Increasingly, scholars are producing works in non-traditional genres and mediums, published using alternative platforms. This presentation will describe some of the trends and unique affordances of multimodal scholarship across the digital arts, sciences and humanities domains. Examples discussed include results from a recent bibliometric study on science video abstracts; Humanities dissertations, monographs, and edited collections published, and sometimes collaboratively written, online; and digital art scholarship, such as the Words of Encouragement installation (Weisman Art Museum). Finally, we will discuss the potential implications of these emerging areas of scholarship on librarians and library services.
