The Library recently hired Spencer Roberts as Digital Scholarship Librarian to provide consultation and support for digital projects, research, and publication. Conveniently located in CURVE on the 2nd floor of Library South, Spencer’s office is open to faculty, students, and staff who have questions about what’s possible with digital scholarship, have ideas about digital projects, or would like support for an existing project. Anyone seeking a partnership with the Library on a digital project can schedule an appointment or drop in to discuss opportunities.
Digital project consultation can include topics such as funding, planning, assessment, publishing, research methods, resource management, user testing, web hosting, and training.
