Penn State ScholarSphere is a new research repository service offered by the University Libraries and Information Technology Services, enabling Penn State faculty, staff, and students to share their scholarly works such as research datasets, working papers, research reports, and image collections, to name a few examples. ScholarSphere will make these works more discoverable, accessible, usable, and thus broadly recognized and known.
We’re thrilled to announce that Penn State will be sponsoring and planning another two-day CURATEcamp — a series of unconference-style events focused on connecting practitioners and technologists interested in digital curation — this summer.
Date: August 15-16
Site: Stanford University, Palo Alto, California
We’re working out registration costs and sponsorships, so keep an eye on the CURATEcamp website, Twitter, or the digital-curation listserv. Special thanks go to Digital Library Technologies and the Digital Library Federation for their sponsorship and support.
