Abstract:
"Developing Librarian" refers to re-skilling programs to meet increased user demand for digital humanities services. This intensive pilot training program will benefit those interested in improving their skills by working collaboratively on a digital humanities project that will strengthen the usefulness of the Grimm Brothers on line sub-collection in the Baldwin Library. Training experts will be drawn from the Smathers Libraries and from other academic institutions. Funding will support visiting experts to present training sessions for the Libraries and other campus participants, and for an OPS student to assist participants and support the scholars lab. (Thanks to Alex Gil and the Developing Librarian Project at Columbia University for the "Developing Librarian" used in this project proposal.)
General Note:
Grant in collaboration with the DHLG ( Digital Humanities Library Group ).
General Note:

We will employ digital curation skills acquired during the year long Developing Librarian Digital Humanities Pilot Training minigrant. The grant supports training to enhance library collaboration on digital schol arship. Successful completion of the Mining the Brothers Grimm project will be evidence of our learning process. Deliverables Create an online exhibit of the Brothers Grimm subcollection with Digital Humanities components including small scale data visual ization. Use Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) code to enhance selected texts and encourage scholarly engagement. Create and maintain a blog to document the groups progress during the Developing Librarian project. Outcomes Develop professional skills in t he Digital Humanities within the George A. Smathers Libraries Apply digital curation techniques to the Grimm subcollection Build technical, design, and organizational skills in support of the new Scott Nygren Scholars Studio Communicate progress and results of the Developing Librarian project (e.g., blog, minigrant reports, FACRL, etc.) Use this project as a case study for future collaborative projects involving the DHLG Audience Students, faculty, librarians, curators, archivists, and the general public.

Team Member Roles and Responsibilities All team members will be trained in all project aspects. As the project evolves, team members will identify their specializations and interests. During this project, team members may emerge as leaders in specific areas, which may include: TEI of Grimm texts Online exhibit (with smallscale data visualization) Digital Humanities Library Group blog Timing and Constraints The project will be substantially completed by June 20 15. Each team member has given 6% FTE for both training and project completion. The project will be developed to best ensure sustainability to the extent possible through the archiving of project materials in the UF Digital Collections powered by SobekCM. Project materials as applicable will be archived. The project may include various technologies. For instance, the exhibit may be developed in Omeka hosted by UF Research Computing or other technologies. Communication Project members will make every effort to keep in regular contact by email or other means. The team will hold regular meetings/trainings where collaboration can take place. Project members will make every effort to attend meetings as arranged. If unable t o attend, they will communicate this to team members as soon as possible. Deadlines Project members will jointly establish and attempt to meet self imposed deadlines, in part through providing the project with lists of commitments. Reminders will be sent out as a matter of routine. Credit When referring to the project, team members should always credit the team. We encourage everyone to share with the team when they make public mentions of the project. When the project is completed, the team will work to gether to promote the process and project.
