This video outlines some of the background being used in planning a Digital Scholarship Center in Drake Memorial Library, at The College at Brockport. Initial steps are highlighted in developing buy-in from administration, and support from a variety of stakeholders. Building on existing strengths and creating ‘use cases’ can help others to share and own the vision. Starting a digital media lab is expected to provide a proof of concept. Integrated planning and consistent messaging are stressed and references are shared.
