Digital scholarship has many layers: it's about tools to help students explore and convey knowledge in new ways, space to explore and create with these tools, and collaboration between departments, disciplines, programs, and SUNY colleges.

This project will survey the SUNY environment to create a network of those involved in scholarly communication. The goal is to create closer alignment and deeper partnerships for librarians and faculty in pursuing scholarly research, grants and publication.

Creation and facilitation of a system for identification and curation of shareable content produced by SUNY faculty.
The Open SUNY Information Literacy Portal provides faculty and librarians a central location for the sharing of best practices in information literacy-related content development as well as a database containing raw files of creative commons-licensed curated instructional materials including videos, online tutorials, lesson plans, assignments, and syllabi. By leveraging our collective talent, we hope to reduce duplication of effort and encourage an atmosphere of collaboration.
Development of a workflow tool to enable coordinated collection development, last copy detection, and resource sharing. By linking gift processing, conspectus analysis, and deselection among all the SUNY libraries, GDM Online will allow for enhanced acquisitions through usage data from ILLiad systems, book lists, and circulation statistics.
IDS Project will be making GDM Online available for free to all SUNY and IDS libraries during the Fall semester. GDM Online will be advertized on the IDS website and offered for a subscription fee to non-IDS/SUNY libraries.

Development of an online information literacy (IL) toolbook to promote information and digital fluency. This tool will fill a void for students as well as faculty by incorporating key information concepts at multiple levels (e.g., proximity searches).
In addition to conference outcomes, a digital online dictionary/encyclopedia promoting information literacy and digital fluency was developed.
