Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Research
No

About the Program

​With support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CIC is offering member institutions the opportunity to be part of a Consortium on Digital Resources for Teaching and Research to improve teaching and learning, enhance faculty and student/faculty research, and streamline administrative capabilities through a uniform and cost-effective system. Each institution in the Consortium will identify at least one collection that could be made more valuable and used more frequently if it were stored and shared via a networked solution. The members of the Consortium will convene once each year for three years to share ideas, collections, research projects, and teaching strategies. This Consortium is endorsed by the Association of College and Research Libraries.

About Artstor and Shared Shelf

Artstor, a nonprofit organization created by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in 2001 to serve the educational community, has helped hundreds of CIC colleges and universities make slide collections and storage space for slides unnecessary. Artstor has given faculty members and students access to almost two million images from hundreds of museums, colleges and universities, and archives that have contributed their holdings to the Artstor Digital Library.

Based on this success, Artstor is now making available Shared Shelf, a cloud-based asset management service that enables faculty and staff members across many disciplines and departments to organize and access documents, video collections, audio collections, and digital images. Shared Shelf is ideal for institutions that lack the expertise, time, or software to manage digital collections on their own.

Current Status

Teams from 42 CIC member institutions were selected to participate in the Consortium and are working together with CIC and Artstor staff, to use Shared Shelf to manage and make use of the digital resources they create. The final workshop for Consortium members will take place in Washington, DC, September 7-9, 2017.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Guidelines and Application Instructions

The institution will select a college librarian and the staff or faculty member most knowledgeable about that collection, and this campus team will work with similar teams from approximately 48 other CIC institutions, together with CIC and Artstor staff, to use Shared Shelf to manage and make use of the digital resources they create. The application deadline is April 3, 2015.
