How can Princeton University Library’s collections and staff expertise be leveraged to advance digital scholarship in the humanities? This session will discuss how Princeton’s Slavic Collections and the Slavic Digital Humanities Working Group have helped make Princeton one of the leaders in DH for Slavic Studies and a crucial node in a developing international network of DH scholarship focused on Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. Topics covered will include: grants & funding, working with students, international partnerships, professional/scholarly organizations, conferences & events. This session will provide ideas for engaging audiences through digital collections and building new partnerships with faculty and students.
