Transcending institutions and borders: 21st century digital scholarship at K-StateKansas Library Association’s (KLA) with Nebraska Library Association (NLA) College and University Libraries Section (CULS) Annual Spring Conference (2016)
Digital scholarship of the 21st century transcends institutions and borders with its freedom from print and physical locations. In this session, the presenters will discuss various aspects of establishing a digital scholarship center, supporting open access through the institutional repository (K-State Research Exchange - K-REx) along with other outreach efforts, and the implications of building a sustainable open access publishing platform (New Prairie PressNPP). The Center for the Advancement of Digital Scholarship at K-State Libraries serves our campus community, but digital scholarship extends K-State's impact far beyond Manhattan, Kansas. Highlighting the scholarship at our campus is only one small piece of the landscape. Collaboration on campus with both faculty and students includes working with authors, editors, and site administrators; but our roles in publishing, supporting, and managing open access, including data management, publishing funds and textbook initiatives, have broader implications. The presenters will demonstrate how a single direct connection to K-State can translate into partnerships which have regional, national, and international reach and will lead to the development of standards and best practices. We will highlight the Center's engagement with university press partners and colleagues at national organizations and other universities. We will illustrate how our strategies have changed and will change over time in order to support all types of digital scholarship.
