Digital Scholarship Lecture: Laurie N. Taylor

Laurie N. Taylor, Digital Scholarship Librarian at the University of Florida, will be speaking on "Digital Libraries & Digital Scholarship."  

 

In her presentation, she will cover the importance of digital libraries for enabling digital scholarship, including the digital humanities. Digital libraries, digital scholarship, and the digital humanities are inherently socio-technical activities which require people, policies, and technologies. As robust socio-technical systems, digital libraries provide both a model and part of the core foundation necessary for successfully implementing and sustaining digital scholarship. Taylor will share on the experiences from the University of Florida, which leveraged digital library systems and communities to grow digital humanities and digital scholarship activities, projects, and communities.
