Coalition for Networked Information Fall 2015 Membership Meeting

Conference Location

Washington, DC


On June 1, 2015, The University of Iowa (UI) Libraries with the support of the UI provost, launched the Digital Scholarship & Publishing Studio. The Studio maintains a physical presence in the UI Main Library and was created by merging the Libraries-operated Digital Research and Publishing department with the campus-operated center called the Digital Studio for Public Arts and Humanities. With nearly a dozen full-funded staff positions, the Studio represents a remarkable commitment of institutional resources to the growth and development of digital scholarship. Housing the Iowa Digital Library (over one million digital objects), Iowa Research Online (the institutional repository), DIY History (participatory archives platform), and faculty and student Digital Editions (non-monographic digital scholarly work), the Studio collaborates with faculty, staff, and students from across the campus and the Iowa City community. This session will include discussion of the administrative movements associated with the merger; the infrastructural support for the Studio within the UI Libraries; and how the Studio is best positioned to usher in 21st century digital scholarship at UI.
