Thea Lindquist deposited The Wild West: Promoting Digital Scholarship at the University of Colorado Boulder in the group Digital Humanists on Humanities Commons 6 years, 3 months ago
This poster presentation focuses on library involvement in digital scholarship at the University of Colorado Boulder. Digital scholarship offers great promise for libraries, in that it opens new dimensions for them to engage with scholars and students, participate as valuable partners in digital research lifecycle, and provide training and education opportunities that advance professional development for all. Although many institutions are finding ways to identify or reallocate funds to create and support digital initiatives, the road to get to that point is often winding. This contribution explains how a librarian-led movement to offer infrastructure, support, and partnerships for digital scholarship in the humanities at CU Boulder combined with a similar effort to support data science in Research Computing to culminate in the establishment of a campus Center for Research Data & Digital Scholarship. It focuses on the shape the Center is taking and the activities with which it is currently involved.
