Abstract

On January 19th-20th 2016, researchers, students, librarians, and other participants came together for the third annual Implementing New Knowledge Environments (INKE)-hosted gathering in Whistler, BC, Canada, for “New Knowledge Models: Sustaining Partnerships to Transform Scholarly Production.” Thematically, discussions revolved around the many facets of digital scholarship: creativity, implementation, institutional interface, opportunities, challenges, audience, initiatives, sustainability, and more. We provide a conceptual overview of the gathering, and the papers presented there that are now included in these proceedings.
