  • You probably already have some of the pieces you will need to start building out support for digital scholarship.Example: Database service
  • Digital scholarship work almost always takes team work. Make sure you understand how your institution works and who does what. Listen to what people need and also what they are anxious about.
  • You know people are going to want to put things online. Go ahead and figure out where you can host things and what you will support.Also, determine what kinds of policies you need; how long will you host something? Who is responsible for updates? How will you manage IP rights concerns?
  • Even if you do not have the capacity to do everything you want to right now, you can start working towards it.
