Supporting the "Scholarship" in E-Scholarship
Borgman, Christine L.
EDUCAUSE Review, v43 n6 p32-33 Nov-Dec 2008
The opportunities of cyberinfrastructure have been both heralded and hyped. The express purpose of cyberinfrastructure is to enable "e-scholarship": new forms of scholarship that are more information-intensive, data-intensive, distributed, collaborative, and multidisciplinary. What does that mean for scholars, for academic libraries, and for campus information technology? In this article, the author explains why higher education needs to focus on the "scholarship" aspect of e-scholarship and offers cyberinfrastructure strategies that colleges and universities should implement to support the "scholarship" in e-scholarship. (Contains 6 notes.)
