SPEC Survey Webcast on Supporting Digital Scholarship

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 @ 1:00 pm1:45 pm

spec-kit-350-cover-140x105The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) is offering a series of webcasts that present the findings from the latest SPEC surveys and allow webcast participants to discuss trends with the survey authors. A 45-minute webcast will follow the publication of each SPEC Kit in 2016.

The next webcast in this series will cover the Supporting Digital Scholarship survey (SPEC Kit 350), which explores the types of support libraries offer researchers, how the individuals involved in digital scholarship activities are positioned within the library organization, their range of responsibilities, collaboration with partners inside and outside the library, how support for digitial scholarhip activities is funded, and how it is assessed, among other questions.

The Supporting Digital Scholarship webcast will review survey findings reported by ARL member libraries in January 2016. The survey author will:

  • provide an overview of support for digital scholarship activities in ARL member libraries;
  • discuss the roles of library staff and faculty who do this work;
  • talk about how staff are organized and how support is often distributed across the institution; and
  • review recommendations and present a glimpse into future roles in supporting digital scholarship.

The webcast will also include a discussion of promising trends and conclude with a question-and-answer session.

Read the freely available executive summary of the survey results in advance and have your questions ready.
