It Takes a Village: Curating Local Digital Content

Tuesday, March 22 | 12:30PM–1:20PM | Room 553
Session Type: Professional Development
The full life-cycle approach of the Bates Digital Campus (, supported by archivist, research librarians, and instructional technologists, seeks to create more cohesive development, presentation, and dissemination frameworks to make our digital scholarship available for many audiences. Members of the Bates Digital Campus will present a case study of the successful implementation of digital scholarship methods and content in a liberal arts environment. We will include a presentation of our group process, institutional support framework, and the ongoing project to demonstrate a comprehensive view of digital scholarship at a liberal arts college.

Outcomes: Develop an understanding of how the unique nature of the liberal arts environment lends itself to advancing digital scholarship and preservation
