Spring 2019

On May 10, 2019, Connected Scholarship and ScholarSpace hosted our first one-day Dash with two awardees participating: Costume Resources with Christianne Myers (School of Music, Theater, & Dance); and Examining the Landscape of Education Research and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Biomedical Engineering with Prat Shekhar (College of Engineering).

Awardee Dan Klyn (School of Information) was unable to attend, but will collaborate with library experts on Measuring the Reach of Info Graphics in the '84 Olympics.

During morning and afternoon sessions, Christianne collaborated with library experts Jason Imbesi, Matt Carruthers, Breanna Hamm, Anne Cong-Huyen, and Diana Perpich to organize metadata and investigate web tools for managing a personalized "master resource" of go-to costume resources on the web. Read about Christianne's Dash experience at her sabbatical blog: "Reskilling and Recharging: Research Crunching."

Meanwhile, Prat collaborated with library experts Leena Lalwani, Whitney Townsend, and Karen Downing, along with Gren Agregar of CRLT (Center for Research on Teaching and Learning) to strategize about and conduct a comprehensive scoping review across multiple disciplines. Their resulting report is a living artifact.

During lunch, U-M Library's Stephanie Rosen and Rachel Woodbrook joined us to present an introduction to accessibility and an overview of the Deep Blue document and data repository.

The day ended with a shared recap of progress made and next steps. We look forward to continued collaboration with Christianne and Prat.
