The DSN-IE acts as a forum for discussion, harness members’ collective experience and expertise in projects in the digital area. The aims the DSN-IE are to:
● Provide a forum for knowledge exchange between colleagues working on activities or services in support of digital scholarship from across Ireland, through online events and a dedicated HEAnet list;
● Build on the existing work to establish the nature and extent of current digital scholarship activities, and the infrastructure and skills required to support those in the future;
● Identify potential future opportunities for research libraries to support digital scholarship and researchers, drawing inspiration from leading-edge international initiatives;
● Deliver on an action plan of collective activity, to be delivered through the Network, based on the findings and recommendations of existing reports and surveys.
The DSN-IE has three working group covering skills, partnership, and strategy.
