44 Survey Results: Survey Questions and Responses
Library Information Technology Services: 3-D modeling and printing, interface design and/or usability,
database development Conservation: Digitization/imaging of analog material Archives &Special
Collections: Digital exhibits, digital publishing
Many activities are most directly supported by a Digital Scholarship Services Unit. Publishing activities
are most directly supported by an Office of Scholarly Communication and Publishing. However,
both of these units are supported by a service “track” that includes librarians and staff from across
the organization.

Metadata templates are created in the Collections unit. Archivists creating digital exhibits are in the
Archives and Special Collections unit. All other activities are in the Technology, Discovery, and Digital
Services unit.

Interface design and/or usability (Web Services).
Most of the digital scholarship services are located within the Digital Programs &Initiatives (DPI)
unit within the Digital Services &Stewardship division in the Libraries. Included in DPI are the
institutional repository, research data services, and the library’s publishing program. Depending on the
project, subject librarians, special collections/archives, reference services, and/or metadata services
might be involved.
Our DS activity has been led by our Digital Initiatives unit, in collaboration with Library IT and
Bibliographic Services. Our new 3-D printing service has been a partnership with the Faculty of
Science, and is provided within our Science &Technology library, and supported by our Library IT
group. Our liaison librarians work closely with DS functional experts to provide DS education/outreach
re: data curation, digital publishing, and to support digitization projects.
