Digital Initiatives Symposium


Three library deans will share their perspectives on developing organizations that can sustain digital initiatives and IR, and to assess those initiatives. Peggy Seiden will set the stage by discussing the organizational change, budgetary decisions and political work that allow college and university libraries to move forward with this work. Karen Schneider will talk about the political and practical opportunities facilitated by creating a culture of respect for numbers and assessment. Kenning Arlitsch will focus on the development of RAMP (Repository Analytics and Metrics Portal) as an example of a diagnostic tool whose aggregated dataset about IR use holds enormous research potential for the library community.
