Mellon Scholarly Personal Archiving Project

Uncategorized

Welcome to our home for information, data, and observations relevant to Penn State’s personal scholarly archiving project.  Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, this one year qualitative research project seeks to explain and explore the specifics of and anticipated needs regarding the information workflow of disciplinary faculty, and on faculty needs regarding the acquisition of digital literacies essential to effective research management, robust scholarly creation, and continued navigation of the archiving process.

In the weeks and months to come, you’ll see on this blog project photos, updates, profiles of our researchers, presentations, and publications.  We welcome community dialogue, as well as any questions that you may have about the project.  Thank you for your interest in our work!
