<p>The "Digital Humanities and Library Labor: Resources, Workflows, and Project Management in a Collaborative Context” panel focused on library labor and project management issues that arise when librarians, archivists, museum professionals, students, and research faculty collaborate on digital humanities projects. The presenters will provide original research and case studies on project management for collaborative projects, with a focus on sustainability, managing the labor and resources necessary to have successful projects, and balancing the expectations of all parties involved. As part of this panel, Jessica Wagner Webster discussed her recent research addressing collaborations between information professionals and research faculty on digital humanities projects. Becky Thoms presented on her work with Utah State University Libraries' Digital Initiatives Unit, which supports the full range of the libraries’ digital efforts including digital history collections, digital exhibits, the IR, and myriad digital scholarship/digital humanities collaborations with faculty and students. Virginia Dressler discussed collaborative digital humanities projects initiated at Kent State over the last year. Michelle Dalmau focused on strategies for recognizing and elevating student-led or student-partnered digital arts and humanities projects.</p> <p>Virginia Dressler will discuss collaborative digital humanities projects initiated at Kent State over the last year. One project currently underway is focused on an independent research project led by a faculty member from the Department of English, focusing on a collection of nineteenth century women's insane asylum memoirs. Initial discussions with the faculty member and the Digital Projects Librarian centered around the expectations of a DH project, including who would complete the high resolution scanning and post-production work. Part of the first conversations touched on the current availability and capacity of the digital projects student workers, who ultimately are completing the work involved, and expected timelines of deliverables, particularly within the scenario of using existing resources (personnel, equipment and software). This project has also served an important role of being a DH project guinea pig within the digital initiatives unit, balancing this work with other more time-sensitive work that is on-going.</p>
