Event Details

This symposium will explore the nature and extent of digital scholarship occurring within research libraries across the international research library community. It will bring together representatives from international research library associations, funders, the academic community, and global-library collectives to explore areas of potential cross-sector and interdisciplinary collaboration, and the routes and networks through which this might be achieved. 

 

The symposium will provide delegates with an overview of recently published international research, emerging trends and commonalities between these studies, and areas of potential collective working and collaboration.

 

It follows the recent publication of RLUK’s research report Digital Scholarship and the Role of the Research Library and is convened by RLUK’s Digital Scholarship Network.

 

Who should attend?

 

This event is aimed at colleagues engaged in the strategic development and delivery of digital scholarship services within research libraries and higher-education institutions, members of the academic community, sectoral bodies, and funders.

 

A full meeting agenda can be downloaded from the RLUK website.
