Libraries launch Digital Scholarship & Consultation Services
The Libraries are now offering Digital Scholarship & Consultation Services (DSCS) to support the creation, curation, management and long-term access and discovery of digital content.
The consultation-based service is targeted to faculty and researchers, but is open to the entire campus community. Library staff will advise on digital collections in support of instructional and research activities and are available to answer questions, help strategize on projects, and outline options to meet goals.
The scope of Digital Scholarship & Consultation Services ranges from one-on-one consultations to group workshops regarding content for individual classes or global sharing. Examples of these services include: capturing and processing images and learning objects to support classroom and research needs; assessing copyright concerns and obtaining clearances as appropriate, and helping staff to protect their own rights; developing digital publications, including conference proceedings and journals; research data management training and data management plan preparation; creating metadata solutions that are appropriate to each purpose and project; and digitization best practices.
