Journey to the Center of a Digital Project: A Tour of Three New Tools for Next-Generation Digital Scholarship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As scholarship continues to go "digital," the urge to create new formats and broaden access has begun to trigger a series of changes to the bedrock of publishing business and infrastructure that will be needed to support this brave new world. How will authors and publishers understand their respective rights and responsibilities? How can publishers understand and communicate the costs associated with publishing long-form digital scholarship, often also made available Open Access, as well as traditional monographs? What platforms will be able to handle multi-modal works that may include a range of forms of media in addition to more traditional narrative forms?

In this interactive session, we will take the example of one new work of digital scholarship, A Mid-Republican House from Gabii, and use it as a case study to demonstrate these new tools in action from project initiation, through the process of forming it into a product ready for publication, considering its financial sustainability, and the final presentation format it will take.

The tools we will share, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, include
the Model Publishing Contract for Digital Scholarship (Emory and Michigan), the AAUP Digital Monograph P+L Tool, and Fulcrum, a publishing platform built on the Hydra/Fedora framework to support source materials for monographs (University of Michigan Press).

Authors, digital scholarship librarians, and publishers, join us! In the session, we will welcome and encourage discussion and feedback on ways to make these tools most useful as new use cases continue to emerge.
