Overview of the Conference
This symposium will explore the emerging synergy between faculty and librarians working to jointly develop new expressions of knowledge in the form of digital scholarship products and digital library systems. As scholarly communication becomes increasingly digital in terms of media and functionality, what transformative opportunities are there for productive collaborative relationships between academic professionals such as faculty, librarians, and technologists.

The keynote speaker for this event will be Dr. Geoffrey Rockwell, a leading Canadian researcher in the area of electronic text analysis. Rockwell is project leader of the Canada Foundation for Innovation funded Text Analysis Portal for Research (TAPoR) project, and is based at McMaster University.

Panels will include teams of librarians, technologists, and faculty members who work on collaborative projects, including the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, the Expanded, Online Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database (Voyages project), e-Williamsburg, and Electronic Tools and Ancient Near Eastern Archives (ETANA).
