The New Librarianship Field Guide | R. David Lankes
"This book offers a guide for librarians who see their profession as a chance to make a positive difference in their communities—librarians who recognize that it is no longer enough to stand behind a desk waiting to serve. R. David Lankes, author of The Atlas of New Librarianship, reminds librarians of their mission: to improve society by facilitating knowledge creation in their communities. In this book, he provides tools, arguments, resources, and ideas for fulfilling this mission. Librarians will be prepared to become radical positive change agents in their communities, and other readers will learn to understand libraries in a new way."

What is Digital Scholarship? - Digital Pedagogy and Scholarship - LibGuides at Guilford College
"Thanks to a grant awarded to Guilford College by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Digital Directions for the Arts and Humanities, our community can explore the realm of digital scholarship, specifically as it relates to the growing field of the digital arts and humanities. From harnessing IBM punch card technology in the 1950s to using scores of Dominican monks to create a concordance in the 1200s, there is a rich history of scholars using available technology to analyze historic texts."

DLAx | The Digital Liberal Arts Exchange
"Many schools have recently embarked upon initiatives in digital scholarship – those forms of scholarship largely in the humanities and humanistic social sciences that emphasize digital tools and infrastructure, as well as accompanying expertise and support. These initiatives bring new challenges, such as meeting the growing demand for technical support from faculty and students with trained staff and necessary hardware and software. Even institutions with well-established programs struggle to keep pace."

What is Digital Scholarship? A Typology | William G. Thomas III

Digital Scholarship Centers
"The purpose of this workshop was to explore the varying models of supporting digital scholarship in higher education, focusing on those that involve partnerships with, or a strong role for, libraries and information technology units. Participants were selected to represent a range of scholarship center models, different types of higher education institutions, and a variety of roles, including senior leadership, heads of centers, faculty closely affiliated with centers, and graduate students with close ties to centers."

" is a service, currently in beta, that allows users to create citation links that will never break. When a user creates a link, archives a copy of the referenced content, and generates a link to an unalterable hosted instance of the site. Regardless of what may happen to the original source, if the link is later published by a journal using the service, the archived version will always be available through the link."

Ronin Institute
"For many people, the problem with academia is the lifestyle: the long hours, the stress, the travel. This is where the idea of “fractional scholarship” that Sam Arbesman and I have been pushing comes in. We believe that the people who would like spend ten, twenty, or thirty hours a week doing scholarly research number in the tens of thousands. Some of these would-be fractional scholars have full-time non-academic jobs that limit their hours. Some simply want to be able to pick up their kids from school every day."

The Rise of Fractional Scholarship
"Underemployed post-graduate researchers represent a vast, untapped resource that could be harnessed to address America's thorniest scientific challenges, according to a report issued by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The paper suggests that "fractional scholarship" could employ surplus scholarly expertise to advance scientific research, much as distributed computing projects - which recognize that most computers are largely idle during their lifetimes - utilize spare computational cycles to seek answers to complicated problems."

Sex, Lies, and Separating Science From Ideology - Alice Dreger - The Atlantic
"Margaret Mead saw in Samoa the possibility of loosening social strictures on sexuality -- something she suggested could lead to more pleasure, and less pain and suffering. She and her work were attacked and discredited, but nearly a century later, questions of the motives and integrity of her dissenters remain relevant."

AmericanScience: A Team Blog: On Cronon: History, Law, and the Public, 2 of 2
"What do scholars offer present politics? Does it depend on the discipline - sociology vs. history vs. chemistry - and, within disciplines, on sub-fields? Amongst historians, does a US historian like Cronon have more to offer than, say, a medievalist? Does it matter *where you live* (Cronon's made much of his place-based identity), or *what you know* (e.g. for the sake of comparison), or *how you think* (pattern recognition, textual analysis,

Study Hacks » Blog Archive » The Romantic Scholar: A New Approach to Student Life
Herschel was a man of the Romantic Era, a period spanning from the mid 18th century into the early decades of the 19th. The scientists of this era recast their work from an exercise in cold rationality to an aesthetic experience. They reveled in the difficult work of teasing truth out of a reclusive Nature, and experienced frequent moments of awe.

As a young scientist myself, this era is appealing for obvious reasons. More surprising, however, is its relevance to my role as writer of student advice. I claim that we can draw from the ethos of these Romantic Scholars a new approach to student life: one that can transform your education experience — high school through graduate school — from a trial to survive into the foundation of a life well-lived.
