Clifford Lynch wrote in Rethinking Institutional Repository Strategies: Report of a CNI Executive Roundtable, “The Digital Humanities/IR relationship is very important. For faculty aggressively embracing DH work, and producing new genres of scholarly output that don’t fit within the existing publishing (and hence stewardship and preservation) systems, the ability to shift access and preservation of their work into an institutional setting is essential to legitimizing this work.” Digital scholarship presents a similar set of challenges and opportunities to library publishers. How can we support scholars in creating complex digital products? What does library publishing bring to the table in this area? How does unique digital scholarship fit into our strategies for scalability and sustainability? What does it mean to ‘publish’ a digital scholarship project, anyway? Please join us for an exploratory conversation about the current digital scholarship landscape, the opportunities for library publishers, and the needs of scholars and librarians related to this emerging area of practice.

About the roundtable discussions
These discussions take place approximately every other month, and each one has a specified topic, an LPC member co-facilitator (or two), and at least one guest. They are informal (no presentations, no recordings), and are designed to give the LPC community an opportunity to discuss a topic of interest, as well as to identify further opportunities for collaboration and areas that need further investigation or programming. Roundtable discussions are open to all staff at member institutions. If you have ideas for topics, or are interested in serving as a co-moderator, please contact Melanie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
