Session Title

From DH to DS: Cultivating and Sustaining Digital Scholarship at a Small Institution

Description

R&I librarians and instructional technologists at St. Olaf College are aligning services and resources to support digital humanities. As we enter the second year of a four-year Mellon grant supporting DH, we have already begun to develop strategies for sustaining a lively DH program after the grant ends and for leveraging our work on DH to create broader opportunities in support of digital scholarship and digital pedagogy. In this presentation, we will discuss the key factors we have identified thus far for cultivating and sustaining digital projects, including deep collaborations between librarians and instructional technologists, partnerships with mentored undergraduate research and other “high-impact” programs on campus, well-defined workflows for project management, evolving job roles, and reimagined spaces, as well as how digital scholarship has informed our strategic planning processes in the library and information technology.
