The DLF Digital Scholarship Working Group formed at the 2017 Forum in Pittsburgh to bring together librarians, coordinators, specialists, and project managers working in digital scholarship broadly or digital humanities specifically and sharing the charge of supporting digital research projects, coordinating community efforts, and bridging campus silos with few resources, minimal infrastructure, and informal partnerships. The group includes those working in established, fully staffed digital scholarship units or centers whose experiences enrich discussions and inform initiatives.
