The University of Cincinnati Libraries were awarded a $58,000 Scholarly Communications and Information Technology Program planning grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to define and describe the key skills and competencies required to support a robust digital scholarship program.

The project investigators will conduct interviews with key faculty, administrators, librarians, and technologists engaged in digital scholarship at 10 locations both in the U.S. and abroad. They plan to identify 'best in class' digital scholarship programs to determine the key workforce-related factors associated with those centers' success, always with an eye to continuous improvement and shared learning.

More about the Mellon grant and digital scholarship is available on the UC Libraries website.
