best practices, and present successful partnerships with faculty/students and campus partners around the use of technology to enhance scholarship.
