Student Collaborators as Central Components of a Digital Scholarship Center

Tuesday, March 27 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 553
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
The staff of the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS) in the Brown University Library advise faculty and students on the application of digital methods to their teaching and research activities. CDS has a staff of six, three of whom have additional library responsibilities, which makes it difficult to keep up with demand. CDS thus relies on students in practically all aspects of its work. This panel will explore how a small team can build capacity by working with undergraduate and graduate students while providing them with opportunities to both build on their academic knowledge and develop new skills.

Outcomes: Learn how to build on student expertise to provide technical support in emerging technical areas * Explore opportunities for student engagement in faculty research activities * Gain a deeper understanding of how to work with students to create best practices for curating digital research products
