The Digital Library Brown Bag Series began in 2003, and continues to cultivate interest from both IU and beyond. The Series originated with a focus on digital libraries – standards, tools, and trends in the field – but has since expanded to include all areas and topics relevant to digital scholarship, including digital humanities and open access publishing. Brown Bag presentations focus on local practices and emerging trends, and are intended to encourage participation in digital library and digital research projects and initiatives.
