Please join us for the Issues in Digital Scholarship Forum on Wednesday, April 3rd from 2:30 – 4 p.m. in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons (room 114), Bird Library. This event, the second in the series focused on Digital Scholarship and its many incarnations on campus, will feature panel presentations and discussion with three professors from the School of Information Studies who have different stories to tell about their digital work.
- Martha Garcia-Murillo will talk about her decision to self-publish her theory construction books, the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.
- David Lankes will talk about the development of the Atlas of New Librarianship, and his use of a blog as a platform for scholarship.
- Jeff Stanton will speak about his experience writing and distributing the open source electronic textbook, An Introduction to Data Science, and his recent experience teaching a MOOC that uses the book.
Sponsored by the Syracuse University Library’s Research, Collections, and Scholarly Communications unit, the series seeks to explore how scholars in different fields engage digital technologies as the subject matter of their research, in their research methods, their collaborative work, and the systems through which their research is disseminated and preserved. Additionally, we will explore the ways in which the library, the university, and its technology infrastructure can support these modes of scholarship and sustain their future.
All are welcome.
