Description

Archivists from Purdue University Archives and Special Collections, embedded within honors courses, recently completed pilot phases of two projects aimed at online dissemination of student scholarly research. Project goals were to increase our own understanding of digital scholarship management, to provide students experience in the scholarly publication cycle, to strengthen our collaborative efforts with faculty, and finally, to enhance exposure of Archives and Special Collections as a center for student research and scholarship. Outcomes included many successes, some failures, and opportunities to refine the archives-led digital scholarship process. In this talk, we will discuss the investments necessary by the archivists, faculty, and student staff; share outcomes both positive and negative from the experience, including barriers discovered in the process; and provide our own rubric for bridging the divide between diverse partners within the academy—students, professional staff, and faculty—for successful integration of archival instruction and digital scholarship.
