ASERL Friends:

I'm pleased to announce the next in our webinar series about Digital 
Scholarship programming within our community, this time hearing from colleagues 
at the University of Miami Libraries.  

University of Miami’s Digital Scholarship Unit was established in 2015 as part 
of a larger Digital Strategies Department, and fully staffed in 2017. We have 
several programmatic resources established, but we continue to assess the needs 
of our community and look for opportunities to meet their needs in new ways. 
For this webinar, we’ll discuss a few of the specific areas that we’re working 
• Paige Morgan (Digital Humanities & Scholarship Librarian) will discuss the 
University of Miami’s UGrow RA program for graduate students, and the role that 
libraries can play in giving graduate students DH and alt-ac experience.

• Tim Norris (Research Data Scientist) will share the experience of curating 
data for the "Pulley Ridge" project. The presentation will  focus on metadata, 
repository package creation, and the culture of data sharing in the context of 
this big science project.

• Abraham Parrish (GIS Librarian) will discuss setting up and running his 
alternate-reality game, Game of Maps, using ArcGIS Collector, in conjunction 
with UM Libraries’ annual GIS Day.

• Cameron Riopelle (Data Services Librarian) will present on working with 
different campus communities in a data services capacity.
