Strategy for promotion/outreach
This data will be used as part of our strategic planning process, with some of the recommendations in
the strategic plan focused on expanding digital scholarship services.
We are developing more capacity for digital preservation.
We are embarking on a reorganization that is anticipated to result in organizational changes.
We are shifting more efforts toward digital scholarship support in connection with our strategic plan,
which calls for more activities related to educational technologies.
We did do some hiring and some staff reallocations to support this work based on early efforts to
support digital scholarship.
What we initially planned to offer in the physical space has changed some as we’ve been slower to
ramp up services. We have also toyed with offering digital storytelling in the space, which would be a
new service.
Yes. Support for digital scholarship is provided by many entities across the Libraries and Information
Technology Services (LITS) enterprise. New partnership pathways are being defined and refined to
better accommodate this blended support model.
