Speakers from Emory University, THATCamp, Research Data Alliance, College of Wooster, NITLE, and the University of Cincinnati will share their thoughts on how collaborative processes have brought a new level of discovery and understanding in support of scholarship. Joining them will be representatives from the Kelvin Smith Library to discuss the future of the Freedman Center and a shared vision for supporting digital scholarship on campus.
