“The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the research landscape. The online Jisc and CNI leaders conference will focus on the pivotal role the library will play in enabling universities to equip themselves to respond. We’ll also explore the potential disruption it could cause.
Through the conference theme – at the frontier of research practice: the university library as a catalyst – we’ll cover topics such as monographs and long-form scholarly works: transitioning to open, open and faster scholarly communication in a post-COVID-19 world, how research collections are evolving and researcher environments of tomorrow….”
Abstract: A growing number of researchers in the humanities are using computational tools and methods that are more typically associated with social and scientific research. These tools and techniques enable researchers to pursue new forms of inquiry and new questions and bring more attention to—and cultivate broader interest in—traditional humanities and humanities data. This paper from ECAR and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI) outlines a practical framework for capacity building to develop institutional digital humanities support for IT staff, librarians, administrators, and faculty with administrative responsibilities.
