Acord, Associate Director, Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere, skacord@ufl.edu Laurie Taylor, Digital Humanities Librarian, UF Libraries, laurien@ufl.edu Summary To begin a discussion, to occur throughout Fall 2012, of archival curation as a scholarly activity, involving collaborations between academic researchers, information scientists, and IT experts. To discuss the theoretical framework of digital scholarship across disciplines. To move beyond an understanding of the digital as a reprod to a discussion of how digital technologies can augment and make possible new or improved studies of archival objects.
