Digital Content Creation Digital Content Creation Presentation Transcript

  • Digital Content Creation: How Libraries can Shift the Paradigm Rupak Chakravarty Lecturer-cum-Assistant Librarian Department of Library & Information Science Panjab University, Chandigarh [email_address]
  • Digital Culture and US
    • Lets accept we don't possess a bold and visible “digital culture.”
    • By digital culture I mean creation, management and dissemination of scholarly digital contents.
    • The irony is though we create digital content (less or substantial), we DON'T MANAGE and DISSEMINATE it institutionally.
  • How is it Possible?
    • Understand the Digital Contents created at our institution as an “Institutional Heritage” or an “Institutional Legacy.”
    • “ We” + “Them” = “US”
    • So all belonging to an institution will have to value our digital creations as much as we care about the digital devices we are using at our homes.
  • So it is all about...
    • Changing our mindsets
    • Try to develop a policy document
    • Develop a team
  • So it is all about...
    • Present the policy document before appropriate authority(s).
    • Use some convincing power.
  • So it is all about...
    • Repeat it if necessary
