  • DCAPS as not just humanities and RDMSG as not just science; we all offer digital scholarship services that are not bound within any single discipline. Thus far, RDMSG has focused primarily on science data; however, their support / data services are available to any faculty engaged with data (that includes DH-ers, as well). A joint-DCAPS/RDMSG collaboration with a faculty member in the department of Government on text mining is a prime example to the lack of rigid boundaries in our role digital scholarship. Meanwhile, DCAPS is currently working with a Plant Pathologist to make available images of specimensWhile we have small one-off projects or consultations, what is particularly important, though is that DCAPS is not simply a service group; we consider ourselves to be collaborators on many, if not all of our larger projects. At the moment, RDMSG is well positioned to do the same.
  • DCAPS and RDMSG as having different basic models and ‘content’ types (data-centric versus not), however, we offer similar services at the conceptual level. DCAPS goes much beyond digitizing and capturing metadata for traditional library digital projects AND RDMSG goes far beyond helping prepare data management plans. Both facilitate research, provide extensive consultation & services with faculty, students, and non-Cornell entities at all points during a projects lifecycle. As said before, we consider themselves to be collaborators on projects.
  • Building digital scholarship services is well positioned within the library. These two quotes, pulled from the CUL strategic plan, offer insight into the level of conceptual investment for these services. These goals are not merely words in a document; the Library Executive Group and other committees are working to enact the strategic plan’s goals.
  • Digital Scholarship as-a-whole across CUL (data and digital media creation being only two components) have been engaged in a program to ‘educate’ library liaisons so that they can be more knowledgeable about services and whom faculty / researchers should contact. RDMSG is considering new ways of outreach to maintain interest and foster both new and continued participation. DCAPS staff have began attending faculty meetings to detail services and learn why the collaboration is not stronger. This has been eye opening and has allowed us to rethink staffing to more nimbly react to research and teaching needs.
  • While these services have become core (as evidenced in their position in the library), we do not necessarily have a staffing model to scale to a growing program. For RDMSG - Current level of activity, with the scope defined as it is, and the commitment of participants, the work we do is sustainable. However, any change in that equation would easily upset that balance and then issues such as subject-area expertise and funding would likely need to be addressed.Governance structure as providing sustainability – collaborations across campus for RDMSG and financial model for DCAPSMeasures of success: we juggle many projects and platforms and do not necessarily go back and do follow-up. To completely generalize: For DCAPS, when a project is online, it is considered complete. For RDMSG, there is not an automatic mechanism in-place to evaluate the way that their DMP is received by funding agencies; however, this is done informally when researchers share feedback.
