Successes and Challenges in Growing and Sustaining an Undergraduate Digital Scholarship Program
R.C. Miessler (Gettysburg College)

In July of 2017, Gettysburg College’s Musselman Library completed the second iteration of the Digital Scholarship Summer Fellowship, a library-led, student-focused program that introduces students to digital scholarship tools and methodology. With the 2017 cohort, the program maintained many of its key features that made it successful, such as its curriculum, presenting a final project, and fostering a community of digital scholarship practice among undergraduates.

With a desire to expand the program, the second iteration of the program evolved to incorporate the 2016 cohort of Digital Scholarship Fellows; these students, who provided digital scholarship support to students and faculty during the academic year, returned as Senior Fellows and acted as mentors to the 2017 cohort, developed an open educational resource, and continued their own research projects.
Librarian R.C. Miessler will discuss the successes and challenges of supporting a growing digital scholarship program, with a focus on its future sustainability and a vision of its expansion into a campus-wide initiative.
