Bringing Together Digital Humanities Scholars and Librarians:an affiliation between centerNet and the Council on Libraries and Information Resources Digital Library Federation program
On January 22, 2011 a meeting was held at the Council on Libraries and Information Resources (CLIR) offices to discuss the possibility of a formal alliance between CLIR’s Digital Library Federation Program (DLF) and centerNet. In attendance were the following: Rachel Frick, Neil Fraistat, Julia Flanders, Kay Walter, Bethany Nowviskie, Jennifer Vinopal, and Geneva Henry. The affiliation proposal was approved by the centerNet Board, Februrary 2011.
The affiliation focuses on areas where Digital Libraries and Digital Humanities converge and need further exploration and understanding of each community’s roles and responsibilities. Where does the work of digital humanities scholars and that of digital libraries intersect and complement each other? What are each community’s values, and how do they define their roles, and responsibilities? How can we work together, effectively, to come to a shared understanding and help each other in our related endeavors?
Points of interest initially identified were as follows:
Proposed actions included:
