Description

As more and more scholars experiment with digital methods and with building digital collections, what measures are in place to make sure that the fruits of these
labors are kept vital for the long term? Library directors and chief information officers sense that there is interest on the part of faculty, but does this mean they
need to invest in a digital humanities center and hire new staff or just reconfigure the people and resources they already have? First and foremost, what does
university leadership seek to gain from such an investment? This study seeks to address the fate of digital research resources - whether they be digital collections of scholarly or other materials, portals, encyclopedias, mapping tools, crowdsourced transcription projects, visualization tools, or other original and innovative projects that may be created by professors, library, or IT staff. Such projects have the potential to provide valuable tools and information to an international audience of learners. Without careful planning and execution, however, they can also all too easily slip between the cracks and quickly become obsolete.
