Description

The Rowan Public Art project (http://publicart.rowan.edu) is an online, interactive digital scholarship website of campus public art. The project includes descriptions of Rowan's public art including original photography and video, an interactive campus map, and links to library resources on the art, the artists, and public art in general.

Digital scholarship projects like this offer libraries ways to collaborate across campus, position the library as leaders in collaboration, and demonstrate that the library is an effective collaboration partner. This project has allowed us to support the efforts and successes of others across campus.

We have collaborated in the creation of this project with entities as diverse as University Publications, University Planning, the Rowan University Art Gallery, and the Department of Art. All of them have contributed in significant ways to accomplishing this project.

Since we have launched this project additional collaborations have been initiated and proposed. The Department of Geography is already using it for course material in urban geography and public art and as a result are now partnering with us on a new project to collect data related to public art. A writing arts instructor is planning to use this project as a core piece of her composition class.

This project is but a piece of our long term goals with the Digital Scholarship Center at Rowan University Libraries. Soon similar digital scholarship projects will be initiated to develop research and creative opportunities, curricular assets, community outreach, and student and faculty success. These projects serve as models for effective collaboration across campus and transform the library into an organization that directly supports campus initiatives and goals.

Mike and Jon will discuss this project and how it fits within the libraries' plans with digital scholarship and collaboration.
