    Program schedule: Showcasing Research & Teaching in the 21st Century: A Digital Approach
    (2007-03-29) Billings, Marilyn S; Michel, Marla
    Strategies for leveraging technology to advance research, teaching, and scholarship will be the focus of the second annual event of the UMass Amherst Digital Quadrangle series. National Association for State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) Vice President for Academic Affairs David Shulenburger will explore the opportunities associated with open access to scholarly and scientific work. This will also be your opportunity to participate in the official launch of the ScholarWorks@UMass Amherst, the new digital repository for campus researchers and scholars. Selected faculty members will reflect on their early adoption of ScholarWorks and its impact on their research and teaching. The sponsors will discuss tools and policies to enable this new paradigm. Faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to attend.

    Program Schedule: Research & Scholarship in the Digital Age: An Exploration
    (2006-04-06) Billings, Marilyn S; Michel, Marla
    In this inaugural event for the UMass Amherst Digital Quadrangle Series – an annual program brought to you by the UMass Amherst Libraries, Office of Research, Center for Teaching, and Graduate School – we will explore the changing nature of the representation of knowledge and how it will impact research and scholarship. NSF Program Director, Chris Greer, will speak about multi-disciplinary digital collections and toolkits for future applications. Selected faculty members will share their experiences of the impact the digital age has had on their research from online journals to implications of open source to new discoveries. The colloquium sponsors will discuss their services in the context of research and digital collections.

    Program Schedule: Engaging the Web for Scholarship, Pedagogy, and Publication
    (2008-03-27) Billings, Marilyn S; Michel, Marla
    Scholarworks@UMassAmherst is one way the campus supports the open communication of the scholarship at UMass Amherst. Using this digital technology and the web has its benefits but its use also raises many questions including, “Have I been losing the rights to my own work?” “How can I keep my author rights?” and, "If my work isn't online, is it invisible?" For this 3rd installation of the Digital Quadrangle Series, we’re particularly pleased to have Dr. Siva Vaidhyanathan, associate professor of Media Studies and Law at the University of Virginia, join us for his talk, “The Googlization of Everything.” The program will also include a faculty panel presentation of Scholarworks implementations, remarks on the Carnegie Classification on Community Engagement, and a facilitated luncheon that will result in action plans for keeping your author rights and publishing in an online environment, addressing concerns about IP, and adopting ScholarWorks. Faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to attend. The event is open to the public although the luncheon is for campus members only.
