Title: Digital Humanities Collaboration, Faculty Enhancement Opportunity ( FEO ) Grant Proposal
Physical Description: Grant proposal
Creator: Taylor, Laurie N.
Publisher: George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida

 Notes
Abstract: As a librarian in the George A. Smathers Libraries’ Digital Library Center, I am responsible for continued development of the UF Digital Collections (UFDC), including support for existing projects, initiating discussions for potential new projects and partners, and new digital scholarship services related to UFDC and other collaborative digital collection projects supported by the UF Libraries including the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC, an international collaborative). I would benefit from practical face-to-face interaction with colleagues providing digital scholarship services within libraries. Digital scholarship units in libraries support area specific needs such as E-Science and the Digital Humanities, develop new digital projects with faculty, develop new forms of digital scholarly publishing, and build tools and systems that support digital information and scholarly activity. My proposed FEO is to develop a collaborative relationship with the Emory University Libraries, currently developing their own Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC), through exchange visits. I selected Emory’s DiSC because their model is very similar to the model developing within the UF Libraries and because their center is still emerging, presenting an opportunity for collaborative development and shared insight for the centers and future projects. Emory's DiSC is poised to become a national leader by 2012. This FEO consists of three components: 1) conducting a site visit to DiSC; 2) hosting visitors from DiSC for site visits to UF's Digital Library Center; and, 3) a pilot collaborative digital scholarship project, including digitizing visual textuality materials (e.g. comics, illustrated texts). The visits will facilitate consultation, assessment, and future collaboration. They will allow me to examine and discuss how centralized units provide services and support to facilitate collaboration among library and academic faculty for innovative digital scholarship and digital curation. I will use this opportunity to establish a collaborative partnership for a pilot project and future projects, including grants and other initiatives. I expect the knowledge gained during the exchange visits will offer new insights into best practices directly applicable to planning, development, and ongoing support for digital scholarship services for the UF Libraries. After concluding the exchange visits, I will produce a pilot digital scholarship project on visual textuality and a white paper detailing the best practices most applicable for the UF Libraries.

Whitson, Roger T. [mailto:roger.t.whitson@emory.edu] Tuesday, September 13, 2011 10:37 AM Taylor,Laurie Nancy Francesca RE: Proposal regarding collaboration with the Emory University Libraries Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) Dear Laurie Taylor: We would be excited to host you for three days as part of the University of Florida Faculty Enhancement Opportunity (FEO) award and to visit the Smathers Library in Gainesville, Florida. The Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) is eager to collaborate with Smathers Library and the Digital Library Center to encourage digital scholarship. I'm sure there is plenty we can learn from each other, both in terms of encouraging collaboration amongst faculty, the public, and librarians and in creating digital projects from our collections. Sincerely, Roger T. Whitson, Ph.D. Andrew W. Mellon Fellow Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) Robert W. Woodruff Library Emory University email: rogerwhitson@gmail.com roger.t.whitson@emory.edu Taylor,Laurie Nancy Francesca [laurien@ufl.edu] Monday, September 12, 2011 8:46 PM Whitson, Roger T. rogerwhitson@gmail.com Proposal regarding collaboration with the Emory University Libraries Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) George A. Smathers Libraries Dear Roger Whitson: I hope this email finds you well. I have enjoyed following the developing Digital Scholarship Commons (DiSC) at the Emory University Libraries and learning about its future plans. As a relatively new librarian for UFs Digital Library Center and the UF Digital Collections (following an interim administrative appointment), I am investigating how the UF Libraries might best support digital scholarship overall, especially the digital humanities, e-science, and digital curation. In support of this investigation, I am applying for a University of Florida Faculty Enhancement Opportunity (FEO) award. This is essentially a brief sabbatical. The FEO includes a travel component for me and a colleague who supports digital scholarship. Further, it also allows me to bring experts to the University of Florida to serve in a consultative capacity. My proposed project includes travel for me and

the UF Digital Collections Programmer to visit the Emory University Libraries. Then, if the project is successful, I would very much like for you and one of your colleagues to come to the University of Florida and share your knowledge regarding digital scholarship support from within a centralized, library unit. We are interested in the services DiSC provides, the classes you teach, the resources you develop and utilize, and your findings in terms of best practices and methods. We are interested in learning more about how you and your colleagues partner with scholars for digital scholarship projects. We are also interested in possible collaboration with DiSC as the UF Libraries develop centralized digital scholarship support. We would like you to meet with library and other administrators to discuss such library-based support at UF. If possible, we would host you for five days including travel time. If my FEO application is successful, we will cover travel and lodging expenses for you and a colleague from DiSC. Please let me know via email if you would be willing to host visitors at DiSC and to visit UF if this proposal moves forward is funded. Please call me if you would like to discuss the matter. Thank you for your consideration. Sincerely, Laurie N. Taylor Interim Director, Digital Library Center George A.
