Title: The Digital Liberal Arts
Description: This session will begin by exploring trends in the Digital Liberal Arts, a concept of increasing importance and interest to many Faculty across a myriad of disciplines on campuses of all sizes. With the understanding that it can be difficult for small college libraries to support digital projects, we will explore ways that Ursinus College's Library & Information Technology department is both encouraging and supporting various types of them (including GIS and digital storytelling) in disciplines that have traditionally not engaged in digital scholarship. We’ll conclude the session by having a discussion about possible ways that TCLC libraries might work together to pursue a digital project related to the TCLC organization in an effort engage TCLC libraries actively in the Digital Liberal Arts, preserve TCLC’s history and better promote TCLC to libraries in the region.
- understand more about what the term “Digital Liberal Arts” means and current trends related to it
- learn about specific Digital Liberal Arts projects at Ursinus and how the LIT department is supporting them
- discuss ways that TCLC libraries might collaborate on a Digital Liberal Arts project that highlights the TCLC organization
