What does “digital scholarship” mean? Is it scholarly publishing, data management, digital humanities, makerspaces? What kinds of human and technical resources should a library have to support a new program in a liberal arts college library? How should the library strike a balance between sustainability and experimentation in approaching these expanded library activities? Who should be involved in this new program? These are the questions I’ll address in the first 45 minutes. In the workshop portion of the session, participants will gain experience developing rough plans that are appropriate for their own institutional contexts, and talking through some of the pitfalls an benefits of specific approaches.
