Librarians and Scholars: Partners in Digital Humanities (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

Librarians and Scholars: Partners in Digital Humanities (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

Approaches to promoting digital humanities work varies from institution to institution — some have centers or hubs on campus or in libraries, others have coordinated programs and initiatives, and many have neither. The challenge for researchers interested in pursuing digital humanities work is to create a path forward and identify resources to help them at each stage of the scholarly process. Libraries are particularly well suited to meeting the needs of digital humanists by uniting diverse disciplines, facilitating dialogue, promoting ideals such as open access and preservation, and championing scholarly and pedagogical innovations. Indeed, we suggest that libraries can play a key role in supporting and promoting digital humanities scholarship, especially on decentralized campuses.

The Universal Library Is Us: Library Work at Scale in HathiTrust (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

The Universal Library Is Us: Library Work at Scale in HathiTrust (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

When major research libraries pooled resources in 2008 to launch HathiTrust—today one of the largest collaborative library initiatives in the world—they knew that they were on to something big. For more than a decade, the potential of digitization and digital technologies to dramatically enhance library access and preservation services had been moving from the periphery to the very center of library future-planning. Confronted on the one hand with increasing budgetary pressures and on the other with increasing demands for greater access to a broader range of collections, libraries quickly came to appreciate that the future would be not only digital, but largely shared as well. Collaboration would be essential if libraries, with limited resources, were to continue to provide traditional services and meet new service expectations. Libraries have a long history of collaboration, but examples of, and structures for, the kinds of collaboration that could truly impact library services at scale were few.

Issues in Open Access to Research (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

The success of open government data is indisputable. By empowering data scientists as well as the general public to interrogate publicly shared government data sets, we have been able to discover new trends and correlations as well as spot malfeasance. Open data affects publicly funded academic research at a governmental and funder level as well, including the types of research supported and what happens with the data collected. Nonetheless, it took a recent statement from the Public Library of Science (PLOS) to ignite the conversation about open data between individual academic researchers.
