Libraries, scholarship and pedagogy are all becoming increasingly digital, even — at a slower but increasing pace — in the humanities. How can libraries partner with instructional designers and faculty to
- use digital tools and methods for humanities scholarship?
- thoughtfully incorporate digital tools and resources into teaching?
- develop digital collections that serve, and perhaps arise from, student’s learning and research?
What are the specific challenges — and opportunities — of collaborating on these digital initiatives in AMICAL members’ international-American educational environments?
AMICAL 2016: “Libraries and digital initiatives”
Join us 12-14 May as we confront these questions at the 2016 AMICAL Annual Meeting & Conference.
Invited speakers will inspire and provoke us:
- Laurie Allen (Assistant Director for Digital Scholarship, University of Pennsylvania)
- Jim Groom (Co-founder, Reclaim Hosting)
- Eric Lease-Morgan (Digital Initiatives Librarian, University of Notre Dame)
And AMICAL members will share their own expertise and questions, as we grapple with digital initiatives and other issues shared across our consortium.
