Kicking off the series, Harriette Hemmasi, Georgetown University and Keith Webster, Carnegie Mellon University, will describe the changing nature of research, the need for new kinds of partnerships, and the role of libraries in this environment. A panel discussion in the final session of the series will look back and look ahead at digital scholarship services in libraries and will feature Dan Cohen, Northeastern University, Tom Hickerson, formerly of University of Calgary, and Patricia Hswe, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Information on confirmed speakers for sessions are on the webinar site.
