Establish the Library as a Center of Intellectual Community
Building a community of STEM Data Scholars at FSU will increase data literacy by allowing the Libraries to expand the reach and impact of research data services across the STEM community. This will be achieved through the creation of a STEM data fellowship program where paid student employees will teach and collaborate with STEM scholars.
This new initiative will provide web hosting for digital projects through an educational technology company called Reclaim Hosting. This service would be available to any FSU faculty members, graduate students, or undergraduate Honors students who wants a web domain to host content related to their research, meeting both research and pedagogical needs for which there is currently no solution on campus.
FSU's institutional repository, Diginole, is shifting from being hosted under FLVC's architecture to one that is maintained, in-house, by FSU Libraries. The migration involves a complex, multi-layered process that includes: building and sustaining this technical infrastructure in a cloud-based computing environment, deploying an updated version of the repository's software stack within this environment, and transferring the contents of the old repository to the new one in a way that maintains their integrity and discoverability.
The Diverse Voices in FSU STEM project seeks to call attention to the challenges faced by diverse and underrepresented groups in STEM as they progress through their academic career. This program aims to engage the entire FSU community in conversations that highlight what it means to be a STEM scholar in terms of one’s STEM identity.
Led by the Teaching, Learning & Engagement Instruction & Reference Unit, the Reference & Instruction Librarian and Library Instruction Specialist will use Articulate 360, a suite of e-learning aut
Florida State Open Publishing (FSOP) places FSU Libraries’ support for open access publishing and digital project development under one initiative. FSOP provides publishing services for journals, monographs, open educational resources, and digital scholarship projects. We consult on a variety of scholarly publishing topics and digital research tools and methodologies. We aim to provide open access publishing expertise, services, and platforms to enhance the scholarly output of Florida State University students, faculty, and staff. FSOP services include:
FSU's institutional repository, Diginole, is shifting from being hosted under FLVC's architecture to one that is maintained, in-house, by FSU Libraries. The migration involves a complex, multi-layered process that includes: building and sustaining this technical infrastructure in a cloud-based computing environment (Amazon Web Services), deploying an updated version of the repository's software stack (Islandora) within this environment, and transferring the contents of the old repository to the new one in a way that maintains their integrity and discoverability.
Create a preservation system for born digital and digitized materials to meet the needs of the FSU Libraries Digital Preservation Framework in AWS using Archivematica (AM), an open source software. Enable AM to work with DigiNole to allow for simplification of ingest processes for both access and preservation. Enable Ringling Museum to access AM as a test case for further expansion of service to other organizations.
The development and implementation of GIS and spatial data services within the library are designed to enhance data information literacy and critical thinking skills throughout the FSU community but with a focus on STEM scholars. This will be done through educational and research services to students and faculty that enhance their data information literacy competencies. These services compliment existing GIS services in other campus units and departments by providing open source alternatives as well as integrating open science concepts into spatial data research and teaching.
The digital project incubator will provide targeted support to a limited number of faculty and student projects in digital humanities and digital scholarship. This incubator program will allow the Digital Humanities Librarian and Digital Scholarship Librarian to provide targeted support to 5-10 members of the university community each semester (10-20 over the course of an academic year).
As research data instruction has become a priority for the library there is a need for a technical infrastructure to support these efforts. This proposal is to develop a pilot project to test the feasibility of a virtual desktop infrastructure based on our existing virtual scientific desktops for use in data instruction classes taught by our library faculty.
This initiative is for the expansion of support for immersive scholarship on campus–this includes research and teaching that utilizes 3D data through the forms of 3D printing, virtual reality, augmented reality, and interactive 3D publications. Funding has been allocated to allow hiring a graduate assistant to help with development of workshops and 3D/VR models.
