ASERL Friends:

I'm pleased to announce the next in our series of Digital Scholarship Show & 
Tell webinars, hearing from leaders of the Scholars Lab at the University of 
Virginia.  Founded in 2006, the Scholars’ Lab is the University of Virginia 
Library’s community lab for the practice of experimental scholarship in all 
fields, informed by digital humanities, spatial technologies, and cultural 
heritage thinking. We’ll provide an overview of how the Scholars’ Lab manages 
DH publication.  Universities and libraries are adjusting as humanities faculty 
conduct research in ways similar to social and natural sciences: apply for 
grants, form collaborative research groups or labs, offer open peer review in 
advance of publication (like pre-prints), present work in poster sessions, and 
work with large datasets on experiments that are intended to be reproducible. 
Nevertheless, in digital humanities, we want to affirm the irreproducible, 
unverifiable qualitative work of the humanities, as well the distinctive 
humanities approaches to accessibility, preservation, and intellectual 
property. The Scholars’ Lab focuses on student fellowships and consultations on 
advanced humanities research with faculty and students. Our communication 
includes our collaborative staff- and student-authored scholarly blog at 
ScholarsLab.org/blog. Head of Student Programs Brandon Walsh will describe the 
outcome of a recent move of our main website from WordPress to Jekyll/markdown. 
 And Walsh will share his work on DH publication that documents the labor of 
teaching.  Co-Director Alison Booth will speak to the challenges of scholarly 
communication for humanities faculty who work with digital resources, based on 
her own experience as an English professor and director of a longstanding 
digital project, Collective Biographies of Women, which has been supported by 
different research groups, Scholars’ Lab and IATH.  GIS Specialist Chris Gist 
will discuss DH publication for GIS and spatial data.
