Defining and Sustaining Digital Collection and Scholarship Services

Feedback form is now closed.
Researchers across UC campuses are engaging in Digital Scholarship (DS), including building digital collections, with increasing frequency and across disciplines. Such scholarship includes an eclectic set of methodologies;i and researchers often rely on the library for needed subject, technical, and preservation expertise. The business models and practices that define library DS engagement are, however, in their infancy, extremely varied, and uneven.

This panel will discuss needed support for DS across a range of activities in order to better understand the challenges we are facing from service level, organizational, and business model perspectives. In advance of the conference, each panelist will prepare a brief, written statement that address the following questions:

-What current use cases demonstrate a need for DS services? 
-What are the demographics of the patrons we are serving? 
-Who are we missing? 
-How are digital outputs changing our collection and preservation strategies and what changes should we make in the future? 
-What additional or re-deployed resources and labor will be required to provide necessary services? 
-Are current and imagined services sustainable compared to more traditional library services?

During the panel, panelists will participate in a moderated discussion of the major themes that emerge from the written statements. Panel attendees will be invited to join the discussion for the final 15 minutes of the panel. Panelist responses to discussion questions will be published one week prior to the conference at http://ds.lib.ucdavis.edu/ucdlf/.

I'm a librarian, administrator and researcher who cares about how libraries impact our daily lives. I have a passion for structured data and can be easily drawn into a conversation about why we focus so much library energy on metadata and information systems.
