Abstract

Academic libraries have always supported the institutional missions of teaching, research, and service or community. There are many opportunities to enhance that support in the digital environment. Digital tools are fundamental to many research activities and many students would like to use digital technologies in meaningful ways in their education. In supporting digital scholarship, libraries can promote partnerships with faculty in research and teaching. Faculty engaging in digital research frequently involve their students, often including some on their research team and then either developing some of their digital content as part of class work or using the products of their digital work in their teaching. A number of digital projects in the humanities focus on local or regional communities and foster the third prong of the institutional mission for service. At the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) we have been analyzing trends in digital scholarship and their intersection with libraries, teaching, learning, and research. This talk will report on some of the findings from our work and will identify trends and good practice.
