OLA Super Conference 2012


The Sherman Centre for Digital Scholarship began operation in 2011 at McMaster University. A common question is, what do you do? In this session we will discuss the formation and purpose of the centre and the role of the library and librarians. While centres vary from institution to institution, our purpose here is to outline specifically what we do and how it fits into the larger academic context.
