New Page: Research

I've added a new page to this website! It is titled "Research" and has a summary of the my current research project available on it. I've spent the last year thinking about Digital Teaching Collections. Last summer I undertook some background research about what Digital Teaching Collections would look like on behalf of the Education & Outreach Coordinator in Special Collections and the Digital Programs & Initiatives Manager in Digital Stewardship at the University Libraries. In the spring of 2013, I completed a literature review for Digital Teaching Collections and an IRB to survey UMD humanities and social science faculty about the use of digital resources for instructional purposes as an independent study project. Over the summer I sent out my survey to UMD faculty and compiled the responses. I am currently editing the final draft of my report for University Libraries about what Digital Teaching Collections should be and how they can be implemented into University Libraries Digital Collections. The Research page currently contains snip-its of the literature review and survey results. When the final report is complete I will upload a pdf to that page.

In the mean time here is a picture of my poster for the DLF Forum in Austin!

Have a great day and keep smiling!
