  • The Libraries and IT (LIT) have joined the Digital Library Federation - a program of the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) that brings together a consortium of libraries that develop and use digital technologies to extend collections and services.

    The Digital Library Federation (DLF) is a robust and diverse community of practitioners who advance research, learning, and the public good through digital library technologies.

    The DLF serves as a resource and catalyst for collaboration among its institutional members and all who are invested in digital library issues.

    DLF promotes work on the following:

    • Open digital library standards, software, interfaces, and best practices
    • Digital stewardship and curation, including research data management and aggregation and preservation services for digital collections
    • Digital humanities and other services that expand access to resources and open new opportunities for research, teaching, and learning
    • Connections among digital library practitioners and allied professions and fields
    • Community-driven frameworks for policy advocacy, professional development, issues of representation and diversity, and other matters of concern to digital library practitioners
  • Please join us in congratulating Matthew Lavin (PhD '12).   Matthew has accepted a renewable three year Clinical Assistant Professor position at University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburg, PA.

  • As part of Bucknell's Digital Scholarship Initiative, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Bucknell University invites participation in a three-day summer workshop introducing Network Theory and Network Analysis.  This workshop will given on the campus of Bucknell University on June 12-13, and August 15.

    Network-based approaches, which investigate phenomena as patterns of relationship between elements, have emerged as a powerful method for analysis across a variety of disciplines. Social scientists have used the technique to study social organization and collective action, humanists have applied it to understand how texts emerge out of networks of correspondence, and biologists have studied the networks of interaction that link organisms into ecosystems.

  • In the summer of 2015, from July 26 to August 2, a partnership of 23 liberal arts institutions will host ILiADS, the Institute for Liberal Arts Digital Scholarship, at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York. ILiADS offers participants two ways to engage the community of liberal arts practitioners and pedagogues: a team- and project-based approach and a more traditional conference structure. Those interested in the project-based component, with ideas or teams at any stage (or no stage!) of development, are encouraged to let our planning consultants guide their participation.   

  • Twelve faculty have been awarded Digital Initiatives Fellowships.  The program designed to advance digital pedagogy, digital humanities, and related efforts on campus and is a partnership between Crossing Boundaries and Libraries and Information Technology (LIT), including Digital Initiatives, Educational Technology, and GIS. 

    2014-15 Digital Initiatives Fellows:

    • Chris Buck
    • Stephen Barnard
    • Anne Csete
    • Adam Harr
    • Wes Kline
    • Joe Kling
    • Mindy Pitre
    • Shelley McConnell
    • Judith Nagel-Myers
    • Ronnie Olesker
    • Catherine Tedford
    • Jennifer Thomas

    This program will provide a way for faculty members to begin exploring digital technologies without feeling the need to be so called experts at the start. The cohort of fellows will meet as a group throughout the Fall, occasionally in consultation with various technologies support staff in order to develop all lesson plans associated with faculty members’ digital course components. Partnerships established in the fall will continue into the next semester. Fellows will also work with the Crossing Boundaries associate program coordinator to create an entry on a shared digital showcase/portfolio web space, which will promote a culture of pedagogical exchange and collaboration.
