Consumers as Creators: Understanding the annotation needs of the scientific community through the domain of botany
Trish Rose-Sandler(1), William Ulate(1), Thomas Finan(2), Patrick Cuba(2), Donal Hegarty(2)
1: Missouri Botanical Garden, United States of America; 2: Saint Louis University, United States of America
Missouri Botanical Garden and partners at Saint Louis University received an IMLS grant to analyze botanists’ annotation needs and develop a prototype within a digital library platform. We will give an update on the grant’s progress and engage the audience in discussions about the libraries role in providing annotation services.
Sustaining communities of practice in digital scholarship and data science
Jennifer T. Nichols, Jeffrey C. Oliver
University of Arizona Libraries, United States of America
Communities of practice afford sharing and learning opportunities, often among participants from disparate disciplines. The University of Arizona Libraries supports multiple overlapping communities of practice in digital scholarship and data science. Through collaborations with external partners, academic libraries have the opportunity to develop communities of practice.

Rhiannon Bettivia(1), Elizabeth Stainforth(2)
1: University of Illinois, United States of America; 2: University of Leeds, United Kingdom
The term ‘community’ carries widely debated discourses from various disciplines. Despite different disciplinary conceptions, ‘community’ is a political invocation, linked to access and inclusion. We explore the assumptions folded into discussions of community in the digital environment to understand how this term is used in relation to digital platforms.
