We help develop critical thinkers and global citizens who transform lives. The Academic Engagement Division supports these goals through its Research, Teaching and Learning, and Digital Scholarship departments.
The Digital Scholarship department is comprised of domain and functional experts who collaborate with UTL staff and other campus partners to grow, enhance, and manage a suite of tools and services that support the research lifecycle, promote digital scholarship and digital collections, and advance new and emerging modes of scholarship. This work involves contributing to the design and implementation of library workflows and technology infrastructure. We also work with students, faculty, staff and UTL colleagues to advance their research, scholarship, and teaching, through a combination of resources, education, outreach, and personal consultation. All of the work we do is intended to contribute to and expand a community of practice around digital scholarship at UT.
UTL librarians and domain experts are responsible for envisioning, designing, implementing, assessing and reporting on services and activities that support the goals and purpose of their specific positions. All are expected to function with a high degree of independence as well as in teams to ensure progress toward library and unit objectives. They are also expected to work in a collegial, collaborative, and professional fashion, and to engage in activities that contribute to the mission of both UTL and the University of Texas.
The GIS and Geospatial Data Coordinator is responsible for developing, implementing, and promoting centralized GIS services internally for the UT Libraries, collaborating with UT Libraries IT to establish and evolve the infrastructure for GIS-related digital projects, research, and teaching, and designing and administering spatially-enabled databases to support use of and access to UT Libraries geospatial data collections.
