91 SPEC Kit 350: Supporting Digital Scholarship
We are currently co-hosting a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellow in Metadata Creation for Visual and
Material Culture with the Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies who provides support for
digital scholarship.
We are expecting to begin a university press within the next year.
We maintain the institutional repository—it’s an important part of our digital scholarship operations.
We partner as needed.
We typically draw from the “other unit/entity” for core IT supplies, network, and non-preservation
storage. Archives and institutional repository are library units.
