Monday, February 23, 10:00-10:45 AM in room 103. Sign up here.

As the digital humanities explore new frontiers for thinking about scholarship, new solutions for managing this content in flexible environments are a key part of ensuring the longevity of this research.

Collaborative Collection Development: Engaging Users in Acquiring and Describing Collections using Artstor’s Shared Shelf

Tuesday, February 24, 10:45-11:30 AM in room 104. Sign up here.

This session will introduce Shared Shelf, Artstor’s web-based digital media management system, and highlight the work of librarians who use the platform to engage users in hands-on collection building and collaborative cataloging to help support faculty projects and free up library time. Speakers will describe specific projects – such as one on creating supporting materials for a course in Slavic folklore – and discuss how they facilitate collaboration, ways to build partnerships with their users, as well as the tools that can be harnessed to support these processes.
