[Dhcenterstartup] Dhcenterstartup Digest, Vol 2, Issue 1

Lynne,

We are in the process of planning for a yet-to-be-named space that will
encompass many things, including digital scholarship. We just did a whole
series of interviews with faculty to make sure we are on the right track in
planning for this space, and also to see what would get them out of their
offices to go there.

What came out of those conversations was a desire to have programming that
explains not only how to use DH tools, but why we would use them, and also
best practices. This brings people with shared interests together, instead
of siloing them in their offices. I also think this space will allow us to
provide more advanced technology that our faculty may not have available in
their offices (large format scanning/printing, for example) in addition to
reservable rooms that they can use to work on long term projects and leave
them behind closed doors. Additionally, we hope to hire academic
technologists who have certain areas of expertise and can thus consult with
faculty on their project needs and guide them toward the right tools.

I'll be very curious to hear what others have to say as we are still in the
planning process ourselves.

Thanks,
Beth
