  • Roger Smith - UCSD had a DH symposium. Full day with time for lightning talks/panels. Wide participation including faculty. Library mainly shared info on DAMS infrastructure (Hydra/Blacklight, well-connected to UCLDC also) and where this might lead library in terms of DH work. A successful day.
  • Mary Elings - at UCB there was a 2-day DH Fair in April. 1st day was a panel held in library, specifically for libraries. 2 faculty members & 2 grad students talked specifically about what the library can do to support DH. Expressed desire for more digital content, which is great. Second day: another panel with other DH practitioners. Well attended/received event.
  • Zoe Borovsky - at UCLA there was a DH donor event in the Research Commons (Young Research Library). Faculty presented on projects, and a student from each project spoke about their participation. Library has been involved in each project. Also hands-on demos. Well received.

Schedule monthly meeting timeBarbara

Decided that we will try to schedule a regular monthly meeting time starting a few months out (September/October), so expect another doodle poll soon.

In the in between months, will schedule one off meetings to accommodate the largest number of attendees possible.

20+ min (1:25 - 2:00)DH @ UC Libraries clearinghouse site proposal (google docs link; only DH CKG members can edit)Barbara

In general, proposal looks good. We upped the time estimates somewhat. Barbara will incorporate changes and send out next week.

General agreement once again that we need an in person meeting, especially at the outset in order to build this site collaboratively. Will add this to the proposal.
