This workshop took place March 13-14, 2017, in Blackburn Room, Robarts Library, University of Toronto.

The workshop aims to examine the critical roles that librarians play in creating and sustaining innovative digital scholarship, to share experience among those who have created successful projects and to motivate librarians to "own" a larger role in the creation and preservation of the digital realm.

Major topics of discussion will include:

  • Case studies of projects that build and curate digital collections and content
  • Tools and techniques for data visualization and text analysis
  • Managing Metadata schema and APIs
  • Managing students and volunteers
  • Planning for collection scalability and data migration to new platforms
  • Long-term preservation and access to digital media
  • Best practices for managing rights to digital information
  • Strategies for increasing the role of the library as a research partner in emerging areas of scholarship in Japanese studies

This workshop was held March 13-14, 2017. Video recordings of presentations are available on the Presentations page of this guide.
