Changes in the information environment are transforming traditional modes of scholarship on the liberal arts campus as digital technologies allow both new methods of analysis and publication and encourage collaborative research. Events in this track highlight the emergence of digital scholarship on the liberal arts campus. Spatial thinking and Text Encoding represent to methods of analysis enabled by new technologies. Both are examples of the emerging field, the digital humanities (which takes in both humanities and social sciences, as well as interdisciplinary work with computer science), as it appears on the small liberal arts campus. Open Access offers a new model for publication for both traditional and digital scholarship.
