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.
