ASK ME ANYTHING - Kristen Mapes - Building your digital presence and website development

There are many ways to cultivate your digital presence as a scholar, and it often comes down to making decisions about what audience you are trying to reach and what activity will be manageable for you now and moving forward. In my work, I lead an 8-week long Digital Fellows program that works with faculty, staff, and graduate students to strategically develop their digital presence based around their own professional goals. I can speak to the Domains Initiative at MSU, which provides server space and website creation support, as well as to the brand-new MSU Commons, a social network and open access platform that connects MSU scholars with a wider community of over 23,000 scholars from around the world, and which also serves as MSU's institutional repository for open access materials.
