My approach to digital scholarship is threefold, with each element implicating the next in exciting and productive ways.

And, when projects succeed, they can transform the ways we approach learning and research. Projects. Communities. Pedagogy.

A series of symposia held at the Yale University Library which examined how scholarship and its supporting institutions might face the upcoming opportunities and challenges of an open, digital, and networked environment.

The ideas discussed shaped strategies to promote digital scholarship at Yale. Project manager.
