How can librarians collaborate effectively to promote cross-disciplinary scholarship and teaching in digital humanities? What are examples of spaces, activities, and programs developed cooperatively by librarians and digital humanities colleagues?  What are strategies for cultivating meaningful partnerships to advance interdisciplinary work? How can librarians and digital humanities colleagues work together to develop and promote cross-campus conversations among scholars in the humanities and social sciences?

This session will include a panel discussion exploring partnerships between the library and digital humanities (DH) colleagues at Michigan State University (MSU). The panelists will describe collaborative work in developing spaces, programs, outreach, and events to connect scholars from across campus engaging in digital scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. Through exploring background on programs and initiatives, such as interdisciplinary programming developed by the DH@MSU Engagement & Outreach Committee, and the Graduate Arts Fellowship program, panelists will also share key takeaways and lessons learned for effective collaboration.

Building on the knowledge and experiences of attendees, this interactive session will include discussion-based activities to facilitate sharing strategies, practices, and further lessons learned for cultivating and nurturing productive partnerships to promote digital scholarship research and teaching. Participants will gain ideas and collaborative techniques for facilitating cross-campus connections to advance interdisciplinary teaching and inquiry.
