Discussion Announcing ACRL’s Digital Scholarship Center Interest Group Midwinter Meeting

by Steven Bell on Fri, Dec 4, 2015 at 03:49 pm

ACRL's Digital Scholarship Center Interest Group will be meeting at ALA Midwinter on Saturday, January 9 at 10:30 am at the Westin Copley Place, Essex Center Room.

ACRL's Digital Scholarship Center Interest Group will be meeting at ALA Midwinter on Saturday, January 9 at 10:30 am at the Westin Copley Place, Essex Center Room.

 In the interest of continuing our conversation about the development of, services offered and audiences reached through the Digital Scholarship Center we are pleased to announce that our Midwinter meeting will focus on building collaborative relationships with researchers. Our special guest speaker for the meeting is Alix Keener, the Digital Scholarship Librarian at the University of Michigan Library. She holds a Master of Science in Information from the University of Michigan School of Information. At U-M, Alix coordinates digital scholarship initiatives and provides support for students and faculty in all disciplines who are engaged with or curious about digital scholarship (including digital humanities).

 Please join us for “Creating Space for Collaborative Research Relationships in Digital Scholarship”. Alix will discuss her research findings published in the article “The Arrival Fallacy: Collaborative Research Relationships in the Digital Humanities,” (Digital Humanities Quarterly, vol 9, no 2, published 2015). She interviewed faculty and librarians at different institutions who work together on digital scholarship projects. Several challenges for libraries emerged: tension around the role of librarians as either collaborators or service providers, effective program planning for a diverse group of campus participants, and finding time for learning new skills. How can we think about and leverage digital scholarship centers to address these challenges (and come up with potential solutions)? In this session, we’ll compare notes on our digital scholarship support workflows and discuss the ways in which digital scholarship centers can foster collaborative research.

 We hope you can join us for a stimulating conversation with Alix and an opportunity to learn from each other how we can effectively achieve collaboration with our campus researchers.

 

Thank you.

Steven Bell, co-convener
Merinda Kaye Hensley, co-convener

Discussion Archive of first Digital Scholarship Centers fall meeeting

by Merinda Hensley on Thu, Oct 22, 2015 at 03:28 pm

Hi everyone, 

Thanks to all of you who attended our first fall online meeting this week. We had over 100 attendees and some great discussion with the speakers, Peter Logan and Liz Rodrigues, Temple University. 

A second thanks for everyone who filled out the survey after the session - Steven and I will be using your feedback to plan future sessions. It is really clear to us that there is a need for these discussions, both at the beginning level of setting up a digital scholarship center and for those of us in throes of trying to figure it all out.

RESEARCH FACULTY IN YOUR DIGITAL SCHOLARSHIP CENTER

Date: Wednesday October 21
Time: 3:00 pm EST

What are the promises and pitfalls of integrating research faculty into the planning and management of library-based DH centers? This ACRL Digital Scholarship Centers Interest Group meeting provides two fresh perspectives on the issue, one from the Academic director of Temple Library’s new Digital Scholarship Center, and the other from a humanities research post-doc there. Short presentations will discuss the structuring of program offerings, the development of a research program, and the collaboration between faculty members and academic librarians, followed by Q&A. Join Merinda Hensley and Steven Bell, Co-Conveners of the Digital Scholarship Centers Interest Group, as they invite their two guests, Dr. Peter Logan and Liz Rodrigues, to tell us more about bringing faculty and fellows into the digital scholarship center.

Dr. Peter Logan is a specialist in 19th-century British literature and the history and theory of the novel. As Director of the Center for the Humanities at Temple in 2013, he worked with the Digital Library Initiatives Department of Temple Libraries to create a year-long program training graduate students in the fundamentals of digital research methods. As Academic Director of the Temple Libraries Digital Scholarship Center he will shape the Center’s programs and offerings. 

Dr. Liz Rodrigues completed her Ph.D. in English at the University of Michigan in 2015 and joins the Temple Digital Scholarship Center as a postdoctoral fellow. Her past digital projects have included the development of a set of interactive online tools for teaching the revision process and building digital collections to highlight student work.

Discussion Volunteers - Digital Scholarship Centers Clearinghouse

by Merinda Hensley on Mon, Jul 20, 2015 at 12:42 pm

Hello everyone,

We are looking for willing volunteers to help with creating a clearinghouse of resources related to digital scholarship centers. There is much interest in the membership to see how libraries are approaching creating and developing digital scholarship centers (DSC). Steven and I are envisioning a series of open documents that pull together example DSC and their corresponding websites, readings about DSC, and other related materials.

Location: Hilton SF Union Square, Franciscan C/D

All ALA members welcome.

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.

 Please join us for two presentations about Digital Scholarship Centers:

 Digital Scholarship Centers: Three Questions

Joan Lippincott, Coalition for Networked Information

 The Coalition for Networked Information's Joan Lippincott will describe some findings from CNI's work on trends in digital scholarship centers and her own observations from interviews and on-site visits. The presentation will focus on three questions: 1) Are there commonalities among what various libraries call digital scholarship centers?  2) Do centers offer service, expertise, or both? 3) What is the role of physical facilities and equipment in digital scholarship centers?

 DSS @ NYU: Digital Scholarship Services in the NYU Libraries

With  April M. Hathcock, Scholarly Communications Librarian and Zach Coble, Digital Scholarship Specialist

 In the summer of 2013, NYU Libraries launched Digital Scholarship Services (DSS), a new service that helps NYU faculty and students incorporate digital scholarship tools and methods into their research and teaching. During this presentation, April Hathcock and Zach Coble will provide an overview of our service model, which is rooted in collaboration with other units in the library and throughout the university. We will end by highlighting some of our most recent work, including a semester’s worth of grant-funded graduate student workshops and public lectures centered around digital humanities research and methodologies.
