From Ideas to Scholarly Websites: Fostering Faculty-Student Research and Experimentation through the Digital Scholarship Fellows Program at Connecticut College
Lyndsay Bratton, Benjamin Beranek, Rose Oliveira, Catherine Benoit, Connecticut College

One of the strengths of small liberal arts colleges is the potential for rich faculty-student collaborative research at the undergraduate level. Our joint program between the Library and the Office of the Dean of Faculty at Connecticut College is rapidly building a strong community of practice in digital scholarship where previously there was none. The program brings three faculty members together with staff from across the library's departments, including research librarians, archivists, instructional technologists, and programmers, for three semesters. The program supports projects that promote faculty-student collaboration across the lifecycle of a digital research project through course assignments, independent studies, and summer research assistantships.

Write That Down!: The Importance of Internal Documentation During Project Development
Chris Deems, Ohio Northern University

When creativity sparks and the outpouring of ideas begins, information can be lost amongst the initial excitement. Documentation of these sparks can serve as not only a timeline of project development, but also as a knowledge base and roadmap for the future of the project. This lightening talk will focus on the retrospective importance and value of having documented ideas during the development of a new institutional repository at a small private university. Attendees will learn how the documentation was developed, how it was used to create a workshop for the university's liaison librarians, and the important role that consistent and ongoing internal documentation serves in the flow from spark to sharing.  

Every Spark Needs a Fireplace: The Makerspace in Juniata College’s DH Ecology 
Donald Braxton, Luke Kresse, Juniata College

Since 2017, Juniata College has been developing a digital humanities certificate program. Related to, but on a separate track from, the DH certificate, many impulses have been driving makerspace campaigns on campus. By the time this paper is presented, a significant level of integration will have been achieved. This paper argues that a mature DH program really requires dedicated maker spaces.
