Abstract:

This book provides strategic insights drawn from librarians who are meeting the challenge of digital scholarship, utilizing the latest technologies and creating new knowledge in partnership with researchers, scholars, colleagues and students.

"This book provides strategic insights drawn from librarians who are meeting the challenge of digital scholarship, utilizing the latest technologies and creating new knowledge in partnership with researchers, scholars, colleagues, and students. Spanning a wide range of contrasting perspectives, contexts, insights, and case studies, this edited collection explores the relationships between digital scholarship, contemporary academic libraries, and professional practice. The book demonstrates that there are opportunities to be bold, remodel, try new approaches, and reposition the library as a key partner in the process of digital scholarship. Topics include: the impact of digital scholarship on organizational strategies; developing digital capable librarians; social networking with the scholarly community; digital scholarship centers; new approaches to service delivery; and re-visioning of space, physical and virtual"--Publisher's description.
