Planning a Digital Scholarship Center: A CNI-ARL Workshop

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 @ 1:00 pmWednesday, May 18, 2016 @ 4:30 pm

Patrick Ma Digital Scholarship Lab, Brown University Library

An increasing number of institutions are planning programs and spaces they call digital scholarship centers, scholars’ labs, research commons, or similar names. Often these centers are located in and administered by academic libraries, in contrast to faculty-run institutes. While some centers focus on digital humanities, many work with a broader range of disciplines, supporting e-science and digital research in the social sciences. During the planning and early implementation process for a center, there are many decisions to be made about the mission, programs, partnerships, staffing, technologies, as well as the physical space of the center.

This workshop will assist institutions in the process of planning digital scholarship centers, not by offering one solution but by presenting a variety of models that will help institutions make informed choices that address institutional needs and priorities. The event will include a combination of presentations by invited speakers, group discussions, and hands-on exercises.
