Two librarians, two technologists, and an archivist--all working to support the fine arts and humanities, and promote the use and creation of digital projects. With our combined expertise in libraries, special collections, and all things digital, we have built a team of experts who work closely with faculty to bring digital collections to the classroom. Together we promote research and analysis using digital collections, primary sources and digital tools that help students consider information from new angles. Working together has strengthened our methodologies and enhanced our approach to digital pedagogy. From Slack channels to Google Team Drive, joint instruction to coffee dates, our approach has enriched campus pedagogy with regard to digital collections and tools. We’ll tell you how we did it, what challenges we faced, and discuss approaches that might work at your particular institution.
