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 semesterís worth of grant-funded graduate student workshops and public lectures centered around digital humanities research and methodologies.
