Long Bio

Laurie N. Taylor, PhD, is UF’s Digital Scholarship Librarian. Her work focuses on socio-technical (people, policies, technologies, communities) needs for scholarly cyberinfrastructure. She works heavily with the Digital Library of the Caribbean (dLOC) where she is the Digital Scholarship Director, LibraryPress@UF where she is the Editor-in-Chief, Digital Humanities Working Group and the DH Graduate Certificate, and Research Computing with these and other activities geared towards enabling a culture of radical collaboration that values and supports diversity, equity, and inclusivity. In addition to teaching and expert consultative services, she builds and leverages infrastructure to create and sustain successful collaborative scholarly projects and initiatives, further integrate the Libraries with research and teaching on campus, expand scholarly communications in service of public scholarship, and enhance broader impacts from scholarly work. She has been the principal investigator, co-PI, and investigator on many grants, including co-principal investigator on the ARL PD Bank, a digital scholarship project to centrally collect academic library job position descriptions to support transformational changes in academia in the digital age. Her current research explores methods, practices, formal and informal structures, and other socio-technical supports for collaborative scholarly and library practices with digital scholarship.  She has published refereed articles on digital scholarship, library publishing, collaborative international digital libraries, library and information science, digital media, open access, and literature; and she co-edited a collection on digital representations of history and memory, Playing the Past: Video Games, History, and Memory.

She’s in a video on collaboration with Libraries and Research Computing for scholarship in the digital age, which can be seen below.
