This report presents the results from the NPML’s Strategic Goal 1 Committee’s environmental scan of faculty-led digital scholarship activities at USFSP. Initial exploration of this topic began late in the 2017/18 year, while a more systematic environmental scan with semi-structured interviews of USFSP faculty occurred in the Fall 2018 semester. The following themes emerged:
● Faculty continue to collaborate with their previous R1 university
● Their purposes for conducting DS projects are both immediate and practical as well as long term and ideological
● Research and instruction are intimately linked
● DS is used for Instruction
● Students play a role
● Faculty experience multiple challenges: Internal and End User
● Faculty need for additional support in some areas
● Faculty need support/knowledge regarding project maintenance and sustainability
Using these results, the NPML Goal 1 committee developed a series of recommendations pertaining to: 1) Marketing, 2) Software 3) Supporting Research, 4) Instruction, and 5) Digital USFSP
