Past the First Bend in the Road: Reflections on the Development of Digital Scholarship Programs From Five Institutions

Session Type: Presentation

Session Description
Each of the five institutions represented on this panel has recently participated in a project or initiative that expands the reach and function of their respective digital scholarship programs. These programs are now past the first bend in the road and all are working through the challenges of increased responsibility and expectation that follow any successful start-up phase. Panel members will address the topic of sustaining new initiatives through their particular institutional experiences ranging from building communities to creating unified library spaces to integrating with a new campus curriculum. After brief presentations, the panel will engage in a moderated discussion with the audience to identify and address strategies for meeting the logistical and organizational challenges of novel endeavors in libraries.
