I would like to have a discussion about how we can collaborate to advance digital scholarship in the Northwest. How can we share and aggregate ideas, expertise, content, and tools? And, looking beyond the development of particular projects, how can we sustain and preserve our work over time?
As a resource manager, I am interested in developing sustainable programs. Northwest libraries and archives have an impressive record of collaboration (e.g., the Orbis Cascade Alliance (www.orbiscascade.org/) and the Northwest Digital Archives (nwda.wsulibs.wsu.edu/). How can digital scholarship achieve similar success and scale in the Northwest?
