Registration is open for the Digital Scholarship Planning Workshop, to be held at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island on November 8-10, 2017 and sponsored by the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI), the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and Brown University Library.
In this participatory workshop, attendees will explore models and best practices related to institutional planning and support for digital scholarship. The collaborative, interactive workshop is designed both for those in the beginning of a planning process and for those from institutions seeking to take their services and expertise to the next level. Topics will be addressed through a combination of speakers and hands-on activities and will include:
- Anticipating and assessing needs
- Governance and funding
- Initiatives in teaching & learning and research
- Student involvement
- Space and place
- Institutionalizing digital scholarship
Library administrators, individuals with direct responsibility for developing a digital scholarship program, librarians who will have a role in digital scholarship, and partners from the faculy, academic administration, and information technology units should find this workshop useful. Institutional teams are encouraged to attend; single attendees from institutions are welcome. The registration fee is $300. We expect that the 100 places for participants will fill quickly.
