The digital scholar

5 Summary

This week you have looked at some of the practical challenges you and/or your organisation may face when adopting a digital scholarship approach. The experiences of Gold and Brier at City University, New York offer one perspective on how an interdisciplinary graduate programme might look. You have also been introduced to a methodology for assessing the resilience of an organisation; its capacity to adapt and develop the attributes of digital scholarship while continuing to deliver the core functions for which it exists.
